Portland: Here's how to get the $500 'Star Wars' parka
From a galaxy far, far away... comes the limited edition parka inspired by the jacket worn by the cast and crew of the 1980 "Empire Strikes Back."
Super fans, take a look at the $500 "Empire Crew" parka.
According to KOIN 6 News, the unisex jacket pays homage to even the smallest details of the original design. It features a waterproof, breathable and critically seam-sealed outer layer to protect against the elements while the thermal-reflective lining and insulation keeps you warm.
The parka went on sale online at exactly 12:01 a.m. Friday — selling out within minutes. However, select stores across the world — including Portland — will carry the jacket.
The Columbia store in downtown Portland, 911 S.W. Broadway, opens its doors at 9:30 a.m. Fans are expected to line up hours before for a chance of buying the coveted parka.
The Portland store is also carrying a handful of the parkas signed by Mark Hamill, the actor who portrayed Luke Skywalker. Those jackets will sell for $1,980 with the proceeds going to charity.
This isn't the first time Columbia has created Star Wars-inspired gear. Last year, the store fired up Star Wars super-fans with a line of winter coats inspired by the costumes of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.
