From Kiss to the Beatles, rock-themed T-shirts and other merchandise related to pop music are hot properties at traditional stores, vintage boutiques and online shops despite the tough economy.

The players range from the Kiss Korners at Wal-Mart stores rolled out nationwide on Oct. 6 to Restoration Hardware’s new limited edition Beatles merchandise, including five album Ts portraying front covers of “Rubber Soul,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Hey Jude,” “Abbey Road” and “Let It Be.” (Customers who ordered the $59, pigment-dyed, cotton jersey, Resto Ts at the home retailer’s Web site started receiving deliveries Oct. 19.
