Hey, what kind of jacket do you think that Fry has?  And where could one get it?

Fry's jacket was supposedly inspired by the one worn by James Dean in East Of Eden.

It's a red jacket. It's animated, not real like Indiana Jones's jacket. So you can't actually get one in real life.
I'm sure you could find a red jacket, but it wouldn't be the same one, because the one he's wearing isn't actually real.

I used to have a coat with a very similar cut, though it was blue and grey...

Everyone here is, of course, acquainted with the differences between real life, and a television show, right?
IE. a certain animated science-fiction comedy, that will remain unnamed...

Good.

I heard a similar thing, but it's so long ago now I don't remember from where.

First, it appears to be an unlined mens light windbreaker in the style NitP describes above.
Second, I have no flamin' idea!

Bu-u-u-ut...
You might ask the person who posted this:
And I do hope it posts.



Also, please excuse coldangel.
He's just jealous because he once had a very special jacket too...
Only his was white, buttoned up the back, had the lo-o-o-ongest sleeves, and the two nice men in the white coats made him wear it until he calmed down...  sleep

I'm teasing y'Coldy:
Y'know I love ya'.  wink

I'll just... ooze back out under the door now...

I belive that Matt Groening pointed it out in the commentary for "Space Pilot 3000" (or maybe it was David X. Cohen). Actually, I think the Dean movie being referenced was Rebel Without A Causehmpf

I saw a pic recently (i searched for James Dean on Google a while back when I heard the jacket thing) And I beheld the almost real-life version of Fry. It was glorious and disturbing all at the same time.

I'll have to go with the majority on this and say Fry's jacket is a lot like James Dean's jacket.  Preferably the one from "Rebel Without a Cause".

After many of these posts I've come across a Jacket that's fairly similar, but you tell me if it looks like something that Fry (if he were real) would wear.

Even though Fry is based off of James Dean, I think the first one looks best.

@NastyInThePasty- There you go! That's the picture.

Those do look quite a bit like Fry's jacket! I'm not sure if you can get much closer with the second. The first really looks like a jacket, where the second kinda looks like the blazer-esque deal Fry's got going on.

Aww...

In that case, I trust this will give you a little feeling of security:  wink
I hope I picked the right size...


I wonder if it comes in red?


Apologies if this caused any horizontal scroll issues...

You're forgeting the nice men in white coats who had to "hug" him so he didn't move while the administered his sedative.

Instead of "sedatives", they called it "happy juice" and told him it "would make him feel like rainbows".

Actually, it was joy juice, and you wouldn't feel much of anything after ingesting consuming

So Lonesome Polecat and Hairless Joe made coldangel's sedatives (oops- "joy juice" )?

I felt bad when Fry was put in the asylum.  frown

I actually had to draw James Dean for a project over "American Pie" (the song. Oh how I disappoint you) quite some time ago. I also found it rather....awkward. I've always thought Fry was naturally a take off of Dean after I saw his picture.

@Fry away: both of the images you provided look very much like Fry's jacket. The first one works well and so does the second. I can't decide which one's better... I'm gonna go with the second because the first looks much like a work jacket.

Ah how this thread takes me back a few years to when I got that Lands' End jacket that was red....

That had to have been odd, feeling like you borrowed a jacket from a cartoon in the future.

Not really, because he's so sexy, there doesn't need to be further explanations! I choose to live my own fantasies of Fry being real in some form.  roll eyes   wink   laff

Seeing as how he hasn't been killed in every episode, I find it unlikely.

Not as pathetic as you may think. I'm willing to bet you that there is some alternate reality/universe where Fry actually exists. You know, infinite possibilities and all. However in this dimension I can't help you.

Through out the years, people have told me I look very similar to Fry, so ultimately decided that I'm going to become Fry. My buddy just ordered me a red jacket and it should come next week, I'm so excited! I don't know where he got it.

It is pretty great actually.

Anyways, anyone have any ideas for proper "Fry" shoes? I was thinking of just some classic Vans or something.
