"Desperately Seeking Susan" Susan 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.

A fan is deperately seeking the jacket worn by Madonna. Sorry, that was hard to resist.

The jacket features a large rendition of the obverse side of the Great Seal of the United States, featuring a pyramid with the words "NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM" ("A New Order of the Ages") on a banner beneath the pyramid.

Come on Rick, be a man and admit that it is your next project. No need to be ashamed. ;) :lol:

On a more serious note, this looks like one of the typical 80's jackets with shoulderpats to me (oh the 80's where horrible, pictures of me from that time still cause nightmares :) ). I would guess that it was just some off the rack jacket with a costum job on the back.

Yeah, I watched it and meticulously went through the film frame-by-frame just like I would if it were a good movie. I hope nobody thinks that this is easy. :lol:

This was on Encore today and I watched it. I have not seen it in many, many years.
Say what you guys want, the 80s rocked in so many ways.

And yes, I love the jacket.

I have always said that. Back then cars were cool (I had a '78 Z28 and later a '79 Trans Am), I married a beautiful girl (now a beautiful woman) both my kids were born, the music rocked and was fun. Hairstyles were a blast for both guys and gals, MTV had videos, the mighty Van Halen was on top of the world (with two different singers no less), Pat Benatar was unstoppable, and Madonna did not have an English accent. The only thing I wish that never happened was the Billy Squier "Rock Me Tonite" video. :confused: :facepalm:
