Sources for good quality Godzilla shirts?

Postby Rodanex » Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:15 pm

Does anyone know of any online retailers that sell good quality Godzilla shirts? I've seen a few shirts on amazon.com that look decent...I'm really trying to find some shirts that have some of the old movie poster images with the Japanese text. I used to have a Godzilla vs Gigan shirt that had the original Japanese poster image. I bought it at an FYE store, but I haven't been able to find it online. I've found a few other shirts on ebay that look promising, but it's hard to tell if they are bootleg or not, and I'd prefer to buy from a licensed source.

Unauthorized/bootlegs GREATLY outnumber licensed products in the t-shirt realm, even on reputable sellers like Amazon. Imported Japanese shirts are hard to buy because they are cut very different (and surprisingly expensive before importing compared to American t-shirts).

Yeah, Japanese t shirts are TINY. in my experience you need to buy at least one, maybe two sizes larger than usual.

Yup. Best thing to do is read customer reviews if possible and watch out for things like poor quality printing or sized too small or whatever.

Unauthorized is the way to go these days. There are a hand full of licensed shirts you may still find for sale on Ebay in USA so keep searching and ask questions if you are not sure about it being official. Usually it will say it specifically. fan Shirt sites have some pretty good ones made with fan art work.

Bummer. Alright, I'll do some homework and see what I can find. I'm really kicking myself for shrinking that Godzilla vs Gigan shirt in the dryer, that shirt was awesome.

Skreeonk.com's Jon Uncanny has a few stylized shirts on teepublic - two of which are based on movie posters. I have them, and they're pretty neat.

Impact Merchandising used to have a huge line of licensed tshirts. I still have a couple. You might be able to find some out there still. If you're also a fan of Soundgarden Hot Topic is sellng a tshirt you might like.
