Clark Gable’s Jacket Goes Up for Auction
If yesterday’s icon gave you a yen for classic Clark Gable style, we’ve got good news.
This weekend, Gable’s riding jacket from Gone with the Wind goes up for auction, and for a specimen of 80-year-old style (masquerading as a specimen of 150-year-old style), it’s remarkably on point. The herringbone hasn’t aged a day, and the long tails aren’t that different from the style Monitaly’s been mining in recent collections.
Naturally, it looks best while you’re riding a horse…but a Vespa should do in a pinch.
