Resident Evil 4 Remake: Leon’s Jacket is Real and You Can Buy It, But It’s Expensive

Of the many exciting titles announced during the recent State of Play, the official announcement for the Resident Evil 4 remake certainly turned some heads. Marking the return of one of the most beloved Resident Evil titles of all time, the Resident Evil 4 remake will surely excite a number of longtime fans of the series. Though, it seems that fans can also own a memorable piece of Resident Evil 4 iconography for an extremely steep price.

One aspect of Resident Evil that tends to go often understated is the character designs. Leon Kennedy, in particular, has gone through various costume design changes over the course of the installments he has appeared in. From Leon’s R.P.D. uniform in Resident Evil 2 to the bomber jacket seen in Resident Evil 6, Leon has had many different looks, but many consider the jacket he wears in Resident Evil 4 to be the most memorable. Now, fans of Resident Evil 4 can actually purchase the jacket.


Over on Reddit, a user named redgrave187 noticed a small disclaimer message at the bottom of the Resident Evil 4 trailer. The disclaimer mentions that Leon’s jacket is used with permission from a clothing brand called Schott NYC. After doing some additional research, the user found out that the jacket is actually available on the Schott NYC website and can be purchased for $1,795.00.

For most players, paying nearly $1,800 for a jacket is quite the ridiculous sum, but in a way, it’s incredible that an item from a real-world clothing brand is being used in a video game. Then again, this isn’t the first time this has occurred, with developers like Hideo Kojima inserting clothing and eyewear from various brands into games like Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid 5.

A number of hardcore fans of Resident Evil 4 will likely bite the bullet and purchase the jacket, given that it’s not just being used in the upcoming remake but also is synonymous with Resident Evil in general. Leon Kennedy is an important character to many fans of the series and having the jacket he wears in one of the most popular Resident Evil titles that features him would be a hallmark to any collector.

In any case, it will be interesting to see what other information gets announced about Resident Evil 4 in the coming months. Capcom already revealed that the PS5 would receive exclusive content for the Resident Evil 4 remake, so it’s possible that the Xbox Series X/S and the PC releases could have something similar.

Resident Evil 4 will launch March 24, 2023 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
