Clothing brand Columbia has licensed the rights to fashion designs from "The Empire Strikes Back" and, starting on Friday, will be selling the following items:
These are limited edition, with the company only producing 1,980 of each (1980 being the year "ESB" came out). Each one costs $400.
Rain Noe is a writer and industrial designer based in New York City.
For $400 I have one question: Spits or swallows? I don't care how it looks, or how warm it keeps me, if I'm plunking down more than a week's pay, it'd better give me a "happy ending," you know what I mean. After all, the stuff's probably made by slave labor in China, and they're being paid pennies on the hour.
They were sold out less than 8 seconds after appearing on the Columbia web page for sale.
This might be the best Star Wars product collaboration outside of toys yet! Nice work Columbia!
