Hugo Boss to reissue Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ suit

But it comes at a price...

Hugo Boss has announced that it will mark Michael Jackson‘s 60th birthday by reissuing the iconic suit worn on the cover of ‘Thriller’.

The fashion house won widespread acclaim back in 1982 for the design, which consisted of a sleek white jacket and trousers.

Now, they’ve opted to celebrate their own small part in pop history after the album went on to become one of the most influential records of all time.

Although remaining faithful to the original design, the new suit boasts a narrower silhouette and retains two pleats on the trousers. It also features buttons on the jacket cuffs.

But fashion aficionados will have to act fast – only 100 are being made; each suit is numbered and will sell for $1,195.

They have also announced the addition of white t-shirts that are modelled on the design of the original suit.

It’s yet to be announced when the design will go on sale.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the estate of Michael Jackson is currently earning more money than the late artist did when he was alive.

As reported by The Mirror, Jackson’s estate earned $74 million (£57.4 million) in 2015. The details have come to light in a 73-page court document which was filed at a Los Angeles court by his executors.

Those earnings include publishing rights, which brought in $2,448,584.99 (£1.9 million) in that year. Jackson’s merchandising arm, Triumph International, was the biggest-earner for the estate during that time period, bringing in $18.8 million (£14.5 million).
