ON DECEMBER 15 THE 8TH EPISODE of the STAR WARS series premieres. Actually, it can be seen in some theaters on the evening before, Thursday December 14. Fans are already wild with anticipation for “The Last Jedi”, billed as “the next chapter in the Skywalker saga.”
Some devotees will be purchasing merchandise to build the happy buzz that surrounds such events before its release or to maintain the afterglow. Wearing apparel is a socially acceptable way to demonstrate fan status, without weirdly hauling around a toy, bobble-head figure, or poster. However, there are not too many occasions in which a graphic tee-shirt meets dress standards. And a subtle reference shows more ‘cool’, in my opinion, than an obvious, emblazoned, advertisement-like garment.
The perfect piece of gear, then, might be a Star Wars multi-functional headwear piece, which can be worn as a neck gaiter while running or walking. “Storm Black” can be purchased on Amazon.com although there are limited quantities, possibly because Buff™ itself no longer sells the Star Wars designs officially.
However, the official Buff™ website offers many themed items that other types of fans might love. There’s a wonderful “Winter Solstice” Android Jones Buff. US Ski Association pieces. UV Bug Stinger fishing versions in many designs. There are designs for the US Marines, Banff Film Festival, Survivor TV Series, National Geographic series, and more.
If you’re looking to express personal ‘fan-dom’, or want to surprise someone else with a not-too-expensive gift, check out Buff on its official website, on Amazon, and other online seller sites.
The weather is becoming more chilly and windy, and it’s a real treat for outdoor lovers to have a variety of clean, fresh, and fashionable neck gaiters in the drawer or gym bag.
