James Dean's red windbreaker?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
In Rebel Without A Cause, James Dean wears a red windbreaker:

Where would one find a windbreaker like this? It doesn't have to be red, but I'd love to find a nice vintage windbreaker that isn't made of thin "Members Only"-style nylon.

Thanks as always!

American Apparel makes one that looks pretty much exactly like the one James Dean has on.

Ralph Lauren used to make that exact model in both the Polo and Chaps lines...

Check some stores that carry Polo.

Not that you asked, but Mr. Dean wore Lee jeans in that film, though he was a Levi's sort of guy; that is acting.

A tidbit of information about that jacket:
Jimmy's famous red jacket from Rebel was purchased from Mattson's department store on Hollywood Boulevard. Following his death, the store hiked the price on the jackets to a then exorbitant $22.95. Warner Bros. actually bought two of them for filming. Afterward, Jimmy gave one to his friend, composer Leonard Rosenman, who wore it until it fell apart. Nobody knows what happened to the other. You can also buy a replica here:
