    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!

    The one James Dean is wearing looks like cotton.... Not nylon.

    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.

    There's an Italian brand called Vintage 55 that makes a replica of that Baracuta style jacket. It come in a nice shiney box too.

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

    http://www.americanapparelstore.com/n431.html

    I opted for the Dark Berry color and ordered it last week. I'll post pics once I get it.

    Too bad we don't have AA discounts anymore on SF but ebay still has some stuff at wholesale prices. W/ shipping the jacket came out cheaper than YQue's prices.

    After continually seeing your ensembles, I take that as a serious compliment, cultpop. Can't wait to get a hold of it. It tends to get a little brisk when going out to the bars at night around San Jose so it'll be a nice addition to the KC rain jacket I normally sport.
