This Death Stranding Jacket Cost Nearly $2,000, and It's Already Sold Out

There goes my Sam "Porter" Bridges cosplay.

Video game apparel usually hews closer to logos on T-shirts than expensive fashion; but over the weekend, Errolson Hugh's Acronym label launched an outerwear jacket in the style of Death Stranding. It was roughly $1,900, designed in partnership with Hideo Kojima and Yokji Shinkawa, and it's already sold out.

The J1A-GT Gen 2.2 official Bridges variant had input from Kojima Productions, but most notably Yoji Shinkawa, a long-time Kojima collaborator in the art department. The jacket certainly fits the look: the navy tone and layers aside, the Bridges logo assures that anyone wearing this will look the part for a trek across the ruins of America. You'll need to supply your own Bridge Baby, though.

Retailing at approximately $1,900 (€1,750, via Kotaku), the first batch reportedly sold out almost instantly. It seems demand is high for some Death Stranding wear. That, or some people are feeling a little eager to spend their stimulus checks.

The Acronym store page says more are available via the Kojima Productions Japan store, so if you're still eager, you can try your luck there.

Death Stranding was one of the stranger and more perplexing games of 2019, though it's hard to say it didn't leave an impression. The odyssey of Sam "Porter" Bridges and his Bridge Baby across a ruined wasteland is set to hit PC in June, and a new photo mode was recently added to the PlayStation 4 version as well. Picking it up on either platform won't set you back as much as the jacket, but it's also a bit harder to wear.
