For those who have longed to don the garb of Solid Snake and his entourage, Konami delivers the answer. Now available on the Metal Gear Solid Store are various articles of clothing inspired by the characters from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PlayStation Portable.

Although Konami caught some flak for the fairly brazen use of product placement in Peace Walker, that hasn’t stopped the company from expanding its product offerings. The new clothing line features t-shirts, jackets, pants, and a hat, all of which will cost a pretty penny to score in the mail. All told, a complete collection of every piece of clothing offered (there are six) would cost upwards of $440.

But for those willing to dish out the dough, this sleek new clothing line will provide the "latest technical requirements… to support you to successfully complete your mission in any terrain under any conditions." There’s been no official word revealing whether or not these items will be mailed in cardboard boxes.
