But the articles all stated (erroneously) that Jen bought the jacket James Dean wore in Rebel Without A Cause. Somewhere, one reporter who did not bother to check facts - or even watch RWAC - carelessly reported that, and everyone and their brother picked it up - again without bothering to check their facts. Poor journalism at its finest.
I was also working on this jacket and have some nice images of Mr. Theroux wearing it on the office computer somewhere.
Thanks for the link Rick. So just to clear all this up, Did she actually buy him the red jacket JD wore in 'Rebel Without A Cause'? Or was the whole JD jacket thing incorect all together? All this James Dean talk is making me want to go back and watch 'Rebel Without A Cause' again lol.
Back to the jacket at hand though, I just remembered looking at a jacket on eBay a few days ago that looked really similar to this one. It's not on there anymore but I'll try to see if I can find out what it was.
