Indy Disneyland Indiana Jones Jackets

i went to disney land a few weeks ago and i finally got my indy jacket!!! ever since i was a little kid i wanted an indy jacket from that store but never had the cash well this time i had it and bought the jacket right away. It is a different style than i have seen over the years at first i wasnt crazy about the patch on the back i would like to have had it plain like indys but i love it now. Do any of you have jackets from disneyland?














and my new hat..... i out grew my old one

Other than the fact that it's a jacket, it bears absolutely no resemblance to the real thing.

Can't say I like it.


I had one as a kid... when I was 5 or 6. It's wool-lined. No patch on it though. Doesn't look anything like the real deal, either.

I gotta agree w/ R.A. and I mean you no offence, its a nice offical collector's piece but nothing close to Indy's jacket. Also I personally wouldn't wear it as it has the Indy logo on the back really big which is a bit ugly to me. As long as you bought this knowing it wasnt the sort of jacket Indy wears then your good.

Actually, the pockets couldn't be further then what an Indy Jacket's pockets look like. Im just hoping they didn't push it on you there saying it was screen accurate or anything, heres what Indy's jacket looks like :



Notice, no zipper pockets or secondary pockets, no shoulder epaulettes, and no elastic at the bottom.

You'll be getting comments on it as the movie draws closer and more so after it comes out. The hat and whip on the back pretty much tell you it is an Indiana Jones item oh and the name does too on the front. By comments I mean like "Cool jacket is that from the movie?"

I've been trying to figure this statement out all night.

And then once I factor in your practical retraction to that claim... well...

It isn't worth it to strain myself. Besides, the only thing I'd get in return would be a headache.




...poor, licensed jacket that bares no resemblance to the original. LEAST of all in the pockets. Hell it's more like an A2 than anything else.

Double-hell, it looks more like MacGyver's jacket. Or a Members Only jacket!


Gah, too much effort expended on this. It isn't worth my time.

Yeah, I know that when people come to show off their new stuff that they've been waiting awhile to get, what I always want to do is tell them how far the stuff is from what they actually want.

Next time I'll just lie to them and say I love it and it looks fantastic.

Looky here its my new Indy napkin :




See, I know its cool because it says Indiana Jones on it, and that tells me it's gotta be awesome and lets me know I just gave more money to George Lucas!

You can also use it to wipe up your tears when you realise you probably just payed way too much for something "official."

New Indy Jacket! Just like Harrison wore, Both made for humans, both 2 sleeve deluxe-o model. Be like Indy!




Only $600!

Why is it when I invision the Lucas Films marketing department, I see the temple of doom filled with slave children forced to produce sub-par faux leather jackets, and an old man who looks like the Venice Librarian from Last Crusade sitting at a desk Stamping "Indiana Jones" onto any p.o.s. that rolls off the assembly line...

Look, the man knows that it's not accurate. He knows there's not a huge patch on the back of the jacket or any kind of insignia on the front. He knows that this particular form of leather jacket, the sort that has that, is not the kind that's in the film. But, as he pretty clearly said, he's wanted a jacket from the Indy store since he was a little kid. That counts for something. That counts more to me, quite frankly, then anything about screen accuracy. It doesn't have to be perfect. Not even close.

Let him like what he wants to like. If this really seems to matter to you guys...

the jacket never said a screen used movie prop


its just a cool jacket and i would rather have people on the street say oh hey cool indy jacket opposed to having a wested raiders of the lost ark jacket where no one will know what the hell its from because it just looks like another leather jacket. At least with this one people will know where its from

I know that he likes it for it just being a jacket, he stated that already and I can and do read. I at no point said anything about him did I? I am talking about the people who come up with this stuff.

Oh and believe me plenty of people buy the Indy hat or jacket thinking it's just like the real one, I bought a DP several months ago so I have every right to be pissed.

Believe me, I've never for a moment doubted your ability to read. It's your priorities that caused the doubt.

I don't see how they could. The jackets, at least, if they have that sort of insignia, and the hats, perhaps, too, oughtn't appear that way. I don't know what a DP is, because the entire gear mentality is one that escapes me, with its fealty to some ideal of accuracy which suggests an overvaluing of that which has, in reality, very little. Get yourself a high quality jacket, by all means, but to get it because it's the sort that Indiana Jones wore? That seems wrong to me.

The right to be pissed? Yeah, sure. Go for it.

Im sorry it seems wrong to you that I along with thousands others prefer an actual style jacket that Indy wore for probably $30-40 more then what these cost, and one you won't get made fun of in because you have Indiana Jones written really big on your back. DP is dorfman pacific, I wanted as real an Indy hat as I could get, I thought the official maker of the hats at the time would be a good shot, instead I got nothing close to what I wanted.

You know who wanted a better movie accurate hat???

Steve Delk, did that work out for him?

Your basically lying to him telling him it looks good, bcuz you know damn well Joe Public is going to see that thing and laugh. That means I question your priorities.

I've owned that same jacket for a few years now - and get stopped on the street all the time to compliment me on it and ask where I bought it.

Great purchase man!

yeah its a great jacket i know its made out of high quality leather and is the offical jacket of the indiana jones ride...... I could careless like i said before if it looks just like indys jacket im not pretending to be Indiana Jones........... and i can guarantee that with a jacket like this you will get more complaments than a screen accurate jacket because those look like every other generic leather jacket on the market there is nothing special about them at all....

Im a DIE HARD Indiana Jones fan and I want people to know that thats why i got the jacket with the writing and the emblem on the back thants why i loved it so much as a kid

and anyone that doesnt like it fine you dont have to like it i was just sharing pictures with everyone because i thought this was for indiana jones fans..... not the its not screen accurate fanclub, and anyone says that its a stupid jacket can most likely not afford it anyway

Your basically lying to him telling him it looks good, bcuz you know damn well Joe Public is going to see that thing and laugh. That means I question your priorities.

I don't know the price differential, and if a quality jacket (NOT an accurate jacket, that those may happen to coincide is of no consequence to me) costs so little more than this jacket, than yes, fine, get the higher quality jacket, if that's all that's operating on your decision. However, Nurhachi1991 has made quite clear that he wanted that jacket for years. It doesn't say Indiana Jones on the back, as you are aware. (Also, about humor - I'm all for it, but employing it doesn't somehow make the position you hold right, or the argument you make good-natured.)

I don't really catch what you mean about Steve Delk. He's a producer, apparently, of the hats, but the point is lost on me. Recall, I don't care about gear. I never said that the jacket looks good. I'm willing to, because it does look good, for what it is, although I'm not wild about the logos either. If that's what you want, however, then fine, go for it. You don't have to denigrate him for it, nor his decision, if that's the more accurate way of pinpointing it. You act as though the reason Joe Public is going to laugh at him is because it's a jacket with Indy emblazoned on it. Maybe. I'm not sure. I'm not sure how much it matters.

Yeah, Indy had an influence on me. Hell, this forum had an influence on me. That's why I'm here. That's why I came back after being gone for years, and that's why I accepted the post of moderator. It doesn't mean that I signed away any ability to critique tendencies of my fellow fans, nor that I need to put together a perfectly accurate costume, or any costume at all. It doesn't mean I have to acquire a great pile of action figures from however many different producers, nor that I need to worry about Old Indy being excluded from the Young Indy films. It doesn't mean that I need to post pictures of characters and actors from the films and drool over them, or that I have to wait for the new film to come out to criticize it. It doesn't even mean that I have to have notions of what I want out of Indy IV, but it also doesn't mean that if I do have such notions, that I can't find fault with the film if they don't meet my conception of what a good film would be. There is no litmus test for being an Indiana Jones fan. I would imagine that my fandom is imperfect to many here. I don't doubt that, nor am I particularly bothered by it. But let's be clear here - I'm here by choice.
