JAKARTA (THE JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - As movie buffs flock to theaters to watch Black Panther, several local online shops are hoping to cash in on Marvel Studios' latest blockbuster hit by offering Black Panther-inspired baju koko or traditional shirts.

These baju koko may not be part of the film's official merchandise, but at a glance, they resemble the shirt Wakanda's King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) wears in several scenes.

Available in black, the Black Panther-inspired baju koko are adorned with intricate patterns that starts at the collar and travel down the front, according to kompas.com.

However, the baju koko come with pockets, unlike T'Challa's traditional garb.

They are available at online marketplaces such as Tokopedia and OL Shop starting from Rp 250,000 (S$24).
