"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" 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.

Jacket or bike? I think I like both of them, but I need a better photo of the bike.

I meant the jacket, but the bike is pretty nice, too. I'll take one of each.

That jacket is awesome! Looks great in a brown distressed leather.
Thanks for posting this, Rick. I knew my eyes weren't deceiving me when I first saw the trailer. Crazy how all I see when I watch movies or television, is jackets. :)

Absolutely stunning. Makes me wanna go out and buy a bike.

Beside the Brad Pitt factor, I wonder if one can achieve the style with a helmet? I can't imagine being able to go very far without a helmet before being pulled over (I live in the city).

I love that Bike! In case anyone wondered about the bike. Its a 1929 Indian scout, here's a link and some photos. Can't really tell what motor is used in the movie, does anyone know?

Has anyone else seen this movie? I just got back from it and loved it - I can't believe how they were able to manipulate his age so well.

Back on topic, this jacket was in the film for all of about 3 seconds. I was hoping to get a better look at it on the big screen, but oh well.
