The only jacket I ever wanted as an 80s child

This is the only jacket I ever wanted to own as a boy during the 1980s. I never did convince my mother to buy me one. I wonder what they cost back then?


For his 1982 teen gang video “Beat It,” the Jackson picked a casually cool outfit that would inspire millions to wear zipper-accented red leather jackets in a decade-defining look for the ’80s. I guess Amazon sells this jacket for adults and kids.

  2. Ahhhhh! I loved this jacket! I loved that 90% of them were vinyl and then once in a while you’d run across that rare insanely lucky son-of-a-gun who got a genuine leather one.
