Jacket from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

<< >>
Description
This brown leather jacket was worn by Harrison Ford as the title character in the film "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" in 1989. The jacket was a custom creation for the Indiana Jones film series, designed by Deborah Nadoolman Landis and made by Peter Botwright for Berman’s and Nathan’s costumers in London.
Filmmaker George Lucas conceived of Indiana Jones as a globe-trekking archeologist to pay homage to classic Hollywood adventure films. Jones is a reluctant hero who finds himself fighting evil-doers of all sorts while seeking to preserve cultural heritage. The Indiana Jones series, directed by Steven Spielberg, is among the most successful movie franchises in American history.
