UPDATE 08/05/2015: Konami has unveiled its Metal Gear Solid 1984 collection of clothes via the Insert Coin website.

There are a raft of £22 T-shirts and £40 jumpers and other bits and bobs based on the Metal Gear Solid franchise and, specifically, the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5. There's a lot of Shadow Moses, Foxhound and Snake gubbins going. The £55 Diamond Dogs 84 jacket, right, looks nice.

Here's a gallery of images. Tempted?

ORIGINAL STORY 05/05/2015: While Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima's future at Konami is looking grim, that hasn't stopped the publisher from confirming future Metal Gear games and now even a line of clothing inspired by the tactical espionage action series.

"Step back into the 80's with our new MGS collection coming very soon!" the publisher noted on Facebook. "Stay tuned!"

The Boss' black cape makes her ivory camouflage ensemble really pop, but you know what they say: black goes with everything!

You think fashion's your friend, my friend, fashion is danger.
