Clash bassist Paul Simonon designed leather jackets for Sailor Jerry
by Wyatt Marshall
In what’s been a busy week for leather jacket action, we’ve unearthed another super-limited leather jacket linked to The Clash, this one designed by the band’s bassist Paul Simonon — who is actually quite the painter — for Sailor Jerry. For $2300, you can have one of 50 Lewis Leathers “Limited-As-Hell Edition Leather Jackets” featuring Simonon’s interpretation of Norman Collins’ (Sailor Jerry) original skull and crossbones design from the ’50s. You can read more about Simonon’s collaboration with Sailor Jerry at The Independent, and purchase one here if you can afford it.
Paul Simonon and Mick Jones recently teamed up with Sailor Jerry for a Q&A event in support of The Clash’s new greatest hits compilation, Hits Back, and the enormous forthcoming Clash complete re-mastered box set.
