Uniqlo Co., Ltd.
(株式会社ユニクロ Kabushiki-gaisha yunikuro) (pronounced "YOU-nee-klo" in English) is a Japanese casual wear designer, manufacturer and retailer. The company, originally a division of Fast Retailing Co., Ltd., has been a wholly owned subsidiary since November 2005, listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

In addition to Japan, the company operates in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, France, Malaysia, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Indonesia.

Uniqlo has had influence from the Metal Gear series. There were promotions for it in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Metal Gear 25th Anniversary and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance releasing limited edition T-shirts, sweat pants and hoodies based on the series. For Metal Gear Solid 4, they had six shirts released total, while only three were released for the United States (specifically, Snake wearing a box on his head, a stylized 4 with a literal Snake, and one that bore the phrase "Kept you waiting, huh?"). Two of the shirts that weren't available in the U.S. were available in Europe (such as a snake-like pattern on a slant, and a blue and gray design), while only one remained exclusive to Asia (the multi-colored Snakes). There were also at least three shirts, which were usable in Metal Gear Online.[1]

In 2010, Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa visited various Uniqlo stores across the world during the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker World Tour in celebration of the game's release and its T-shirt range at Uniqlo. They did a similar tour in 2012 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Metal Gear.
