"Surrogates" Tom Greer (Bruce Willis) 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.

Well, I ordered my Surrogates several months ago...Last word from Dan was sometime around the first of Oct...but, I've had an email out to him all week, and no updates.

So.... :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2:

Ha! Try PMing Stunt. Much higher chance of hearing back.

Apparently there was some sort of delay at the Vanson production facility...two weeks...

I say, again....verily... :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2:

Wow! That fit is perfect, and the jacket looks awesome as well. Would love to get one of these from Dan if the FJ order never comes through.

That looks superb. I really like the rich colour. The whole thing looks like a million dollars.

Just received my Surrogates vintage Californian back from Bill Kelso Mfg. They had it for the last several months making an exact copy for a customer and member here. While it was there they replaced the two missing buttons on the cuffs, patched some weak areas and replaced the lining which included adding a zipper pocket. All free of charge! I could not be happier with the results. Incredible quality and workmanship! Thank You Bill Kelso!

Great that they fixed it up and changed the liner. A well restortated original, what more could any jacket lover want?

You could bow out of the jacket collection game satisfied with something that good in your closet....just perfect!

and to make matters worse for the rest of us...it fits like it was custom made for you.

So jealous :lol:
