The lesson here is that you too can charge a 500% markup over retail jeans if you sew the sign of an fictional crime organization onto it.

I assume Capcom is getting in on some of this sweet nostalgia money. If not, let me know how the lawsuit pans out.

Am evil dictator runs a country, but makes time to have a crime syndicate on the side? How does he do that - save time by tweeting a lot?

My apologies for the cynicism in advance, but as someone that’s pretty familiar with the Street Fighter/FGC scene, these will fly off the shelves. Not because they’re especially cool, or stylish, but because this group of people has a ridiculous penchant for spending hundreds of dollars on trinkets, figurines and silly clothes It’s a pretty extreme generalization, but I haven’t met a group of people so fiscally irresponsible.

I bet they eat avocado toast!
