Rockstar Games has announced an official clothing line based on Red Dead Redemption 2. The game developer partnered with clothing company Barking Irons for a line of clothing and accessories that are modeled after what main character Arthur Morgan wore in the game.
Available in unisex sizes from XS to XXL, the Red Dead Redemption 2 Collection, as it’s called, includes a number of items, beginning with the water-resistant Gunslinger jacket ($250 USD). Made of waxed cotton and leather, the shirt features bound buttonholes and the name “Morgan” printed on the collar. It also includes a Van der Ling gang inside pocket print and the Rockstar logo print.
Other items in the collection include the denim chore shirt ($150 USD), the everyday shirt ($120 USD), the Railroad shirt ($120), and the Union henley ($92 USD). The Collection also includes a saddle bag ($180 USD), a large tote ($75 USD), and a riding duffel bag ($325 USD)
“Modeled on the apparel worn by Arthur Morgan and featuring subtle nods to in-game design, the Red Dead Redemption 2 Collection by Barking Irons combines authentic, period era detail with contemporary Americana styling,” Rockstar says.
