Star Wars Special Edition Jackets: How to Buy One, How to Get Mark Hamill Autographed Jacket

It's time for shoppers to choose between becoming a Jedi or a Sith, with the latest collaboration between Columbia Sportswear and Lucasfilm. Star Wars fans can run to their nearest store or shop online for a special edition jacket, choosing either a "Dark Side" or a "Light Side" design.

Diehard fans can also get their hands on an exclusive Challenger Jacket signed by Luke Skywalker himself, actor Mark Hamill. The Star Wars Force Edition Challenger Jacket, includes an autograph from the actor as well as the message "May the Force be with you" and costs $900, comes with a certificate of authenticity, and is non-returnable. There are only 25 jackets available in select stores on December 6, 2019, with all proceeds funding academic scholarships and programs selected by Hamill. The selected shops are Seattle, New York City, Portland (Oregon), Disney Springs and Mall of America (Minnesota).

The release of this merchandise comes just before the release of the last installment in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and the release of Disney+ show The Mandalorian. Fans across America have already been using the force to try and lock down plushies of their new favorite character for the series, Baby Yoda, also referred to as the Child.

The regular special edition jackets combine an "iconic Columbia design with intricate Star Wars detailing."

The Light Side jacket lining features a lightsaber schematic print—including the unique kyber crystal that powers each sword—and colors modeled from the Star Wars archives. It also includes Luke Skywalker's vehicle ID, "T-65" for his X-wing Starfighter, inside the mesh sleeve pocket and the lettering "May The Force Be With You" on the interior storm flap.
