    yes, I want the jacket…
    BUT I’d settle for ANY outtake pic from the rubber soul cover session

  2. ALEX OF BRONX says:

    Good point Kwai,
    Are there any photo’s of the Rubber Soul cover before it was slightly stretched out ?
    You can get the jacket from The Beatle convention people along with Ringo’s Abbey Road jacket and the 1965 Shea Stadium suits, but they ain’t cheap.

    My next garden will be even bigger

  7. ALEX OF BRONX says:

    Thanks Mark. Great picture of my favorite Beatle Album. As hard as it is to pick.

  8. Kwai Chang says:

    Do any pics of this jacket pre-date the album?

    His smile is to die for cute. I think it’s a sweet picture of John. He’s not pulling one of those faces, but looks kind of mischievous anyway,

    The email for the Beatle Convention people is THE FEST FOR BEATLE

    I think that my friends were at the Hard Rock Cafe in Los Angeles and saw it on display there within the last year. They videotaped it in its display case for me. Not 100% sure though.

    The jacket is available at Beatlesuits. Costly, but awesome.

    Kwai, this particular pic was taken at LA press conference in August 1965 so it well and truly pre-dates the album sleeve photo. John got the jacket in England just before that third US tour (August 1965) at the time of “the dental experience”. I can’t think of any photos pre-dating that of him wearing it.

    Thanks, Car!
    That is some crucial info…
    (the jacket is alive)
    he was teasing us until Rubber Soul!
    iconic suede lives on…
    (I’m interested in the repro…I wouldn’t want to hurt the original)
    …very cool…

    Here’s the link to the reproduction jacket. There are some other really cool photos of John in the jacket here.

    Sorry, Tammy, if this is not kosher. I just wanted to share. I am not affiliated with Beatlesuits (although I have bought from them :) )

  17. Kwai Chang says:

    @Since 1963…
    Thank you so much! That looks like the right one. Very awesome!
    I am truly grateful.

  18. Tammy says:

    No that’s fine, when do i get my free promo Shea jacket? (size XL) :-)

    I have one of the Rubber Soul jackets. It’s a great jacket, I’ve had it for three years now. It was made right off of Lennons original jacket, which Russ had for a day. He did it right, even down to the flaws. I guess John’s was really a cheap no name brand jacket, but it looked cool so he wore it…..
