Thanks dude! The grey is definitely either bleached or stonewashed. I’d say the original color was probably a dark blue. I’ll take some good closeup photos when I get home :thumbsup And I just picked up an original 2” guitar pin that I’ll post pics of later. Any idea on tracking down the Art In Revolution pin, by chance?
Thanks man! Good lookin out! Didn’t the original Art pin company bring them back for a while, too? Are those pretty hard to come by? Or dare I even ask about true vintage ones?
Anyway, onto mythology!
Now keep in mind that my jacket is authentic Guess, and I’m in the camp of belief that the OG was a knockoff. With that, it sure looks like the OG knockoff manufacturer had closely studied Guess jackets, (combining the two specific styles) but I couldn’t say whether or not the denim on the OG knockoff was identical to authentic Guess jackets of the same time. Not trying to muddy the waters, just establishing that the details of my jacket won’t be as defining as having an OG knockoff in hand, so grain of salt.

I would actually say that the base denim might’ve been black. (?) And further, I don’t know much about fabrics, but the two tones actually appear to be different “weaves”. Has this ever been noticed on the OG knockoff, or otherwise discussed on authentic vintage Guess?
And I didn’t mean to steer us off track, so anyone speak up if we oughtta move this conversation to keep this one tidy!
I've been adding to my skill set and Marty repertoire since I started cosplaying 4 years ago, and am glad to say I have made (or pieced together from thrifted items) all but one of his outfits - the Enchantment under the Sea Dance 'zoot suit'.
If you want details on or close-ups of any one of these in particular, let me know.

So cool!! With so many Marty’s, do you display them or throw em in the closet between cons? I always grapple with how to display an ever-expanding collection. And where’d you get your ‘55 jacket from? Such a great look and the skateboard totally sells it!
It is. I contacted the head guy Miki Ooyagi and he confirmed that it is in production. The first sample will be finished and shown off at the end of the month and will be fully released in October. If you plan to buy one when it is released do it fast. They do very limited quantities of each size. I missed out on the size smalls in 2015 and had to get a medium. They are also doing another run of the vest. No updates to it are being made though as it was pretty much perfect.
Do you know what the sizing is like on these?
