    My fellow outerwear aficionados, it is my pleasure to finally lay to rest a decade-long question that I know has been on no one’s mind: What jacket was Jamie Bell wearing in the box office flop “Jumper”?

    There have been numerous forum posts (not here, but in other, less reputable jacket forums) about what this jacket could be. Is it a bastardized Brimaco? A Beck? A custom job? A Frankenstein combination of all of them???

    Well, gentlemen! Wonder no longer! For I, in my never ending quest to solve this millennium riddle, stumbled upon an eBay listing for the jacket in question being sold in a costume house inventory sell off and still bearing the mark of “Fox”, the production company. Not knowing the treasure they possessed, I snapped it up.

    And so, at long last, we have an answer...

    Wolff of Canada??? What...how......where...

    All kidding aside, I have no inkling of what this company was and my searches have all come up without answers. The jacket has clearly been modified for the purposes of a movie with artificial distressing and tears, but the underlying jacket is fantastic. The leather is flexible but hardy and the hardware has held up very well. I was curious if anyone knows more about “Wolff of Canada” and the jackets they made.

    And so, one mystery closes and another begins...

    There is a shop here in Burbank that sells costumes and clothing from movies and TV shows. I once owned a red velvet tuxedo jacket worn by Joey Ramone in Rock-n-roll High School. It still had all the production tags in it.

    Cool story. There are a ton of Wolff jackets out there, search "Wolff" "leather jacket", but I have not seen many discussed here. Maybe we should. Fit pics?

    Unfortunately, the jacket was “borrowed” by a girl who subsequently “disappeared” from my life. :( It was one of those great pieces that I wore in college to parties along with a red velvet paisley smoking jacket. There was also a cream colored blazer with black salamanders all over from a store in Georgetown called Commander Salamander.

    There could probably be a separate thread on jackets and other amazing things that were "borrowed" by an ex and never returned. Of course, probably none of us has pictures of any of them though....

    That’s a cool idea. I have lost at least one leather jacket and one guitar that way. Although to be honest they were given, not “borrowed”.

    I hit "like", but what I meant was:

    I'm lucky, all I lost that way was an antique silver perfume bottle that came down through my family. Wish I still had that, but it was probably ebayed years ago.
