You too can own Ryan Gosling’s Scorpion Jacket from Drive

So you’ve probably seen Nicolas Winding Refn’s critically acclaimed Drive and liked the look of Ryan Gosling’s Scorpion Jacket. Maybe you want one for yourself, are thinking about cosplaying as The Driver, or would like to gift it to a fan of the film. Well the jacket can soon be yours to own.

Steady Clothing are already taking pre-orders for an officially licensed replica of the Scorpion Jacket, which starts shipping from November 15th for $159.99 (about £103). They claim it’ll be a limited first run. Plus, they ship to customers outside the US!

The film’s costume designer, Erin Benach, spoke to GQ Magazine, explaining how Ryan Gosling was heavily involved with its creation and was, “really inspired by these Korean souvenir jackets.” The final design was tailored by Richard Lim of High Society in Los Angeles. Overall, 13 jackets were made for Gosling, which gets bloodied and dirtied up as the film progresses. 

If you really intend to complete the look, you’ll have to provide your own toothpick, gloves and driving skills.
