A charcoal and yellow bullet-riddled hoodie from the costume worn by Mike Colter as the character Luke Cage on the episode "Who's Gonna Take the Weight?" (103) of Marvel’s television series “Luke Cage.”
This heavyweight dark grey Carthartt cotton fleece hoodie features bullet holes from bullets shot at the invincible Luke; a gold metal “CARHARTT” engraved zipper; left and right lower pockets; and the orange and white Carhartt “C” logo patch. The inside of the hood is gold colored cotton and has two gold rings stitched at the base (neck) for a drawcord. The back bottom of the hoodie has four thin slits in the fabric of the ribbed yoke. The costume was worn in scenes of Cage breaking up a drug ring in Mariah Dillard's Crispus Attucks complex in Harlem.
