Apparel: Clothing  


Unsurprisingly: Japan likes making Biohazard clothes. Between geeky shirts with genuinely hilarious engrish, to general logo emblazened shirts, to full on replica gear such as Leon's jacket, they have a lot out on the market for goods. Capcom have had a long partnership with watchmakers GSX to produce watches for the series as early as 1998, while actual clothing is another story: only really starting to shine around the time of Biohazard rebirth on the GameCube. I adore T-Shirts, so I'm giddy at all the ones they've added to the roster with the 15th anniversary, but there are also a load of replica items which are equally as stunning such as the Agent Collection line.

To clear up any confusion in the apparel run: articles such as shirts, jackets, trousers, gloves and so on fall under clothing in my catalogue. Anything that could be considered an accessory, such as wallets, watches or bags, will be falling under miscellania. Hopefully this'll make things easier for people to find.

Title: Japan>Game BIOHAZARD DANGER T-Shirt (日本ゲーム「バイオハザード」 DANGER Tシャツ) [CL01]
Manufacturer: Uniqlo (ユニクロ)
Size: JP XL
Colour: White
Released: 16/03/2009
Retail: 1,500円

Information:
In 2009, Uniqlo launched a Video Game shirt range, with shirts from Mega Man, Xevious, and many other franchises. Luckily, Biohazard got to join the crew of this. Released in collectible tubs, the shirts released for Biohazard simply feature a list of monsters seen in the first game + bonus Nemesis mention (with a nice chant of Zombie, Zombie, Zombie, Zombie on the bottom). Snagged this for a nice price before I travelled in 2011, which was awesome because I'd been hunting for one of these for a while.

This was available in both White and Neon Yellow. For collection purposes where the design is the key thing for me, I've only bought one colour variant.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Front Logo T-Shirt (S.T.A.R.S. FRONT LOGO Tシャツ) [CL01]
Manufacturer: Capcom (株式会社カプコン)
Size: JP Medium
Colour: Navy
Released: 16/05/2011
Retail: 3,800円

Information:
Released for the 15th anniversary, this simple but nice shirt sports a clean white version of the S.T.A.R.S. logo above the left breast, while the back sports a big print saying R.P.D. Special Tactics and Rescue Squad. There have been a number of articles done like this by bootleggers, so it's nice to see an actual official version.

This was available in both Navy and White on e-Capcom. For collection purposes where the design is the key thing for me, I've only bought one colour variant.




Title: Umbrella Caution T-Shirt (Umbrella CAUTION Tシャツ) [CL02]
Manufacturer: Capcom (株式会社カプコン)
Size: JP Medium
Colour: Black
Released: 16/05/2011
Retail: 3,800円

Information:
Released for the 15th anniversary, this shirt is both awesome and hilarious. For a start, we've got a large logo on the back of the shirt with a glowing universal biohazard logo and the engrish "NOT EXISTING AN EFFECTIVE CURE". The front of the shirt takes the cake. On the left breast, the Umbrella logo is featured and a estrangely kerned wall of text with such great things as "promisecomfortable heal thylife". You can check out a close up of it here to read the full blurb.
