How do we know that the jacket is just that? Simple: Capcom itself has inserted in the trailer for Resident Evil 4 a disclaimer stating that the garment was reproduced in the game with the permission from Schott NYC.

Strangely, however, on the site of the American clothing manufacturer there are (yet) no references to the remake of RE4 nor indications of any kind of collaboration with the Japanese house. Maybe it’s still early?
