It’s a good month to be a geek! We’ve already gotten Avengers: Infinity War (okay, technically it came out last month), Deadpool 2 is this week, and Solo is next week! And with new film releases, come lots of new geek fashion products. Which works for us.
- It’s honestly taking everything I have not to order Musterbrand’s new Sith Apprentice cardigan in red. I love the black one that I have SO MUCH.
- We already tweeted about it but Po-Zu’s latest addition to their Star Wars line is a Luke Skywalker replica boot that can be worn two ways.
- I really want these Black Panther socks from Stance. Why must my feet be too small?!
- I’ve been a little iffy on ThinkGeek’s blazers but I have to admit that this Chewbacca one for men is actually pretty good. It’s the use of the bandoleer that works for me
Our House Brand at White Hot Room should honestly just be capes. We love capes. Give us all the capes. Thankfully, Musterbrand is out there providing. I adored their X-Wing pilot inspired cape and the Vader inspired one is equally awesome although more subdued. Subdued doesn’t mean it’s not recognizable though as I got compliments from multiple coworkers the first day I wore it. It is comfy, cozy, and stylish and really, what more could you ask for from a work wear piece?

Black Pumps: Nine West
Just like with their other products, the Vader cape is a more subtle twist on a well-known character while still being identifiable to fellow geeks. And, as is the Musterbrand trademark, the cape is very well-made and feels worth every penny of its list price. The only bad thing that I have to say about this cape actually applies to their other products but is most noticeable with the capes. My hair routinely gets caught in it which can get really frustrating at times.
Disclaimer: Musterbrand provided the Vader cape but only requested honest feedback and did not ask for a positive review in return.
If I could marry a jacket, it would be this one. Send out the wedding invites because Bria+Vader Jacket=OTP.
This Darth Vader jacket was just one of the pieces from the Star Wars collection that Her Universe did for Hot Topic in the fall. There weren’t a ton of pieces involved but it absolutely elevated the lines and took it to a new level. When I first saw the jacket online, I was very intrigued but unsure how I’d feel about it since I am a leather jacket snob. When I saw it in the store, I knew that I had to have it. Ever since the weather finally warmed up enough past winter coat temperatures, we’ve been in a very committed relationship.

Also, I’m a massive dork who decided that doing a self-timer photo shoot with a lightsaber was a good idea. But I doubt that surprises any of you.
