The Beat (It) Goes On

You have got to be kidding me. The remaining members of the Jackson 5 are launching a clothing line called J5, that will be available in early February where all the "cool" kids shop. You know, Kitson, Urban Outfitters, and online at and

There will be tanks, tee shirts, and exact replicas of the beloved "Thriller" jacket as well as images of the Jackson 5 form the 1960s to 1980s plastered on the aforementioned pieces.

Rafi Weisman, the original designer of the jackets, was even consulted to create the replicas for the line. The “Thriller” jacket comes in soft red leather with black detailing and and “V” design on the back and the “Beat It” jacket comes in red or white leather with chainmail detailing and diagonal zipper designs. The catch? While the tees will run from between $45-$55, the jackets will cost around $900.
