This jacket was worn by the character “Jake Pierson,” portrayed by Willie Nelson, in the classic television series, “Miami Vice.” The tailored “Neiman Marcus” brand jacket is made of a mint green slubbed silk. Mr. Nelson can be seen wearing the jacket in “El Viejo” (Season 3, Episode 7). In this particular episode, he plays a cantankerous old man who Crockett (Don Johnson) and Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) suspects as being in business with a murderous Bolivian drug dealer. Nelson wears the jacket throughout much of the episode as it is revealed to Crockett and Tubbs that he is really an ex-Texas Ranger looking to shut down the drug dealer’s business.  The jacket can also be seen worn in “Hard Knocks (Season 5, Episode 8) by Ismael Carlo, as the character “Chi-Chi”. The jacket is in distressed vintage condition with some holes and scuffing due to age and use on production.  Accompanied by a letter of authenticity.
