Celebrating Street Fighter's Silver Anniversary, SoCal lifestyle brand BAIT recently linked up with the iconic gaming franchise for an apparel collection.
The BAIT x Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Championship Collection is comprised of tees, crew necks, hoodies and raglans that capture the competitive spirit that has defined the franchise since arriving on the scene in 1987.
Apparel in the Championship Collection features a special design for the 25th Anniversary World Championship competition, the final round of which was held on December 8 near Capcom's San Francisco headquarters. Pieces have been treated to logos and colors inspired by another nearby champion — the San Francisco Giants. These elements appear on the Ryu half of the collection.
Counterpart Akuma-themed gear features screenprinted graphics of the martial arts master on the front with "SOLID" and the serrated "BAIT" logo printed beneath.
The BAIT x Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Championship Collection is available at BAIT's flagship store in Diamond Bar, CA and BAITme.com.
