leon’s-jacket-in-resident-evil-4-remake-is-a-real-thing-you-can-buy

Leon’s jacket from Resident Evil 4 could also be probably the greatest items of clothes within the collection (right up there with Ada Wong’s wildly impractical costume and… Wesker’s shimmering check-patterned swimsuit in Resident Evil 5?). The sheepskin-lined bomber jacket seems cosy, snug and classy, sustaining flexibility whereas defending Leon from scratches and bites (a minimum of till he eliminates it a brief approach into the game). For the freshly introduced Resident Evil 4 Remake, nevertheless, it seems like Leon’s outerwear is getting an improve.

Some observant people on Twitter spied within the smallprint on the finish of the teaser trailer that Leon’s jacket is in reality copyrighted, and “appears with permission from Schott NYC.”

Going to the Schott NYC web site, it did not take lengthy earlier than I arrived at what seems an terrible lot like Leon’s fancy new jacket, the Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket. Unfortunately, the outline makes references to WWII and the way it was worn by “non-aviators like Gen. George Patton” reasonably than “REIV and non-aviators like Leon Kennedy,” so we will not formally affirm this, however have reached out to Schott NYC for affirmation and are awaiting a reply.

Cross-referencing the jacket with the one we faintly see within the teaser, there are a number of similarities: the sheepskin lining at 1:07 matches up exactly (as do the tapered cuffs), then a few seconds later at 1:09 we see the cross-shaped seam on the again in addition to the seam working down the again of the arms, which once more checks out.

The jacket seems pretty—a lot nicer than the knock-off ‘Leon jackets’ you will get on eBay which might be made out of supplies extra appropriate for kink events than zombie outbreaks. At $1,500 it is a bit above my funds, but when Leon sheds it later within the game to disclose a black muscle-fit H&M t-shirt beneath, I’ll effectively chew for that.
