There is one long sleeve and one crew neck in the collection too. But if we can be honest, the stars of the show aren’t the tees. True fans will want this: BAPE X Michael Jackson Varsity Jacket which is a recreation of the jacket Michael wore in the Thriller music video.

It is not an exact replica; it is a recreation with a BAPE twist. Each of the jacket sleeves now rocks the BAPE lightning patch and on the front, alongside the M letter, is the BAPE’s monkey head logo. BAPE’s label can be further found on the elastic waistband.

There is another addition to the original design; the letter M has “ichael” in it. Those are not it. Around the back, you can find Michael’s full name spelled out, along with A BATHING APE branding.
