This jacket is the recreation of the Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers’ jacket. Last year when we saw this picture, we thought it would be nice to have an actual jacket, and carefully started the recreation process. We considered this project as an opportunity to look back on Whitey’s lindy hoppers, and wanted to share our respect and passion with many dancers. Since we didn’t have access to the actual jacket, we worked with five black-and-white pictures and old clips of the jacket. After going through multiple drafts, the final jacket was completed.
From the comments of Ms. Norma Miller, and the Savoy 400 jacket, we think the original colors were green and yellow, so we made our jacket in the same color combination. The original jackets have same design for both men and women, but their pockets differ; thus the difference in pockets. (Women’s have slanted pockets while Men’s have straight pockets)
While they are not exactly same as the originals, we hope this jacket becomes a reminder of Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers. We thought it would be great to release this jacket for Frankie 100, and decided to donate a part of proceeds to the Frankie Foundation.
We will first accept the orders for the jacket on our page, make them, and have them available for pickup at Frankie 100. Separate shipping is not available at the moment. (The pickup will be available during check-in for the event. The details will be posted later.)
