This was a pretty cool auction. Johnny Depp recently wore the exact type of jacket to one of the Public Enemies premiers. Another validation that this guy knows his vintage. Truly one of the only vintage clothing revivalists out there, especially at his star caliber. At $1,691.99, this jacket was a steal.

Although labeled a size 42, I would say it is more like a 38-40. Even without the Depp association, this jacket, on a good day (ehem... less the poor economy), would have easily fetched $1,200. It could have and should have sold for well over $2,000, so congrats to the winner.
