Japanese Streetwear Brand NEIGHBORHOOD's 'Breaking Bad' Apparel and Merch Collection Is Awesome
Can you believe it's been nine years since the AMC hit series, "Breaking Bad" season finale? We certainly can't. The recent release of "El Camino," an epilogue to "Breaking Bad," on Netflix reminded us all how great the series was. To add to the excitement, Japanese streetwear brand NEIGHBORHOOD released a "Breaking Bad" apparel and merch collection that incorporates elements from the series in some cool ways.
“Breaking Bad” is one of the most iconic television series of all time, especially because the plot, with all its twists and turns, kept viewers at the edge of their seats like few shows ever have. The “Breaking Bad” collection includes jackets, hoodies, a crew neck and sweatpants set, long- and short-sleeve T-shirts and one extremely interesting item from the show. (We'll get to that in a bit!) Overall, NEIGHBORHOOD did an awesome job drawing inspiration from the series while merging its own outdoor, military and workwear-inspired clothing styles.
We're pretty sure Walter White and Jesse Pinkman wear some sort of lab coat or protective suit for a full 50 percent of their screen time in the series, so this is one of the coolest (and most fitting) pieces in the collection. Available in yellow and black, the coat also has the neat little “VAMONOS PEST ALBUQUERQUE, NM" detail on the right chest.
The crew neck sweatshirt and matching sweatpants use a pattern right from the "Breaking Bad" intro and highlight both the series and the NEIGHBORHOOD logo. This set would be perfect to wear while binge watching old seasons on the couch!
And now, the piece we mentioned earlier: a plush pink teddy bear. If you remember the second season, this bear landed in White’s pool after a plane explosion (and appeared in a few other places in the show). Without giving too much away if you somehow still haven't seen the show, let's just say the bear plays a major role in the series. And, not only is there the actual teddy bear, but there’s also a plain white T-shirt that has the bear on the front with the word “EVIDENCE” on the back.
