If you happen to be an old school gamer who grew up at the height of the video game era (the ’80s, of course!) or are a trendy youngster who wants to look retro chic, here is a list of websites that sell fabulous retro video game t-shirts and clothing items at reasonable prices.
I absolutely adore this website! 80stees.com has been online for over a decade now, and they specialize in retro t-shirts that pay homage to 80s pop culture. They have a vast assortment of various video game related t-shirts for men and women, from Atari to Zelda, as well as everything in between. My favorite items in their shop are the Pac-Man t-shirts and acessories and the Colecovision shirts. Prices at 80stees range from $20.00 to $40.00, and make sure you check out their clearance bin for great bargains. This website is a must see if you are a fan of retro video games or 1980s popular culture.
I love, love, LOVE this site! Did I mention I love this site? This is really, hands down, the BEST site online for all things having to do with retro video games. They have t-shirts and accessories for men, women, and children and all at VERY reasonable prices (most of the stuff is under $20.00) and their selection is MASSIVE. Everything from classic 8 bit Nintendo, Atari, Sega, Pac-Man, Oregon trail, Street Fighter, Asteroids, and many, many, MANY more, there is something to satisfy any retro gamer’s dreams. Also be sure to check out the t-shirts and clothing inspired by countless TV shows, movies, and other assorted pop culture related goodies.
Online since 2005, this site has a great selection of T-shirts and hoodies inspired by video games of the 80s and 90s for both guys and girls .They also carry a cool selection of retro game themed travel card holders, which are alot of fun to use in your travels. Prices at this site are different due to the company being located in the UK, so everything is priced by European Pounds, but most items range from $15.00 to $50.00 dollars in US currency. Expect to pay overseas shipping fees if you order from here.
For all the gamer girls out there, Hot Topic’s website sells some great old school Nintendo related clothes and accessories. If you are a fan of the Super Mario Brothers, Hot Topic carries a fabulous line of Mario t-shirts and hoodies, as well as Mario lipgloss! Prices range from $10.00 to $25.00. Also, be sure you grab a handful of jelly bracelets while you are shopping, as those will accent your retro video gamer girl look perfectly. (If you are an old school gamer girl such as I am though, you might actually have a few jelly bracelets stashed away from the days when 8 bit Nintendo was the latest and greatest gaming console!) Also, don’t forget the hot pink nail polish!
