BEAT IT!

This is it. The real one. The red jacket that spawned an infinite number of dubious imitations in the ’80s. Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” jacket. This is an incredibly iconic piece of wardrobe from the 1980s and you probably had one similar in your closet (don’t lie). Of all the clothing we own (and we own a lot), this jacket stands alone as the single most significant piece of pop culture in our collection. It’s got a sort of “Sgt. Pepper/Members Only” vibe and over twenty superfluous zippers. That equals awesome. Interestingly, there’s a backstage pass sticker from a 1983 Liza Minelli show attached to the inside of the jacket.
