Pistol Pete Featured in Magic Mike
Pistol Pete Menswear is proud to be featured in the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed release of Magic Mike the movie. 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.”
Marketing Director and COO Sami Tarrab is available to answer questions and to dispense additional information on Pistol Pete’s collaboration with Magic Mike for consideration in other media outlets.
