You are watching: James dean leather jacket
Does anyone understand if the fur collar ~ above this coat is removable?
There were 2 layout numbers because that this motorcyclejacket JD-1 and also JD-2. The "Limited execution Replica" jacket to be JD-1, it was ofHorsehide leather, actual Mouton hair collar and also had a heavy "Sam Brown" type belt. The JD-2 to be a "Collectors Edition" developed in Steerhide leather through a heany Dynel pile collar and no belt through the jacket, though the jacket had actually belt loops to include a belt the choice.These styles were licensed to be made by the James Dean Foundation. Other formats in the collection that we made to be a Replica deerskin fringe coat JD-3 and also the Collectors version in a separation cowhide JD-4. The collection additionally offered a naked lambskin vest JD-5.Gail
Thanks for all the information Gail! ns think the jacket i am interested in is either a JD-1 or a JD-2. To be the hair collars ~ above those detatchable?
Just a little bit of trivia. The James Dean Schott coat is modeled after ~ the California Hiway Patrol layout jackets.In reality, Deanwore a Horsehide J.C. Penney variation of the Perfecto if ridinghis bike. It to be auctioned turn off by Sotheby"s 2 years ago, and also fetched $28,000. The Schott James Dean Commerative is tho a quite jacket, though.
The collar is detachable on both the JD-1 and also the JD-2. Come add more trivia on the jackets, this collectionof jackets to be made in 1985 to mark the 30th.anniversary the his death. This really line consists of styles duplicating the original jacketsJames Dean wore in his movies. The replica the the motorcycle jacket the wore in "Rebel there is no a Cause" and also a west fringe coat modeled ~ one the wore in "Giant". Gail
Thanks Gail! I might be including one come my arsenal if ns can gain the male selling it to answer mine questions. I would like the horsehide JD-1 yet at this suggest the guy is not identifying it as the 1 or the 2. Is over there an easy way to tell lock apart by trying to find a labling difference?
I have been complying with this thread...these are nice jackets. I have the Schott catelogue for the year they to be made and have been definition to scan it and also put that on this thread. I can inspect for girlfriend on the two models and also let you know about differences...I think the HH had actually a removable furr collar and also belt however they may be gone currently or might have been included at some point to the other jacket. Ns will double check and post a response tonight.
As a side note, Gail, might you check out if Schott has any records ~ above what the production runs were on these two jackets?
Many thanks! lot appreciated! The one i am considering has a belt but I have actually know idea if it came through the jacket. It likewise has the fur collar however don"t know if it is the Mouton or the heany Dynel. Prefer I claimed this male is no too great at getting ago to me with answers and I have actually not watched it very first hand yet. If girlfriend could short article the pics that would be awsome! One thing I did notification in the really poor pictures that have been offered is that the belt that is being sold with the coat is a Sam Brown style however I have actually never checked out a Sam Brown style belt like this through the buckle to the left favor a consistent belt. Castle are constantly on the adjustable side v the twin hooks for rapid release. That is pretty much the standard and also has been because that police format belts since the 30"s.
Gail- have the right to you check this? Wolverine- go this look favor the pics you have?
Based ~ above the photograph you have posted, the belt shows up to it is in the very same embossedbasket weave architecture that to be the original belt ~ above the jacket. Both the JD-1 & JD-2 had the same big label through James Deans likness. Not a belt experienced so ns cannot comment on the design of the belt for rapid release. I do remember us purchased this belt native a belt firm called Cobra Tufskin and it was his style name the "Sam Brown" in his line of belts. As constantly there should be that tiny white ticket in the pocket with the style number of the jacket on it, which would confirm the style. If this person is no responding to her inquiries he may not examine for you. Simply looking at the photo with the belt, I would lean towards the jacket being the JD-1 in the horsehide. The odds the this person finding the specific belt the was top top the JD-1 to include to theJD-2 that did not have the belt space not many. Sorry but we no longer have actually our production records indigenous 1985, so i am can not to confirm andI perform not psychic the minimal production the were do of these items. Gail
Thank you so lot Gail! I no so long ago came accross a late 40"s at an early stage 50"s Horsehide CHP jacket and also have come to be a substantial horsehide fan. My wife loves this jacket together well and also asked me to save an eye the end for one in she size. Ns have, based on the info I have gained from this object ageed to purchase this jacket and the fact that it may really well it is in the HH JD-1 has actually me very excited. Ns will article some photos of the after it arrives. If wolverine would certainly still be ready to scan part pics indigenous the 1985 directory that would be fantastic! additionally if over there is anyone who happens to have the manufacturing numbers for the JD-1 and JD-2 jackets that would be great. I choose to know the history behind my keepers.
I simply checked the catalogue and also here space the details...
JD1 (in HH) has a actual Mutton sheepshin collar, satin lining and also brass hardware.
JD2 (in SH) has actually a Dynel-pile collar, poly twill lining and aluminum hardware.
There are various other details detailed but these space the only differences with these two models.
The pictures in the catelogue will certainly not carry out you any good...basically the 2 jackets look the same, exact same style and pocket layout...probably the best means to tell castle apart is the brass/aluminum hardware. Good luck!!
Hard phone call tell from the lousy pic yet it looks choose brass come me!!! :-)
I just found a picture of James Dean wearing the Schott CHP style that was provided to duplicate the commemorativeJD-1 jacket. This snapshot was taken exterior Schwabs pharmacy in Hollywood next to his bicycle in 1955. Although this jacket walk not show up in any kind of of his movies it seems as though this to be his Schott of selection (at the very least for a duration of time). I certain hope the one ns bought fits the wife... Expect it is in as good of problem as the seller says too... In any event ns will short article pictures of it! BTW the configuration of the beltbuckle seems to enhance the photos I gained from the seller! obtained my finger crossed!
