Poe Dameron and Finn’s shared jacket may have been the cutest moment in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now there’s a cardigan version.
Yours truly cannot tell you how many times she has made jokes or references to Poe Dameron giving Finn his leather jacket in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
(That, or the GIF that I have also joked about where Poe says “Keep it. It suits you.”)

Now to get to the actual fashion here. The Kessel Runway has found that Elhoffer Design will be making a new version of an earlier cardigan, lovingly dubbed the “Galactic Bromance Vintage Cardigan.”

Elhoffer Design’s product page says these will ship in June.
