As someone who’s been playing World of Warcraft almost since it came out (gnome warlock, primarily, but currently rocking a worgen mage with a sweet top hat) I’ve always had my eye on WoW-inspired gear. My favorite two tee-shirts are a Dalaran University shirt and a Gryphon Airways t-shirts, both by the company that does the majority of WoW-inspired wear, Jinx. I was introduced to Jinx one magic Christmas season a few years ago by my brother-in-law, who gifted us with tons of awesome from their line. Since then I’ve been keeping my eye on their styles, and heartily impressed with their variety of geek and game-inspired clothing, those that have to do with WoW and those that don’t.
My recent obsession? The new hoodies that just came out in concert with the launch of Cataclysm. While I’m all about going totally geek in my choice of clothing, this hoodie series (available in Horde and Alliance, of course) is that perfect understated look of geek and chic. I mean, I can wear this to the gym. I can wear it anywhere. Sure, their other hoodies are cute, but these are the sort of thing I could take with me anywhere and not have people ask me why on earth my shirt says +20 frost resistance. Really, I just don’t want to get into that conversation most days.
Since my husband has worn some of his Jinx shirts and hoodies for well over three years now, I can vouch for their longevity. The women’s t-shirts are a little thinner (think the stuff from American Apparel) but I actually prefer that. It’s great for layering, very soft, and the cut is cute. As another bonus, Jinx has a 120 day return policy. Which is amazing.
So if you’re stuck on what to get your gaming gal this holiday season, look no further than Jinx! Reasonable prices, great sales, and great products all around. FTW.
