I am making a replica frank n furter jacket, and moviejackets.com has been a massive help! I cant thank mike enough for the great help his site has been. However, i dont think the jacket featured on his site is the origional jacket. There are afew rasons:-
1. The photos Shown. The photos on the website dont feature a full view of the back. The back parades the painted union jack, and the UNKNOWN PATCH. none of these are photographed, to an extent that the triumph patch, which overlaps the union jack, isn't photographed on the jacket. If it was, the UJ would be on full show.
2. The patches. All the patches that are featured on the jacket are photographed, except the patch that is the hardest to work out. Nobody knows what this patch is, and it has caused me a lot of brain ache. The patch is located just below the union jack. It just seemed funny to me how the only patch that isnt photographed, is the only one that can't be worked out.
Also, the "59" patches especially, which are the second patch down on both arms, appear ragged and worn in the photos featured in this blog (and even moreso on the picture below). On mikes jacket, however, they seem too neat and prestine to be the originals.
3. The badges. All the badges arent photographed on his site. I can understand that he makes replicas, and wouldn't want to reveal all the badges, but this furthers my doubt. Also, the badges appear more dispersed on mikes pictures than they do in the film. This may be due to the size of the bust against tim currys frame.
If this is a replica, i give my respect to mike, as it is a very, very good one.
I dont mean any disrespect to mike, and dont doubt that he isnt able to own the jacket, as he owns the other jackets but if you were tim curry, would you want to keep the jacket? Matloaf kept his eddie jacket....
