Musterbrand, the European fashion company famous for turning video game licenses into high end apparel, has revealed a new collection of outerwear themed after Valve’s first-person puzzle game sensation, Portal. Pre-orders are now open for three Portal-themed jackets. Come late November, you’ll be able to dress like a true Aperture Science Laboratories test subject. If you have the cash to afford the premium pricing.

The Portal collection includes a quilted outdoor jacket for men called The Engineer ($219), a quilted jacket with detachable hood for women called The Scientist ($219), and a lighter weight running jacket known as The Programmer ($129). Portal gun not included.

All three coats sport Aperture Science logo artwork as well as other unique touches to tie in with the games. For example the two quilted jackets have storm cuffs with thumb holes shaped like orange and blue portals. I’m not sure where exactly it’s located, but the lining of The Programmer running jacket is printed with the iconic “the cake is a lie” line. Cool stuff!

More details and individual product galleries are posted below. And that is not a lie.

The Programmer:
The Programmer is a versatile running jacket with a water repellent shell and bonded lining. The unique technical look is created by the use of a fine mesh layer sandwiched between the translucent outer shell and opaque inside lining. A particular highlight is the Aperture logo printed on the mesh-layer underneath the translucent shell, giving the jacket a very distinctive look and making it a true eye-turner. It also features a two-tone zip and Aperture themed prints.
