Thought i'd share this new jacket find with some of you James Dean fans.

I've been looking for this jacket for quite some time, i've seen many similar but never quite the same match to the one in the movie.

I'm 95% sure this is the same model jacket worn by James in the movie Giant.

It's a barnstormer/mackinaw style jacket with with sheepskin lining & shawl style collar made by Double Duty, sold by Sears Roebuck.

I'm think its from the 40's but i've been unable to find it in any old Sears Roebuck catalogues.

Oh and it fits me pretty good too, which was a bonus.

Amazing find! and perfect fit with your style.
Will you replace the missing button, or remove the other two for screen accuracy? :p

Excellent eye. You must have been looking for this particular jacket for some time? Thanks for showing us a rare find. I bet some of us are going to be on the hunt for another one of those cool jackets. Being a James Dean fan myself, I hope I find one!
Thanks for sharing!

I also found one a couple years ago. Did you know that the front over lapping panels are insulated with Burlap. Mine did not have the Double Duty tag and it’s not a replica, the real deal like yours. Just put it up for sale. Probably regret selling.
