Hello everyone. Periodically, over the next several weeks, I'll be posting progress pictures of me producing a Marko Jacket Replica. I was just a little kid when "The Lost Boys" first came out, but even back then I remember thinking, "Man, that jacket freakin' rules!!!" So ever since, somewhere in the back of my thoughts, the little kid in me always lusted after it. So I got it in my head some time ago to try and re-create it. Well, it only took me about 16 months, but fortunately (with the help of some very talented and great friends) I managed to learn how. It was an extremely difficult and daunting task to say the least. It consumed almost all of my free time and was like having a second full time job, but it was mostly a labor of love. I'm a very busy person, so due to my limited time, I'll only post whenever I can, maybe once a week. All of this is simply for fun, your enjoyment and your viewing pleasure as fans of the movie - That is all. So anyway, thank you, and stay tuned!!! - C.Hellion

Here's a pic of the base-jacket I'm using. It's a vintage Levi's trucker jacket from the 80's, red tab, size medium, in a 40 regular. I picked it up from E-bay.

I'm taking a basic seam-ripper to the jacket's wrist and waist cuffs to give necessary fraying.

Sorry for this very late answer.
This work is awesome. Where's the next part?
