"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" Ferris Bueller Jacket

We have all had those defining moments when we noticed a film personality on the silver screen wearing a fantastic leather jacket. Or maybe you fell in love with James Dean’s iconic red windbreaker. You thought it looked so great and you knew someday you would have one just like it. This is a forum to discuss those jackets.

I am a FIRM beleiver that leather jackets should never have knit cuffs or waistband, and NEVER have elastic on the cuffs or waistband. The only exception to the rule is the old A2's and the like from back in the day.

Believe it or not, I've had a couple of requests for this jacket to be replicated. I hope that the general negative feelings about this jacket haven't chased posters away.

If you like this jacket, speak up! ;) Just don't mention that vest... :lol:

Kind regards,

Sometimes a certain jacket hits you a certain way and there is no explaining it. For example, I like this jacket... I usually prefer the simpler-looking jackets too...

So did we ever figure out who made this Jacket ?

Ferris is such an iconic character yet his outfit has never been broken down .

:lol: (no means to hurt anyone) This is an amazing fashion wreck. It have to be the worst jacket in the 80s recorded history. Every detail is ridiculous.

While we are speaking of the eithies, what is the most shocking? This jacket or JCVD fighting in the fall against a 96 gold medalist? :shock:

Is the hanging lizard an optional extra on this jacket, Indy? :lol:
