I’ve been a fan of BTS for around two years now and finally have been able to start buying merch to showcase my fandom. But, honestly, finding options for officially licensed merchandise in the United States has been a hunt. While I’ve scoured the BT21, choices via the official Amazon page, it wasn’t until I headed to Hot Topic’s BTS merch section that I finally let loose and got the chance to buy clothing to. So, I figured I would put together a list of 10 items in Hot Topic’s offering that I either have in my cart right now or have already bought. Additionally, because I’ve had the pleasure of buying different pieces of the collection, I can confirm that they are all true to size. Want to pick them up for yourself?
