Gran Turismo is big in Europe. And I'm convinced that if we had an Autobahn of our own here in the US, it'd be even more popular here. …but given the way people drive these days, I'm pretty sure we'd need to issue special licenses for that thing.
Anyway, SCEE has teamed up with product licensing company Musterband to deliver the Gran Turismo Boutique . It's for all the hardcore gearheads out there who just can't get enough of Polyphony Digital's latest masterpiece. They've got all sorts of stuff, ranging from a t-shirt to a full-on race jacket (price range of $24.00 to $199.00). The GT logo is right there for all to see…well, provided they're looking at your waist, for some reason. Gamers might be confused but car enthusiasts won't be surprised at all; clothing associated with one's favorite brand is commonplace. It's why the aging playboys purchase a Ferrari baseball cap when they troll for younger ladies at the nightclub, secretly hoping to get the chick drunk enough so he can pass his rusty '95 3000GT off as an Italian supercar. So freakin' sad.
These look to be fine products; maybe you should pick up some stuff. I've still got a 350Z jacket and even though I don't have the car anymore, I keep the jacket 'cuz it's wicked light and surprisingly warm. And when anyone asks about the car – it remains a conversation starter – my response is usually: "well, I've upgraded…depending on your point of view." It's accurate.
