Designing these jackets fulfilled a few different design desires.
First and foremost, making something useful out of something forgotten seemed like a thing Jett Rink would do. From a design perspective, quilts were an obvious choice. I can just picture him grabbing an old quilt from the bunkhouse (without asking, of course) and fashioning it into a jacket, tied closed because who has the time for buttons? (Fun fact: the Warner Bros. costume vest Jett wore, actually did have make-shift ties in place of missing buttons.) Jett was resourceful and the type to “make do”, which is what we used to call it before “up-cycling” was a thing.
