If you're anything like us, four screenings of Magic Mike since midnight have made you wish you could take something home from that greasy stripper stage.
Thanks to Pistol Pete, you'll have that chance.
Nope, it's not Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum or Joe Manganiello, but it's just as yummy: Pistol Pete thongs used in the Greatest Movie Ever In The History Of Time Ever have inspired new forthcoming and drool-worthy looks for the seminal brand.
From a press release:
In a recent interview with Glamour Magazine, costume designer Christopher Peterson explains how the form-fitting custom designs were essential to the characters in the film, “All of the thongs that are out there are just the most ill-fitting, not film worthy things ever. We tried a million different thongs and none of them worked. So we found this great company called Pistol Pete who custom made all of them. They came in and we found fabrics for them, they printed fabrics for me, and everything was custom made, which took away some of that awkwardness with the fittings.”
Director Steven Soderbergh further elaborates to emanuellevy.com on the costuming by Christopher Peterson and explains Pistol Pete’s key role in fitting and design, “For a patriotic military-themed piece [Christopher] raided an Army Surplus store. But one essential element on which he did not compromise were the thongs, which were custom made in specific fabric and colors, from a company called Pistol Pete. “
“Being featured in films and on TV, and the overall success of Pistol Pete is due to our amazing customers; they inspire me to design and create,” said designer Peter Diaz of Pistol Pete. “We encourage everyone to stay tuned to our collection as we incorporate Magic Mike inspired looks into future campaigns that will be available to everyone.”
