Topic: The Real Morroco Jacket

Another great item just added to my collection, it's the John Varvatos Split Seem jacket that the screen used matchless jacket was a direct copy of! It's also the jacket worn in the Martian.

I will add some better images being worn soon when it's stopped raining outside.

Very cool. Is the collar ridged with wire in it, or does it droop?

Best,

Very nice Ross. ajb007/martini

Glad you managed to pick up that size 50. I still search for a 52. I look forward to more pics.

After several releases of the Marine Blue Suede Racer jacket I'm surprised John Varvatos never  released this in both the Soil color and in a color matching the Spectre Morroco (preferably in their Star USA line).

Yeh would be good if they had as it is a nice jacket but the are probably not even aware the matchless SA version was a direct copy.

We bugged customer service enough for the Racer to be re released. Might be time to bug them about this.

Four years after The Martian, the best look yet at the JV Split Seam jacket on screen appears...in a commercial for Touch of Modern worn by the company's CEO Jerry Hum.  ajb007/lol

I caught the commercial this evening while eating dinner. Weird seeing it after all this time. Weirder yet is the timing. Barring postal delays, my JV Split Seam jacket is due to arrive tomorrow.  ajb007/biggrin

Nice casual look by Mr Hum with his jacket. Where did you manage to pick your one up from WD??

Re: The Real Morroco Jacket

My JV Split Seam jacket arrived. I am very pleased with it.

To answer nafets47, the collar does have a wire and does not droop.

For such a light jacket it has remarkably heavy zipper hardware. I also believe that the zipper is more apparent in the JV jacket than the Matchless version, keeping with the John Varvatos aesthetic.

If it were a 52 it would be perfect, but the 54 still fits. After 4 years of searching I really can't quibble.
