    A Tank Top from "First Blood." Orion, 1982. A former sweatshirt cut into a tank top, khaki-colored cotton, Adidas logo on the left breast; worn by Stallone as "John Rambo" though turned inside out onscreen so the logo could not be seen.

    "When I did the rewrite on the First Blood script, I thought about John Rambo's escape from the prison and how he would be wearing this flimsy sweatshirt. I decided to have the character wear it inside out because that's the way I used to wear my sweatshirts in high school when I would play football. It was the style in my neighborhood back then and I just thought, "Well, why not keep it going? It always looked kinda cool." Also, these sweatshirts would get incredibly cold and wet while driving on the motorcycle and they constantly had to be rotated with other identical ones so I could avoid getting severe chest colds and bronchitis. Thank God I found the tarp a little bit later on!"
