Drop Dead Releases 'Star Wars'-Themed Jackets for 'Rogue One'

One for rebels and another for defenders of the Empire.

Because simply buying a Star Wars novelty T-shirt is for amateurs, hip UK clothing brand Drop Dead has unveiled two new jackets for the release of Rogue One.

The denim option is a worn and graffitied mess, just as intended. The jumble of patchwork, distressed effects, silk-screened graphics and hand-printed tags—like “rebel scum,” “all the way” and “I fear nothing”—evokes the scrappy spirit of the Rebel Alliance. Han Solo’s jackets were never so cool.

The white mesh bomber is sleek and orderly, much like the soulless Empire it represents. Gone are the cluttered graphics and in their place are tidy patches bearing the iconography of the Dark Side. The outsize patch on the back features a stormtrooper alongside the motto “for the Empire.”

Drop Dead is the passion project of Oli Sykes, frontman of the British rock group Bring Me the Horizon. See how he crafted the Rogue One jackets below:
