As if the Shenmue, Jet Set Radio, and Streets of Rage shirts from some weeks back weren’t enough, those devious folks over at Insert Coin Clothing are once again whittling away at another brilliant Sega-based idea, apparently hell-bent on obtaining every last penny I’ve got.
Don’t be fooled by the rather plain-looking image you see displayed above–those are not just a few region-specific Dreamcasts and a Genesis/Mega Drive. Nope, they’re bags. That’s right, full-on bags themed after the two best Sega consoles (yeah, I said it). As you’d probably expect, the Genesis/Mega Drive bag is the bigger of the two, and should be capable of toting around your average laptop. The Dreamcast bag is a decent amount smaller, but can still carry other techno standards like iPads. Both bags will offer plenty of little pockets, so these will be just as useful as they are pretty.
While costs are still being confirmed, the bags are currently looking at a price of between £25/$40 and £35/$55. Preorders ought to be up in the fall, though Insert Coin is hoping to have some prototype images out before then.
Anybody gonna pick one of these bad boys up? I’m really digging the Dreamcast ones, if only because I can finally walk around my neighborhood looking like the idiots from The Typing of the Dead. Now I just need to figure out how to rig a keyboard around my waist…

Last month we posted on these little devils with much glee. Unfortunately, at that time of posting you could only pick up the shirts and hoodies if you were in Europe. Well, stop your crying, and stop searching for your father’s murderer because now you can pick these fashionable duds up no matter where you are in the world. Capturing styles and logos from Shenmue, Jet Set Radio, Streets of Rage (seen above), and even Shinobi, these awesome shirts will fit nicely with any Sega fans’ wardrobe. And if for some reason they don’t, well then you should just buy a shirt for me. Check the source link for all the new available Sega-relate shirts.
Normally I’d be a little embarrassed about my absurd level of excitement, but we’re all family here at Sega Addicts, so screw it–
GOD I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. LIKE NOW. I WANT IT. SO SO SO SO SO BAD.
I am positively shaking with excitement. If you’re like me, you’ve been wanting Ryu Hazuki’s iconic leather jacket ever since it first graced TV screens more than 10 years ago. Now, with Insert Coin’s brilliant Shenmue-inspired hoodie, you too can don Hazuki’s tiger-emblazoned threads to go looking for your father’s murderer… or to get groceries, or something. If you haven’t already clicked the link in fervent, pants-wetting excitement, then you might be interested to know that Insert Coin has also announced a flashy new Jet Set Radio-inspired tee. There aren’t enough words in the English language to describe how much I want these Dreamcast flavored clothes.
Both shirts are up for pre-order now on Insert Coin’s website. They go for some pretty hefty prices (the Shenmue hoodie goes for £35.00/$55.23, while the JSR tee goes for £25.00/$39.45), but man do they look like they’re worth every stinkin’ penny. With last year’s classy, understated Sonic Anniversary shirts and now these incredible little numbers, it seems that Insert Coin’s becoming a hardcore Sega-fan’s go-to shop. Hit the jump to see both amazing pieces of clothing in all their glory.
As mentioned a while back, Insert Coin Clothing is a company that makes video game-inspired clothing with inside jokes galore. They recently announced that they will be creating more clothing incorporating the following franchises: Shenmue, Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage and Shinobi. Do I smell possible cosplay opportunities, or an excuse to run around asking everyone where I can find some sailors? Granted these are all my own speculation. However, after seeing some of their awesome designs already, I for one am excited to see how they plan to incorporate these vintage, and not-so-vintage games into their own styles. Who else is excited to run around in nothing but a blue tunic while beating up gnomes? Oh, and who else is excited for these news shirts and hoodies?
