Jackson 5 Clothing Line Will Include Exact Replicas of the Thriller Jacket for $900
Ever lusted over MJ's red leather thriller jacket? Now it can be yours. The remaining members of the Jackson 5 have launched a collection of tees and leather jackets called J5, which will be in stores like Kitson and Urban Outfitters and online at RevolveClothing.com and 80spurple.com early February, WWD is reporting. The collection, which is officially licensed through the Jackson estate, will feature 24 concert-style tees and tanks with iconic imagery of the Jackson 5 from the '60s through the '80s. More notably for fans of the King of Pop, and though it has less to do with the Jackson 5, the collection will include exact replicas of the "Thriller" and "Beat It" leather jackets. A press release for the line boasts that the jackets are "produced, down to the detail, in the design of the original jackets." Rafi Weisman, the original designer of the jackets, was even consulted to create the replicas for the line. The "Thriller" jacket comes in soft red leather with black detailing and and "V" design on the back and the "Beat It" jacket comes in red or white leather with chainmail detailing and diagonal zipper designs. The catch? While the tees will run from between $45-$55, the jackets will cost around $900. Here's a look at the collection. MJ fans, will you bite?
