There are quite a few really good looking clothing items modelled after the NES controller, maybe because it looks so good and maybe because it’s such an iconic controller that brings a lot of people back into their childhood, giving a feel of nostalgia or even simple familiarity.

Isn’t it lovely? Isn’t it beautiful?
I have one, bought the buckle from New York and the belt from Harayuku in Tokyo, combining two elements from East and West to make a great installation of hold-my-pants-up goodness.
Guess which awesome hero also wore a NES belt?
That would be Captain N! The GAME MASTER!

And for the suave yet immaculately childish of us there is:
NES Controller cufflinks. Got mine from my wife for graduating Med School. They’re subtle details that reek of awesomeness, showing that beneath that stylish shell of yours you’re just an awesome guy that likes to have fun too.
Just like the rest of us.
