DescriptionEddie Cochran Owned and Worn Leather Jacket (1950s). Like many real gone cats of the era, Rockabilly legend Eddie Cochran was known for his wild style, and this beige leather jacket is a wonderful example of just that. It features beige knit sleeves, cuffs, and collar, brown diamond-shaped buttons, cream silk lining, and two outer pockets. Has two labels, one reading "Clayton's of Virginia / Clothiers / Haberdashers" while the second reads "A Mastercraft Original Fashioned by Crown Togs Sportswear Co., NY". Measure approximately 17" from shoulder to shoulder, with 24" sleeves. Very Good condition, with noticeable wear from use and age, though the leather looks fresh. From the Sharon Sheeley Collection of Eddie Cochran Memorabilia.
