    The Iconic 'Tiger' Jacket from "Rocky II." United Artists, 1979. Black satin, zip front jacket featuring the iconic embroidered tiger design on back; worn by Stallone as "Rocky Balboa" throughout the film.

    "In Rocky II he's just gotten married and this is the first thing he purchased after buying a car. Rocky has finally made a little bit of money and he goes out and buys what he thinks is the most special garment in the world -- a black satin jacket with a tiger emblem on the back of it. Rocky sees this jacket in a window and it just catches his eye and he has to have it. The tiger imagery was the precursor to Rocky III. It really triggered my mind, thinking about Rocky as a tiger. It was just the beginning of an idea and it all tied together a couple of years later when I did Rocky III. So,'The Eye of the Tiger' started with the back of this jacket."
