When the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, when the pillars of Heaven shake and you look that big old storm in the eye and demand that it give you its best shot you best be dressed for the occasion. What better than to don the tank top of one of the coolest characters of all time from one of the coolest films of all time?
Big Trouble in Little China.
I’m surprised that they haven’t been commercialised more and sold through normal stock outlets with the Big Trouble logo emblazoned on them (you can actually buy this version as well but really? What kind of Big Trouble in Little China geek isn’t going to go for a proper screen worthy one?). One of the websites that has been keeping the Big Trouble in Little China home fires burning for years now is The Wing Kong Exchange which has sold unofficial versions of these shirts plus a Dragon of the Black Pool Letterman Jacket which I wished I’d picked up when they were still available. But now the Exchange is selling actual licensed Jack Burton Fu Manchu tank tops that even have stressing to look more authentic.
Unfortunately I’m not really a tank top kind of guy and if you’re like me and have more of a Vanilla Sky Kurt Russell physique rather than a Jack Burton one you at least buy the design several places on just normal t-shirts which might be doing everyone a favour.
