For the Naruto fan, Hot Topic is now selling the Shippuden version of the blond ninja’s jacket.
Ripple Junction, manufacturer of tees based on anime, cartoons and movies, has faithfully recreated the jacket using a blend of black and orange cotton/polyester fabric. The familiar red spiral is embroidered on the back with another smaller gray spiral on the upper left sleeve. The smaller spiral has two vertical pieces of brown fabric on each side, with a stem of orange plastic on the right side. It looks a little strange, but when you glance at the actual jacket in the series, it makes sense (I have no clue what its purpose is for though).
Unlike the previous style that the younger Naruto wore, there are exterior pockets on both sides, but no MP3 player pocket on the inside.
The jacket is pretty comfortable, but not really warm when I put it to the test this morning. The cool Vancouver weather let me know to wear something warmer underneath.
All in all, it’s a really nice jacket. You can buy it in most Hot Topic stores or online.
