Wu-Tang Clan create xmas fashion

The Wu-Tang Clan have designed a piece of festive knitwear.

More traditional than fashionable, the knitwear is a staple festive wardrobe item.

East Coast hip-hop group the Wu-Tang Clan have teamed up with Shredders Knit Apparel for a very limited release of a blue and yellow knit sweater.

Featuring the band's classic W logo, the 36 Chambers Knit W Sweater is now available for pre-order.

The jumper also features a killer bee on each arm, to signify the Wu-Tang off-shoot group responsible for 1998's album The Swarm.

The knit costs $79.99 and comes in sizes S, M, L and XL, but stock is limited.

This is a different look for the band, who are often seen in baggy tracksuits, T-shirts with do-rags on their heads. Though often their clothes are branded with their group's W logo.

The hip-hop collective are also getting ready for their 20th anniversary album release later this year.

Wu-Tang member RZA has previously designed a headphone series Chambers with audio brand WESC.

The rap giants also pioneered a hip-hop clothing brand at one point, which could see a revival in the pipeline.

There's no definite plans at the moment but ideas have been thrown about.

"We've actually been talking about it. I was the one who introduced the drawstrings on our pants, since I personally could never find a belt to wear and wanted to create options around that," he said. "And I have some new ideas about how to dress skinny guys like myself. We'll see where it all goes."
