Comic characters are a rich source of pop culture symbolism, but few have as much weight in terms of war-time significance as Popeye the Sailor. The tattooed sailor was idolized by soldiers in WWII – who emblazoned the character on their gear and clothing, beloved for his sanctioned brawling on behalf of his sweethart; Popeye retains a strong legacy in the Armed Forces, and this Winter, Supreme is tying into that trove of symbolism with a capsule collection featuring the Sailor. The collection features an M-65 Military Jacket, Hooded Pullover Sweatshirt and a T-Shirt and Beanie available in two colorways. The M-65 has potential as a Supreme classic, and the T-Shirt might fit the bill for anyone not taken by some of the brand’s Rustoleum shirts. Check out the full collection after the jump. Available in-store and online December 16th, and at Supreme in Japan on December 18th.

Popeye was a sailor Olive Oyl was hot Bluto was bully And Wimpy ate a lot Spinach always saved the day And Popeye won the fight As Olive Oyl just wrung her hands While Bluto ran away I am what I am And do what I can Like Popeye the Sailor Man

Doh

I love popeye, I just dont think the products are good enough. Seems like whenever a designer is totally out of ideas or just wants to make quick $ without doing any work they just take whatever cartoon icon that hasn't been used lately and slap it on a hoodie and T-shirt and hat. The beanie looks like something you would find at a flea market and so does the jacket. Trying to bank on nostalgia without a good design is just cheap and disapointing. (This reminds me of seeing rappers in their oversized Disney character T- shirts back when) No freshness here.
