As someone who's been known to wear Ecko clothing from time to time and as someone who liked Halo (well, Halo 3, anyway), you would think that Ecko's limited edition Halo t-shirts would be right up my alley. But surprise! They all look kind of awful and feel like they were designed for people who want others to think they like Halo, as opposed to people who, you know, actually like Halo. It doesn't help that the descriptions are written in some lame kind of attempt at gaming shorthand. Take this one, for example.

Limited Edition Halo tees are a tribute to this legendary video game trilogy. Don't get Pwned! Laser shooting Spartans make up the screenprint design of this Halo tee. 100% cotton. Machine wash. Imported.

Gee, it's a good thing someone threw "Don't get Pwned" into that description. As an avid game enthusiast, I don't feel comfortable spending money with people who can't speak my language. Thanks, Ecko, for "keeping it real" on these shirts. Here's a look at a few of them, but you'll need to go to the Ecko online store if you want to see all six.

Wow, all of those designs are terrible.  They're like what middle school boys wear to make them think they look cool.

"Hey I have an idea. Let's place a bunch of Master Chiefs scattered about the t-shirt. Some will even be upside down. No wait, how about a spiral of Master Chiefs disppearing toward the center. No wait, let's make something that gangbangers who play Xbox 360 will wear. Well, let's make them all."

Way too noisy .... how about a coherent design, and not just something that looks like vomit.

Hahaha, why does this shirt have 12 (visible) Master Cheifs on it? Is that necessary?
What a ridiculous design.

I actually like that one. The other ones are ugly but that one, I would buy that. Not for the price that they are asking though, maybe around €15-20.

Wow! Those are really bad. It is like an intern designer had free reign and just put anything they thought was "cool" there. Ugh.

The demographic or wearing poorly designed shirts? I am fine with some of the "thug" shirts out there and often feel they look good but would never wear or own one, these however are just really really poorly designed and from someone who is not a halo fan in the slightest feel bad for HALO as an IP. I wear graphic print tees daily and like unqiueness, art style and well color but these really just look bad besides maybe that yellow one that everyone else feel is decent looking and not some spiral pattern of master chief.

I'd rather see a "Halo vs. Ecco" shirt. That's a matchup for the ages.

I read the "free head shots" shirt as "free nerd shots" and it was 100 times funnier. I probably buy the nerd shots shirt if it has anything but Halo on it.

Looks like Mr. Ecko threw up on his Halo 3 disk and decided that was the new clothes line for his company.
