Deep pockets for big coins

T-shirts of things you like are ten a penny, but what about something a bit more warming? The Teami 2010 clothing catalogue has entered its first season and the range includes some retro-looking Mario sweaters; although the price-tag might having you tugging at your collar.

Apart from being officially licensed by Nintendo, these tops are hand-knitted and priced at ¥36,000 JPY, that's around £272 GBP and roughly $422 USD on Shigesato Itoi's Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun website.

One thing we've noticed is that they also have two zippers; one going in each direction. That's either some trendy thing we're not aware of, or the designers have made them weight-gain-friendly.

Itoi is perhaps best known as the creator of the Earthbound series and his website doesn't just sell clothes, as everyday life products like kitchen tools, DVDs, music, and reading material are also available.

If you pose like this for photos, the sweaters will make you look slightly less odd

Whether you would want to spend that amount of money on autumn-wear is up to you, but we probably agree on one thing, they look good!
