Members Only Jackets
Because no Kleenex-thin jacket would be complete without epaulets. Because, as the ad told us, “When you put it on, something happens.” Because you needed to be able to choose from maroon, teal, black, grey, sky blue, or even (oh yes) leather.
For all those reasons and more… that, my friends, that is why you were nothing without a Members Only jacket.
There’s no real explaining why they were such a hit… maybe it was the elastic waist, maybe it was the lapel pocket, or maybe (just maybe) it was those handy snaps at the neck to make sure you were really buttoned-up.
Their hipness spanned all demographics– from teens to dads. And, yes, even the ladies could get in on the action, too.
And even though we never found out what we were members of (other than the cool kids club) , it didn’t matter. All we cared about was that our jackets were awesome… to the max.
