Hotline Miami Jacket – character or clothing?

Hotline Miami’s Jacket is the main character in the first game, but he’s also nicknamed that after their distinctive jacket, so it’s a confusing term.

Hotline Miami’s Jacket is the main character in the first game. He got his name thanks to the fact that he wears a jacket. Nice. But, what is there to know about him? Well, not so much, other than the events of the first game.

So, we’re hedging our bets – we’ll explore the character of Jacket a little bit, but also point you in the direction of a nice-looking jacket similar to the one that Jacket wears, so you can pick one up yourself.

He has had many different names given to him, but the one that stuck was Jacket – a name chosen thanks to his yellow-and-white-sleeved bomber jacket. The devs even started to use it after it became the fan favorite.

In general, Jacket’s time through the first game is full of cryptic story beats that lead to the ending, none worth retreading here. Let’s just say that finding the source of the strange phone messages is his goal, and it leads to a bloody conclusion.

Where can I get a Hotline Miami jacket?
