5 Star Wars hoodies to help you scream “NooooOOooooOOoo!” at Disney deal

By Gerald Lynch on October 31st, 2012

Chewbacca is now owned by Disney. Boba Fett is now owned by Disney. Darth friggin Vader is now owned by Disney. We love The Lion King as much as the next person, but following Disney’s buyout of George Lucas’s Lucasfilm production company for $4.05 billion, is the Mouse House really the best place for  Star Wars to live?

We’re not sure. Disney have done good things so far with Marvel comics, who they now own too. But there are few franchises more well-loved (and fiercely defended by vocal fans) than Star Wars.

What we are sure about though is just how many great items of Star Wars clothing there are around! And with the winter months now upon us, and the Halloween spirit also in full swing, we thought we’d pick out five of our favourite Star Wars costume hoodies, available from 80sTees.com.

Attack of the Clothes: Star Wars fashion prints by John Woo

We all know that Lando “Billy Dee Williams” Calrissian is a sharp dresser. Heck, even his Cloud City pad would be a dead cert for the title of “Best Intergalactic Crib” should the MTV show ever spread among the stars. But what of the rest of the Star Wars cast? With a whole empire at his disposal Darth Vader would surely be able to charm (READ: Force Choke) a decent tailor into suiting him up into some crisp threads. And what of an outdoorsman like Chewbacca? He’s going to need some serious Birkenstocks to keep those furry paws in shape.

John Woo (the illustrator/designer, not he of “Face/Off” fame) has the answers, dressing up the galaxy’s finest aliens and Empire henchmen on trend for his new “He Wears It” project.

It’s not only great fun, but they look neat too; the Clone Tropper in Junya Watanabe and Darth Vader in Band of Outsiders look particularly sharp! Still, there’s no saving Jar Jar Binks; in Maison Martin Margiela he’s even more of an annoying dick.

All of Woo’s Star Wars illustrations (alongside some Forrest Gump and Edward Scissorhands ones too) are available to purchase as prints from his Etsy.com shop, priced $60.00 USD.

It’s Ecko and I don’t want to burn it!

Is Star Wars cool? Since 1977 that question has been a divide of people, and one over which there is little consensus. Either way you look at it though you have to admit that it has given us some iconic imagery and characters, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and the humble Storm Trooper, which is the inspiration for this Marc Ecko hoody.

I don’t really like Star Wars nor do I like dressing like a 6 year old but I have to admit this is kinda cool, you could wear it like a normal hoody then you put your hood up and BAM! Storm Trooping time.

Available from Ecko online store. More images after the jump.
