Jackets and Sweaters

kylo ren hoodie

Catherine Elhoffer is back on FG because she went and made this totally awesome Kylo Ren-inspired hoodie for artist Brian Kesinger (who, incidentally, has been doing a fantastic Star Wars/Calvin and Hobbes mashup art series).

It seems Kylo Ren inspires art and fashion. I’m sure he’d almost smile if he knew.

Your wardrobe can finally achieve peak nerdiness with this Boba Fett cosplay windbreaker.

If Michael Cera was cast as Boba Fett, this would surely be his armor.

You’re going to want to get your wallet out for this one. Make sure it’s full.

Geeky clothing has exploded in the last decade or so, as evidenced by the Doctor Who inspired shirt I’m wearing as I type this. Some of this stuff, like my shirt, is distinctly as the lower-end of casual wear – your Target Jurassic Park shirts and dresses from Hot Topic. Some stuff, however, is distinctly high-end fashion, and has the high-end price tag to boot.

Adding to the growing list of high-end items is this range of Star Wars-inspired jackets from Matchless London. The range is a delightful mix of jackets based on items worn in the movies themselves, meaning you can buy Han Solo’s vest, an awesome jacket inspired by Darth Vader’s ensemble, Leia’s Hoth coat, and the kind of leather coat Obi-Wan Kenobi would’ve worn if he’d been a badass cowboy instead of a Jedi Knight.

Not only that, but they offer women’s cuts of several jackets worn by male characters in the films, including Han Solo’s Empire Strikes Back jacket and – no, but yes! – the coat Finn “borrowed” from Poe in The Force Awakens..

Take a closer look at some of the designs below.

Street Fighter V is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for a new wave of merch featuring our favorite punchy-kicky fightsters. That’s where Merchoid have you covered – they’ve just announced this range of Street Fighter licensed hoodies based on four of the most popular characters in the franchise – Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun Li.

The hoodies become available on February 19th, but if you preorder now you can save $10 off the list price, meaning one of these hoodies might make a lovely if belated Valentine’s Day gift for that special brawler in your life.

Poe Dameron’s jacket in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become an icon all on its own. Not only is it worn by the undeniably sexy Oscar Isaac when we first meet Poe Dameron, but it’s the jacket that brings Rey and Finn together. It’s also the jacket that launched a thousand (okay, more) Finn/Poe ships.

This replica jacket by Film Jackets isn’t perfect, but it’s certainly close enough to pass. It’s up to the wearer to bring out the magic that is obviously inherent in this famous outerwear.

When I was growing up, my mom always wanted me to make sure I had a jacket or a cardigan or whathaveyou in case I got cold. I admit, I was a rebel about it and didn’t listen much.

That said, I’d wear the heck out of this Jedi Kimono Cardigan from ThinkGeek. Unlike those scratchy wool things I had as a kid, this cardigan is made of a light, flowy wine colored material emblazoned with the Logo of the Jedi Order in black.

Do I think there’s something dark side about the color choice? Yeah, but that totally doesn’t influence my decision. Nope. Not even a little.

UPDATE: Darth Vader version added. Check it out below.

Admit it—you would watch the hell out of this movie. But would you wear it on a sweatshirt?

Artist Tom Hodges has a real knack for Star Wars and Disney mashups, as this Jedi Disney Princesses series demonstrates.

I think Jazmiin, Poe Kahantaz, and M’Laan are my personal favorites, but they’re all pretty awesome. Speaking of awesome, many of these designs are available on t-shirts and hoodies!

Check out the rest of the designs below.

kylo ren hoodie

No, we didn’t find it at Hot Topic.

However, this Kylo Ren hoodie is a lot easier to put on than a real costume. That’s very convienent when you’re storming out of the house because your parents don’t understand you.

Be ready to fight in any weather (or, you know, go to the store for beer) in this officially licensed, limited edition Captain America: Civil War hoodie. Made of 100% polyester, it sports Cap’s iconic star and shield designs.

No word on if it’ll give you super strength or speed, so try not to get too crazy out there while wearing it.
