The Lee Marvin Sweater

November 26, 2011

Custom, handmade replica of the sweater Lee Marvin wore opposite Marlon Brando, as the leader of the rival gang The Beatles in The Wild One (1953). The colors (Navy & Mustard) of Lee Marvin’s sweater (only ever seen in Black & White) is discussed by Hunter S Thompson in his book Hell’s Angels.

Frank (Hell’s Angel’s President, Frisco Chapter 1955-62) was so completely hip that he went down to Hollywood and bought the blue and yellow striped sweatshirt that Lee Marvin wore in The Wild One. Frank wore it ragged, and not only for runs and parties. When he felt the Angels were being prosecuted beyond the norm he would make an appearance in the police chief’s office, wearing his Hollywood sweatshirt and demand justice.” – Hell’s Angels, Hunter S. Thompson

Each sweater is made entirely by hand, to order to ensure a perfect fit, using soft 3ply Via Meccanica 100% Virgin Wool produced in a 150 year old, family run mill.
