A Definitive Ranking of ‘Star Wars’ Jackets

Grantland’s Jason Concepcion takes up the important matter of jackets from Star Wars:

Just because there’s a devastating galactic civil war in progress that has already involved multiple planetary genocides doesn’t mean that a man can’t look his dashing best while bull’s-eyeing womp rats in his T-16, or zipping betwixt the lumbering legs of an AT-AT in a snowspeeder, or flying an X-wing into a super-weapon’s utility trench. Say what you will about those scruffy, neosocialist rebel alliance hippies, but they understood the important branding message of looking rad. How else are you going to get people to sign up for a suicidal war, or to fly the Y-wing, the scrub vehicle of the Rebel Alliance?

This man is doing the Force’s work.

(Note that there are a couple screenshots in there from the latest trailer for The Force Awakens, if you’re avoiding such things.)
