Today in licensing deals we can't believe didn't happen 25 years ago (when they could have been more relevant): the Jackson 5 are launching their first-ever licensed clothing collection.
Called J5, the label will comprise men's and women's T-shirts and jackets and will arrive in stores in February. Among the items on offer will be versions of jackets Michael Jackson wore in the music video for "Thriller" and "Beat It." T-shirts will be priced from $32 to $58 and jackets will start at $600. The line will be sold at stores including Urban Outfitters, Pac Sun, Kitson, and Revolveclothing.com.
