Recently, I was introduced to this animation called Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, and while watching it I remember having one explicit thought:
Damn, Boruto’s dad is cool. I wonder; how would it be like if he was the main character?
Alas, I didn’t see any possibility of the above notion becoming reality. What are the chances of it happening, really?
As such, I could only watch on, as Boruto’s dad faded into the horizons. Sayonara, Boruto’s dad.
“Chottomateiii,” an exquisite, high-end voice intoned.
In steps luxury brand Coach, and for some reason, American actor Michael B. Jordan (not
the shoes basketball player).
“You wanna see a world with Naruto as protagonist?” the Creed actor asked gamely.
“None of that Boruto shit?” Coach winked.
“Well,” they echoed in unison.
“Welcome to a world… our Naruto collection.”
Coach Launches Naruto Collection With Michael B. Jordan With Sneakers, Backpacks & Clothes
The introductory paragraph might’ve been borne out of a weeb’s wildest dreams (and inventive imagination)…
But the gist is true.
On 1 October, luxury brand Coach revealed their Naruto collection designed by American actor Michael B. Jordan, and really…
What better way to tease their kick-ass collection, than an equally kick-ass trailer with the Creed actor sporting some wicked Sharingan eyes?
Note: Fitting too, considering how Naruto’s reportedly Michael B. Jordan’s favourite anime series growing up.
Here, you can check out the trailer for yourself down below:

A T-shirt starts from US$95 (S$131.39), while a shearling aviator jacket can fetch up to $2,500 (S$3457.72).
Damn, that denim’s looking dope. But here’s the thing;
It’s not the only dope artefact to have spawned from Coach’s latest venture.
And so without further ado, let’s check it out:
But of course, a collection wouldn’t be complete without some model pieces.

And So… What’re You Waiting For?
If you fancy high luxury apparel, and are a sucker for all things Naruto-related, there’s really only one option:
Hit up those stocks, and hit them up fast.
Because according to reports, items are flying off the shelves…
And this US$295 (~S$408.01) belt bag is already sold out.
So here’s a tip. If you want to get something on the list really badly…

Fastest fingers, everybody.
