Active selection in cart:
This black and red leather jacket was worn by Kurtis Blow on the cover of his album "Deuce" (1981). The motorcycle style jacket has full-length sleeves, a stand-up collar, and closes at the center front with a black zipper and five (5) metal snaps painted red. There is a red leather racing strip down each sleeve that extends onto the shoulders, with the collar also faced in red leather. The sleeves taper slightly at the wrist, ending in elastic cuffs. The waistline of the jacket body also has an elastic edge. The elastic on the waist and cuffs is sewn inside the black leather so it does not show. There are two (2) exterior diagonally oriented inset pockets, one at each front hip, that are edged with the red leather and lined with black acetate fabric. Date: 1980s. Record ID: nmaahc_2015.185.
