JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Clothing

Apparel brand glamb introduced a new line of clothing inspired by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean. The collection will feature art and designs based on moments in the sixth part of Hirohiko Araki’s long-running manga. The line goes on sale in Japan in February 2023 [Thanks, Comic Natalie!]

The JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean clothing line includes t-shirts, shirts, hoodies, sweaters, and even sukajan (a Japanese silk coat inspired by baseball jackets). The art features original designs inspired by characters like Ermes Costello, F.F., Narcisco, Weather Report, and Emporio Alniño. They also call back to key encounters from the series.

In the Stone Ocean clothing selection, one t-shirt features a design of Jolyne in the pocket wearing a rat costume. It refers to her encounter with Gwess, a fellow prisoner at the Green Dolphin Street State Prison. Gwess, a Stand user, shrinks Jolyne down and forces her to wear a costume and become a pet named “Chorokichi.” Another design shows off Star Platinum, the Stand of Stardust Crusaders protagonist Jotaro Kujoh. Even the Green Dolphin Prison warden Loccobarroco has a shirt, with his pink alligator puppet companion Charlotte.

The actual pricing for the items hasn’t been revealed yet. Going by the prices for a previous glamb x JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure clothing line from 2021, though, items could range in pricing from 7,500 Yen ($51 USD) to over 19,000 Yen ($130 USD).

Pre-orders for the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean clothing line are open in Japan, with shipping and stocking set to begin in February 2023. The anime adaptation of Stone Ocean streams on Netflix, and the manga is published in English by Viz Media.
