J5 Launches Michael Jackson Jackets
Most of the press around the late, great King of Pop Michael Jackson has surrounded the manslaughter trial of his doctor Conrad Murray. The mood lightens a little courtesy of J5's collection of Jackson-themed jackets. The 'Thriller' and 'Beat It' jackets are exclusively available via Amazon.com. Jackson was known for his red leather jackets that he wore in the videos for some of his biggest hits and now they can be yours … if you have some expendable income.
The collectible jackets are both limited edition and exact replicas of the original designs. They are numbered and were made by the designer of the originals, so they come with a hefty price of $2,350. However, the jackets come with authentic signatures from Jackson's brothers Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Jermaine, along with an embroidered John Hancock from Jackson -- so it's like the Jackson 5 is celebrated with these jackets as well.
The 'Thriller' topper is constructed of black and red lambskin leather and features the signature winged shoulders. It looks exactly like the jacket Jackson wore when the epic, horror-themed video debuted in December of 1983. The 'Beat It' jacket features detachable sleeves so you can transform it into a vest, too! The jackets also come with custom garment bags and an autographed patch and are officially licensed through the Jackson estate.
If you have some cash you care to part with and are one of MJ's biggest fans, scoop one up! It can be an awesome holiday gift ... to yourself!
