What the Discerning Diablo III Fan is Wearing at BlizzCon 2011S

Every year geek clothing companyJinx uses BlizzCon as an excuse to roll out their latest and greatest Blizzard-inspired fashions. This year's Demon Hunter coat and Tyrael hoodie make me want to be a better, thinner man.

Over the years Jinx has grown from a company that made licensed t-shirts to a company that designs and manufactures their own clothing line, creating unique and striking pieces that completely kick the ass of any other gamer clothing.

What the Discerning Diablo III Fan is Wearing at BlizzCon 2011S

Take the Demon Hunter coat, a garment perfect for hiding a crossbow, you know, just in case. It's a hip-length affair with a striking cut, custom buttons, and a cross design on the back to keep demons at bay. It's the type of garment you pick up even though the triple extra-large makes you look like a stuffed sausage, in the hopes that you'll actually lose weight once you get home and stop eating convention food. Just throwing out a hypothetical there, of course.

The Tyrael hoodie features a nifty two-tone design, a wing design that starts on the front and continues onto the back, and an incredibly sexy raised collar that would completely hide the additional chin that's caused by the issue I mentioned in the previous paragraph.

The two pieces made their debut at BlizzCon this weekend, with the Demon Hunter running $75 and the Tyrael $60 — prices that will rise once they hit the Jinx website after the show.

There's also a lovely pair of Diablo stockings for sale, but they snag on my leg hair. No, you can't have pictures.
