We’ve been asking ourselves this exact question. Don’t lie, since the release of episode one of The Last of Us on HBO Max, you’ve been trying to get your hands on Joel’s iconic jacket. After all, why wouldn’t you be? It’s pretty darn awesome, and Pedro Pascal sports it so well that apocalyptic-chic just might be the next big thing in fashion.
Closely following the game’s iconic narrative, this adaptation is one of the best we’ve ever seen. A tale of hardship, family, and zombies — The Last of Us forces us all to look through an incredibly gruesome mirror, and we love it, God help us.
Inspired by the game, one of the show’s most striking attributes has to be its incredible costume design. Subtle, nuanced, and absolutely real, the clothing each character ends up rocking is a revelation. Which is why Joel’s choice of outerwear has everyone scrambling like zombies to find out how to get one.
Well, we’re here to tell you that it’s just a click away. The official jacket of Joel Miller just so happens to be the Huckberry Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker. It comes in eight colors, seven sizes, and has the ability to make anyone look like they’re ready for an adventure into America’s wasteland. Or Starbucks.
Now, we won’t lie, at $298 Joel’s jacket is a bit pricey. For that money though, the craftsmanship behind the garment must be outstanding, even if we know that Joel himself probably didn’t pay that much for it.
Regardless of the price, if you can, go out and get one. That way if the crap hits the fan, you can be ready to survive in style.
