Has Red Dead Redemption 2 reignited your love of beards, flannel, and western wear in general? If so, today is your lucky day, as Rockstar Games has decided to team up with fashion brand, Barking Irons, to bring forth an official Red Dead Redemption 2 clothing line.
Rockstar announced the partnership with New York-based Barking Irons yesterday, which features a collection of western apparel and accessories that resemble the same nods to authenticity as the realistic elements found within Red Dead Redemption 2.
Barking Irons’ Red Dead Redemption 2 collection includes everything from undershirts to saddle bags, so that you can complete the authentic Arthur Morgan ensemble. Here is a list of the full collection available now, in sizes ranging from Extra Small to XXL:
Gunslinger Jacket: Water-resistant waxed cotton and leather, bound buttonholes, A. Morgan collar print, Van der Linde Gang inside pocket print, and Rockstar insignia print.
Denim Chore Shirt: Soft-washed, Japanese denim work shirt, antique brass shanks, A. Morgan collar print.Railroad Shirt: Weighty workwear shirt with railroad stripes, A. Morgan collar print, red Rockstar embroidery on front pocket, and western Rockstar insignia on shirt hem.
Everyday Shirt: Authentic western ticking fabric, bi-swing shoulder, A. Morgan collar print, western Rockstar insignia on shirt hem.
Union Henley: Soft-washed, American cotton, 3-button closure, A. Morgan collar print, made in the USA.
Riding Duffel Bag: Hefty 18 oz. twill cotton, antique brass hardware, cowhide shoulder strap, Rockstar logo print.
Saddle Bag: Water-resistant waxed cotton and leather, antique brass hardware, lined interior, cowhide shoulder strap, two large exterior pockets, Red Dead Redemption 2 print and Rockstar branding.
RDR2 Beach Tote: Sturdy, large capacity, 18 oz. natural canvas tote, antique brass rivets, and Red Dead Redemption 2 stencil print, Made in the USA.
It is a genius move on the part of Rockstar to partner with a clothing brand for an exclusive Red Dead Redemption 2 collection. Plenty of Twitch streamers have already taken to donning western wear during their Red Dead Redemption 2 streams. An official line of in-game apparel will make that cause even more accessible and fun.
The collaboration with Barking Irons specifically also makes sense, considering the clothing line has built its brand on “peculiar American stories” - which Red Dead Redemption 2 is no stranger to - not to mention the fact that the ‘Barking Irons” name also extends into the world of alcohol with their bottle of 100-proof “Barking Irons Applejack,” in which Arthur Morgan would no doubt happily indulge.
The apparel isn’t easy on the pocketbook, but the price is certainly worth it, if you’re looking for a quality, authentic Red Dead Redemption 2 look.
