8insertcoinclothing -

So, who here wears clothes? Brilliant, me too - I'm so into clothes I wear them every single day. Keep reading, clothes fans, because the next few paragraphs will probably be of major interest to you.

Like many of the world's t-shirts, Insert Coin's tees come in lots of nice colours, are made out of cotton, and have four holes so they can fit over your torso and cover your shame. But unlike many of the world's t-shirts, Insert Coin tees are emblazoned with charming iconography showcasing the icons, logos, and brands of the gaming universe.

In VideoGamer.com's ceaseless and undying quest to clothe everybody in games-related paraphernalia, we protested outside Insert Coin's office until the manager allowed us to give away some t-shirts on the site. You're welcome, planet Earth.

We have five t-shirts ready and waiting in our prize cannon, and they're positively desperate to be shot across the country (via the postal service) and through your letterbox.

We'll also have two more t-shirts to give away on next week's VideoGamer.com podcast - that's episode five - which will go out on July 20.

Both guys and girls of all shapes and sizes can get involved - each of the five winners will be able to select their t-shirt print and size.

What's your favourite? Neon likes the Borderlands Torque one, and Martin is quite partial to the Afterlife Gentleman's Club shirt because even thinking about Mass Effect makes him giddy.

There are some caveats, however: you can't pick the Sonic and Eggman, GameCity Limbo, Eurogamer Expo 2010 or Gamers Voice because of licenses and partnerships. We wouldn't have let you pick the Eurogamer one, anyway.

Just what does Insert Coin have to say about itself? "Insert Coin first spawned in 2010, when a group of avid gamers, hardcore designers, eagle-eyed fashionistas, and seasoned writers realised that gaming fashion left a lot to be desired. Joining forces, we put together a collection of unique designs, inspired by the world of videogames."

The *very* occasional funky gaming-related T-Shirt, for those lazy days around the house.

I believe postage is (or *was* at least) $10 - with the same price for the shirt, equalled not too pricey a garment.

Edit - it is actually $7.02 shipping to the UK. Doesn't seem that excessive for a decent limited edition shirt...

You buy Tee-Fury shirts? I look at them occasionally and because you can only buy one shirt at a time (usually) it's just not worth the delivery costs :s

It's certainly soft - much more so than the material used by Tee-Fury, if that is of any use (sorry, I mainly wear shirts, so only have that other brand as a reference point).

I just pre-ordered the Ocarina of Time one from their site. I'm glad to hear that it's good material, hopefully it's the soft kind that doesn't shrink in the wash too much.

My prize arrived 5 minutes ago - thanks again, guys! Really nice material. I'll wear it to the next Gaming Night at the Uni and see if anyone gets the reference... ;)

Excellent. I've sent everyone's picks over to Insert Coin, who I imagine will be sending them out promptly.

The podcast winners should be decided in the next few days.

I'd probably go for the "Torgue" top (From Borderlands) or the "Afterlife Club" (from ME2), maybe even the "Moa Burger" (From Halo: Reach)

I was trying to find a neat link so I could write "How to beat spammers to death....with a pointy stick" but I couldn't find one. It's the thought that counts.
