Snake Plissken Zipper Tank Top

by Travis on October 25, 2012

The retro reproductionists at Found Item Clothing are at it again. The target of their screen lust this time: Snake Plissken’s tank top from Escape From New York, which features no print and is accented only with a pair of aluminum zippers that run across the clavicle, making it, without doubt, one of cinema’s most curious garments.

What function do the zippers serve? One can only marvel at the possibilities…

On a related note, FIC has also developed a head-to-toe costume tutorial for said character. It’s pretty boss and you can peep it here or by clicking on the image below.

Compare with a couple of screengrabs from the film, embedded below for easy reference.
