BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. Enters the World of Fashion
with a Unique Sukajan Jacket Celebrating the Return of TEKKEN® 7 to the
Forefront of the Fighting Game Genre
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI
NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today officially announces its TEKKEN®
7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket. Blending the world of
high fashion with iconography from the beloved TEKKEN franchise,
BANDAI NAMCO has created a very special, limited edition statement piece
that any connoisseur of fashion or TEKKEN fan would be proud to
Gracing fashion runways from Paris to Milan, bomber-style Sukajan
Jackets are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Today’s Sukajan
Jackets exhibit decades of stylistic evolution and updates since their
inception after World War II when homebound American GIs were seeking
exotic souvenirs to bring home from abroad. Featuring very distinct and
intricate embroidered patterns sewn upon fabrics that were sometimes
taken from used parachutes, Sukajan Jackets have become iconic symbols
of freedom and rebellion; are a mainstay of urban Japanese fashion
culture, Yakuza style; and have been featured in countless films.
Designed by former Project Runway contestant Carrie Sleutkaya,
the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket features a reversible
design that showcases two very different designs, both inspired by
Heihachi Mishima, one of the most pivotal and controversial characters
in TEKKEN. The “statement” side of the jacket features royal
burgundy and gold coloring with a highly detailed embroidery of Fūjin,
the Japanese God of Wind, on the back, while the more traditional side
of the jacket re-imagines Heihachi’s signature dark gray gi in luxurious
stain charmeuse with the roaring tiger on the back. Each jacket is
crafted with painstaking attention to detail, from the eye-catching dye
sublimated patterns to the custom ribbing and welt pockets, the TEKKEN
7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket delivers an unparalleled level of
detail using over 440,000 stitches in its intricate embroidery work.
Lastly, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jackets will be
produced in an extremely limited quantity with each jacket numbered
individually to preserve its exclusivity. Offered at a suggested retail
price of $449.00 USD, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket
is available now for pre-order in unisex sizes ranging from small to 2XL
at the BANDAI
NAMCO Entertainment online store. All TEKKEN 7 Heihachi
Sukajan Jacket orders will also be accompanied with a copy of TEKKEN
7 at no additional charge*.
Currently rated “RP” for Rating Pending by the ESRB, TEKKEN 7
will be available in the Americas for the PlayStation®4 computer
entertainment system, Xbox One, and via STEAM for PC in early 2017. For
