Do they make those shirts for men!?
The Sniper questioning his team's fashion sense.

The Triad Trinket is a promotional cosmetic item for the Scout, Spy, Heavy, Engineer and Sniper. It gives each class a gold necklace (two for the Heavy and Engineer), and replaces the Scout's dog tag necklace with a golden chain. It also removes the white undershirts of the Heavy and Sniper; the Sniper's team-colored shirt gains three buttons and is tucked out, while the Heavy's collar gets flipped up, with his untucked shirt leaving part of his stomach revealed. The Scout and Spy gain broad collars that expose part of their chest.

This cosmetic item has two styles. The "Bear" style adds chest hair for the Spy, and has has no effect on any other class.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Sleeping Dogs on Steam before August 14, 2012 and before August 17, 2012 in Europe.

The Triad Trinket was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.
