I'm looking to get my son a replica of Quint's army jacket from Jaws. Anyone know where I could get the name printed over the right pocket?

I can't get the photo to load but it looks like standard military printing--last name over the pocket.

Necro-ing this. Does anyone know exactly what kind of jacket Quint wears? I'd like to find something similar.

I belive it to be a m1941 or 1943 army field jacket. Might even be a korean war army jacket because of the drawsting at the waist.

I did a lot of research on this a few years back and ended up with the exact jacket. It's a Korean War era M-1951 Field jacket with the drawstring at the waist and buttons and zipper on the inside. They're on ebay pretty regularly but run big so size down.

Well, I stand corrected. :thumbsup

Korean war, 1950-1953 would be the years you're looking for. Although the jacket was produced in the same style unaltered beyond that.

JAWS.

I have nothing else to contribute but couldn't sleep unless I'd interjected in this thread.

Want some other Quint gear?

Buy a yellow JAWS t-shirt.

Yes, I **** you not, this is Robert Shaw wearing a Jaws t-shirt. No photoshop, straight up:



How awesome is that?

This isn't unusual at all. Spielberg had several of these shirts made for the cast and crew. There are pics floating around of Spielberg, Schrider and Dreyfuss wearing theirs as well.
