MUSTERBRAND'S LADY SITH LIMITED EDITION TRENCH

MUSTERBRAND'S LADY SITH LIMITED EDITION TRENCH

I was first made aware of Musterbrand through Ubisoft during their Assassin's Creed: Unity launch event. I remember one of the giveaway's they had for a few lucky fans were extremely high-quality and very stylish (without being "cheesy") jackets inspired by their AC title. I was very impressed and always thought to check the clothing line out but then never really followed through.

The next occasion was during the the HALO 5 launch.  Musterbrand actually reached out to me about the Halo-inspired clothing they were offering. I loved a few items and ended up snagging a sweater from them in x-small because (and this is ALWAYS a bummer), they didn't offer any women's sizes.

While the x-small worked....you could still tell it didn't really fit properly and I'm old enough now to not put up with that anymore and deal with the futile struggle with trying to "make it work." So, I've let it gather dust in the back of my closet.

Fast-forward to Wondercon 2016 when I wandered past the WeLoveFine booth where they had a special section dedicated to Musterbrand's latest offering and team-up with Star Wars outerwear (in particular, Star Wars: The Force Awakens outerwear).

There was an amazing (albeit, rather pricey, but you get what you pay for) women's size, Lady Sith Limited Edition jacket. It is GORGEOUS. Rife with details but all subtly and tastefully done, this is definitely a piece of apparel for the fan looking for something a bit above average.

And don't limit yourself to just taking a gander at Star Wars! They cover a gamut of games and movies: Assassin's Creed, HALO, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Deus Ex, Witcher 3, Portal, etc..etc..

Musterbrand continues to impress me with the quality of the products they release. If I had one issue, it's the lack of proper women's options (and the ones they do offer are limited to female characters).

That said, they're def worth checking out for specialty items! And think of it this way, the more ladies that start requesting their products, the more they'll offer!
