In our third installment of our "May The 4th" Series celebrating Star Wars Day, we continue to try to answer the age-old question: what tracksuit style is most perfectly suited to each Star Wars character? Up on deck today are two of Star Wars most iconic, kind-of-shady-but-in-a-good-way characters - Han Solo and Lando Calrissian.
Han Solo - The Legend
Let’s get real for a second here: Luke Skywalker may have gotten the top billing, but I think we can all agree that the REAL star of the show was Han Solo. He had the vest. He had the attitude. He had the sweet ride, and the bad-ass wookie sidekick to help him fly it. And no matter what kind of editing trickery George Lucas tried to pull in that special edition, we all know who REALLY shot first when he got into it with Greedo at the Mos Eisley cantina. It takes a person with a special kind of swagger to step up to The Legend -- and Han Solo has got that swagger in spades.
Lando Calrissian - The Player
This one is also pretty self-explanatory. Only a player of the highest caliber would be cool enough to earn Han Solo’s friendship…and then cool enough to earn back the audience’s forgiveness after betraying Han to Darth Vader on Cloud City. But hey – players gotta play, and Lando more than made up for it when he helped spring Han from Jabba’s clutches and take down the second death star. The Player was made for those cats who are cool as the other side of the pillow – and Lando Calrissian definitely fits the bill.
