I'm a huge fan of the flick "The Warriors" and was wondering if anybody had any leads on the leather vests the Warriors wore. Or maybe one of the jerseys as worn by the infamous Baseball Furies.

Can you dig it?

"I'm a huge fan of the flick "The Warriors"..."

You and me both. ;)

I've got the patches of the Warriors AND the jersey the Furies wear along with a leather baseball cap like they wear as well. I can't remember the place I bought the patches from but they offered the vest as well. As for the Furies jersey and cap, you can find them on ebay from time to time. LOVE the Furies jersey.

You might want to invite the "The Orphans" to this thread or you'll hurt their feelings. :D

"They're so far down, they ain't even on the map." :)

So, there are folks out there making reproductions, just nobody remembers who they are?

Rough.

That's where I got my patches from. They did a great re-pro job on them. I didn't get the vest 'cause $200 seemed a little steep for something I would get a lot of wear out of. :)

A buddy of mine who works for the Austin Drafthouse ( a big movie theatre chain here in Austin) is helping reproduce the vests for an upcoming Warriors event. They plan being very faithful whille keeping the cost down to a reasonable level. I think he said they were going to shoot for the 100 dollar mark.

One funny thing, he said that while researching the vest they found that the original vest had incredibly tiny arm holes in order to make the wearer look tougher. Parantly that's one spot they are going to slightly change from the original to make it more real world friendly.

Can't wait

Those look pretty cool, but the vests do look pricey.
It'd be interesting to hear more about the Warriors event in Austin too and what's going down exactly. The vest reproduction project certainly sounds exciting.

My faves have to be the Baseball Furies tho: :)

Are they going to be making them to sell to the public, or just for the people participating in the actual event?

I just saw this and thought it warranted bumping this thread:

In the movie, a rival leader kills Cyrus and the Coney Island gang called "The Warriors" is wrongly blamed for his death. Quickly, the cops and every gang in the city are after the Warriors. In the film, the Warriors make their way from one end of New York to their home turf back in Coney Island. So, too, will your gang run the gauntlet, traversing the length of the city on the subway if you choose to join "the Warriors Subway Scavenger Hunt"

The heir to Cyrus will be there to kick off the rally and give your team instructions. The team that arrives at the screening location first with all aspects of the scavenger hunt completed wins.

Prizes:
Brunch on Thursday August 3rd with some of the original Warriors, and a set of nine leather Warriors vests.

Check this out: own Cochise's vest
There are also some repros on Ebay/

I just rented the "Director's Cut"... nice featurettes. One thing about watching the movie as a kid, being reminded of it everytime I watched 3-2-1 Contact.

Wow, that's awesome...

$4,000 is a little too rich for me, though. Well, A LOT too rich.

4k, yeah tell me about it. The color looks off, but it's probably due to the films lighting. The repros are always a darker shade..

Did you see that the patches are repros, not the original ones? To me, it's the patches that MAKE the vest. If I'm payong $4000 + for something, it'd better ALL be original. ;)
