Step 1: Find a Star Lord Inspired Jacket
Before we can start discussing the best way to style a Star Lord jacket, you'll need to actually get your hands on one. If you look closely, you can see that he actually wears a few different styles over the course of his movies. Some are a little longer than others, and a couple have an asymmetric zip or different textural details. The main thing that all of these jackets have in common are the overall color and style. Peter Quill's jacket is a dark red leather moto jacket with a short, standing collar, a zip front, and textured panels along the sleeves. You will need to find a jacket in this style and color to really get the Star Lord look. At Independence Brothers we can custom make the replica jacket in the perfect size.
Step 2: Make Sure the Jacket Fits
The key to making it look like you're wearing an article of clothing instead of a Halloween costume will be all about the fit. Peter Quill's still a little stuck in the 80s, so he prefers to wear his jacket in the slightly short and boxy style popularized by Top Gun. You can go this route, or you can try the more fitted shape that is trendy at the moment; the main thing will just be avoiding a jacket that looks too large and boxy. To make sure you get the right fit, sue a tape measure to carefully measure the distance across your shoulders, along your arms, around the narrowest part of your waist, and the fullest part of your chest. Compare these measurements to a size chart to make sure you order the correct size.
Step 3: Consider Your Personal Style
Since Star Lord has a few different jackets, you may want to try to select a jacket that actually matches your personal style. For everyday wear, it is a good idea to take a step back and think about what type of style you want to portray. If you prefer a more dramatic, goth look, it might be a good idea to select the longer, duster length coat option. Those who generally wear an edgy, rebellious sort of look may want to go with the asymmetrical, biker style jacket worn in earlier movies. For clean cut and athletic guys, the simpler moto jacket Quill wears in the later movies can provide a more traditional look.
