Are you a Guardians of the Galaxy super fan? Do you see yourself as the perfect mix of clever, funny, and sassy like Star Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt)? Have you, like many fans, been wondering what in the galaxy his new shirt from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 means?
Well, not only can you channel Star Lord himself with a new piece of geek apparel, but you can be â€œin the knowâ€ regarding this new curious wardrobe selection.
Enter the Angel Jackets Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star Lord Pullover Hoodie (just catching my breath for a sec…that was a mouthful). Itâ€™s the same gray color that the Lord wears as part of his new getup, itâ€™s relatively fitted yet still loose enough to be comfy, and it looks cool. You can even get it in a long-sleeve v-neck tee shirt to look even more like our favorite world-saving, ’80s music loving hero. I know what youâ€™re thinking: get to the point. What does it mean?!
Okay, so hereâ€™s what we know. While some people have done a lot of research on its meaning including some insanely in-depth language decoding (does â€œgears shiftâ€ mean anything to anyone?), Chris Pratt talked about his take on the shirtâ€™s meaning while being interviewed back in March:
â€œItâ€™s a real language apparently. Theyâ€™ve created a real alphabet, but itâ€™s from â€“ I think, I might be making this up â€“ I think itâ€™s from a candy wrapper from the first movie. This is like a space brand of some kind so itâ€™s like on my shirt the way anyone would be wearing an ironic Reeseâ€™s Pieces shirt or something like that.”
Take it or leave it, this Easter Egg fits perfectly into the son of Egoâ€™s wisecracking persona and would certainly have been a fun way for Marvel to give a nod to Vol. 1. Now, if thatâ€™s not a perfect conversation starter, I donâ€™t know what is. Itâ€™s also a great way to feel quite smug with the ultra-secret geek knowledge that you now possess.
Onto to the details of the hoodie. I actually really love it because itâ€™s warm but relatively light, so itâ€™s a smart choice for spring or fall. I will say that the sizes appear to be unisex and they run small. For reference â€“ normally â€“ if I want a hoodie to be fitted, I would choose a womenâ€™s small, while if I wanted some extra room, I would pick a unisex/menâ€™s small. I would categorize this as a â€œwomenâ€™s smallâ€ fit. The sleeves are a bit short; if you are used to having the cuffs go to about mid-hand, you may be disappointed as these only go to about the end of the wrist (see pictures below). That said, going up a size (or even two based on the fit you prefer) should do the trick. Iâ€™m happy with the size small, plus thereâ€™s always the option of rolling the sleeves.
Between comfort, unique style appeal, and price (currently on sale!), this hoodie is a fun addition to any fanâ€™s wardrobe. You can get the Angel Jackets GOTG Vol. 2 Star Lord Pullover Hoodie (phew…that name again) for yourself here.
