Hi everyone, i’ve been obsessed with this jacket that Robert Redford wears in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (My favourite Film). However i cannot find the fabric it is made of, i’ve looked through hundreds of fabric shop sites and can’t find that type of corduroy. If anyone has any advice or knows where i can find the fabric i would be so grateful. Thanks for all your time.

Looks like jumbo cord, it’s mostly used on sofas and the like. If you search for upholstery corduroy you should be able to find something very similar.

I am also interested in this jacket. I was able to find a really close representation of the corduroy jacket Butch wore on EBay. Banana Republic made a really close version of it. I’ve also been able to recreate the fur felt hats they both wore and found a straw Panama hat that looks just like Butch’s. I’ve seen the actual jacket Sundance wore. It was on display at the Autry Museum in LA about 25 years ago. It may still be there. If you have a pattern or are creating one I’d love to work with you on this. Feel free to email me at joelcharlesross@icloud.com.
