DJ-1176 Double Breast Color Nep Wool Work Jacket "YOUNG VITO"

70% wool, 10% polyester, 10% acrylic, 10% nylon

This jacket was designed with the interpretation that it would have existed from the early 1900s to the 1920s.

The name of this jacket, "Young Vito," comes from the jacket worn by Vito Corleone, the main character in the movie "The Godfather," Part 2.

The Godfather Part II tells the story of a young Don Corleone, who immigrated to New York from Italy.

In the movie, he comes to New York from Sicily at the age of 9. When he is asked his name by an immigration officer, he doesn't understand because he doesn't understand English. He thinks the officer is asking about his hometown and answers "Corleone (from a village)," and that became his name.

The area where young Vito lived must have been made up entirely of Italian immigrants (since he couldn't speak the language). If that's the case, he would have bought and made his own clothes in an Italian immigrant neighborhood. This means that there's a good chance that the designs were popular in Italy and other European countries from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

During this period, double-breasted work jackets made from materials such as thick cotton moleskin and wool melton were popular. Many documents have been found that show not only traveling salesmen and factory workers, but also railroad workers and postal workers wearing jackets with this design.

In The Godfather Part II, Robert De Niro's Young Vito also wears a double-breasted wool tweed jacket and works at a grocery store. The film is set in 1917, when Vito and his neighbor Clemenza started their underground business.

The DJ-1145 was reconstructed based on the foundation of this research. It is designed with a herringbone woven wool tweed, a brown base color with flying naps.

It has three outside pockets, all with arcuate stitching for a custom-made look. The buttons are two-hole with notched decoration, a design that existed in the early 20th century.

The lining is made of cupra, and the inside of the sleeves has yarn-dyed stripes, also made of cupra.
