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.

The collar type which is called design and dog year of original cutting, umbrella yoke is high appraised, both design characteristic and functionality, presently the tradition is kept. In Japan as for the jumper which is called [suingutotsupu], it is supported in many fans as an item of fixed turn, you can call one arrival which represents the English wind outdoor traditional.

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.
