    Anyone know a jacket similar to what Robert DeNiro wears in The Irishman?
    Much like Aero's 5-pocket "Hercules" but with mismatched pockets for some reason. Love the blue-collar functional vibe and I'm massive DeNiro/mob movie fan.

    This also got me thinking about the authenticity of the Aero "Teamster" jacket. DeNiro is seen wearing something like Aero's Teamster in the film but I wonder if such a jacket was issued as workwear or was just something the northeastern truck drivers just liked to buy. If I ever move back up north I'd like to get a longer-style jacket like the Teamster or himel's Canuck.

    This is not an actual Teamster jacket from back in the days. It has been made by the costume department:

    "Powell and Peterson’s team created a remarkable hip-length jacket made from tough brown leather that appears to be cowhide. Apropos Frank’s profession, this particular style is often referred to by Schott and other leather manufacturers as a delivery jacket.

    The jacket zips up the front, beginning a few inches up from the bottom just below the waist line, up to the neck. The jacket has at least five external pockets, with two set-in pockets on the hips covered with pointed flaps and a slanted hand pocket in front of each hip pocket. There is also a zippered pocket on the left chest that"

    It does look a a bit like the Sears Herculas as recently sold by @ton312

    Thank you Mike. I had used the search feature before making the thread but spelled DeNiro as one word so this one didn't show up. Cheers.

    The TFL search function can be tricky sometimes
