Description

    Jim Reeves Leather Jacket. Although Jim Reeves died early in his career in a plane crash in 1964, he forever changed the face of music and became the definition of what country-pop was. He was an international star, perhaps even more popular in Great Britain and Europe than in America. After his death, his popularity actually increased and in fact, he had six #1 singles posthumously. Two of his biggest hits, "Four Walls" and "He'll Have to Go," defined an entire era of country music. Gentleman Jim Reeves, with the style reminiscent of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, brought country music to a new, urban audience. Reeves was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967 and has the same iconic status as James Dean and Jimi Hendrix. This green leather jacket comes with the record album picturing Reeves wearing the same jacket. Made by designer Cresco, this jacket is in great shape with normal age wear. This piece represents a chance to own an article of clothing by a music legend whose true contribution to the genre is beyond measure.
