FOUND! PILOT EPISODE JACKET/ SHIRT!

Recommended Posts

COOPER&BURNETT
trademark of MV! I think the most watched episode to me is Brothers Keepers.And that shirt is so FIXED in my mind like the opening credits of MV and the music of the opening credits itself.If I am doing my job (LOL" data-date=" or my life ;)) and my mind needs a bit rest, my thoughts are quickly on their way to MV.and...THAT shirt is then surely included !!Like Crocketts">

CharlieGlide for his GREAT and so damn true words about our forum and the quote :THAT is simply the truth!And I am happy we all have such an easy way to take again and again this short needed trip into VICE LAND!And you Coop....You are opening us the door to it !!! THANKS FOR THAT !!!Hmmmm....BTW....I am working on....to come our enviable DJAngel closer and closer.OH - I will miss forever all these personal meetings she could have with Mr. Johnson himself -LOL - but believe me....I DO MY VERY BEST !!!!! :):p :p

Such a beautifully composed, and written letter! Wow!I agree, I think this shirt is a MIAMI VICE trademark. I can't think of any other piece of clothes from vice that would be more classic, other than the opening scene with his white suit and blue shirt, but.....most white suits, jackets, and pants kind of look alike....this is VERY distinctive. Only seen in one episode, where most of the clothes showed up in different episodes, that also makes it a rarity.I had to wear the BERNAY'S CAFE shirt with the Vice shirt for two reasons. 1. both t-shirts are black under the Vice shirt, and, 2. The Vice shirt was worn during the BERNAY'S CAFE scene!! I always really, REALLY look forward to your kind replies bluepearl. They are soooo fun to read! I read them over, and over again.THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!Eingefügtes Bild

This is exactly why I come to this site. To see stuff like C&B's shirt after days like today. Let me explain...I left this morning to take my wife for her bi-weekly chemo treatment. Went to the hospital to get it done and there's a problem with the port where the nurses 'infuse' the chemo and a drug called avastin. All of them are ass kickers. So' date=' we have to get her x-ray'd to see if the port is threatening her health. It looks like it's okay but we have to back again to have it checked. This means her next trip back to the hospital in two weeks will include four appointments in one day.And this is before the treatment even begins. So we're behind a couple hours by now and the treatment takes about four hours. I'm looking at driving her home during rush hour L.A. traffic and it's our first real heat wave of the summer. I mean, you can feel the traffic grinding on your teeth before you even leave the parking lot. Long story short, I got home after about a 10 hour day at the hospital. Gave my wife her meds and some food and she went to bed. I just put on the episode "Honor Among Thieves" and am mentally checking out...it's 'my' time. And of course, I go to this site, and here's C&B's shirt. The same one used in what I think is the best moment of television ever: the scene from the pilot where Crockett and Tubbs are driving to "In the Air Tonight."And for a moment, my problems don't exist. I am in Vice Land. Transported to not just where I want to be, but where I NEED to be.Alot to dump on you good people, but, to paraphrase Lt. Todo, this shirt of Crockett? Well, in English, it means everything.[/quote']Thanks for your post, CharlieGlide. Always love reading them.What you say about this site and Miami Vice is so true, for myself also.:clap::thumbsup:Vice land is the best. Problems fade for a few hours, anyway. Also takes me back to a better time, for me anyway.:cool:Prays and thoughts are with you and your wife.

And for a moment' date=' my problems don't exist. I am in Vice Land. Transported to not just where I want to be, but where I NEED to be.[/quote']Not to take away from your situation, but I've been doing this as well for the past year on Friday nights. My fiance' is currently "away" and will be for another year and a half. It's been real hard getting through some stuff, but when this is over, we'll be together and can pick up our life together where we left off... So yeah, I would agree that seeing coop's latest aquisition and his ever-growing collection does make things seem not so bad...

FOUND! AT LONG LAST!! Here's Crockett's shirt / jacket he wore in the Pilot episode of MIAMI VICE! I started thinking I would never locate it (in the back of my mind' date=' I knew I would someday).It's actually a shirt, but Crockett wore it like a jacket. This is one of the very few times Crockett ever did this. He was seen doing it again in GIVE A LITTLE, TAKE A LITTLE, at the end of the episode when he hugs Gina after she kills the Master Pimp, Ramirez. This BROTHERS KEEPER / Pilot episode shirt was only seen in this episode, and never appeared again in any other MIAMI VICE episodes. This is a rare one![/size']This is one of the earliest known examples of clothing the chracter Sonny Crockett ever wore.
Holly cow, so you ment this ONE, I thought you ment the salmon colored one he wore at the beach with tubbs mixed in with the light blue undershirt that he wore in out where the busses dont run with a black T under it.kind of funny actually I started doing the same thing with an old beaten up button up shirt too with a T under it about a month ago. looks more like the thing Hickok45 wears in his vids over a white T shirt though not the Crockett pilot shirt sadly because of the oversized two front pockets that give it a more utlitarian look. although oddly its suede and like in the same shade of blue as Vercettis Soiree outfit so I reckon its atleast half vice lol.anyways back ontopic I guess this explains why I initially thought it was in a sort of purplish blue tint when I first saw the pilot, I thought I was going nuts but it was in that shade after all lol

That site can get snobby when it comes to allowing links' date=' so that may be the problem. I did notice that someone in the comments section wrote something like "Sonny Burnett lives."[/quote']Yeah, I saw that! :):clap:

That is SUPER find Coop' date='I'm very glad for you and that is such a good feeling to see the shirt from Pilot episode in such a closeup:thumbsup:as always Coop your are the greatest Vice collector in the world with your unique,rare and so AWESOME Vice items:clap:[/quote']I think it's great to see this shirt up close and personal. I tried to take shots of it to show it off properly. I figured that members here would like to see what it really looks like up close, and to see the details, such as buttons, and a chest pocket! It's fun when you learn something new about something you saw on a hit TV show for many years, ....and now have the real inside details of what it really is like!

lol indeed, I'm certain that either Sonny, Jurrasic, brian or probably even camera wouldnt mind lol, The Daytona returns to Miami: 2012!but I've been thinking personally I should start to save up to get out of my state instead of aquiring one first (I dont even have a clean garage to store it in away from the winters and I KNOW I have mice in mine!) as the more I think about it this state is anti everything I like it seems and is getting that way more and more.plus well I'm about to drop 500 on a new computer, my old one died yesterday like an hour after seeing this thread (atleast it had a hell of a final act huh?!) but thankfully the harddrive is intact, as I'm talking to you on a friends computer.

Once again Coop comes through! The items you find always manage to (as Sonny would say) keep the natives restless! It's also cool to see these things actually being worn where we get to see the finer details such as that cool hidden pocket! Now, if the model only had a head! ;)Very cool! Keep 'em coming! :thumbsup:

It's the most expensive State in the Union in which to Live. We pay more for Gas, Taxes then anyone else. Also, the nutjob Mayor (Governor Jerry (moonbeam) Brown) is asking the State voters to vote "yes" on RAISING our taxes to pay the State out of debt! (The Bush tax cuts end, and the Health Care law (which was ruled a tax) will soon come into effect, making it the highest single Government tax increase in the World.) Don't move to California!(I went on a long rant, but deleted all but the above. I just had to get it off my chest, and this is not the thread for that)I too want a Daytona, but I don't need any more cars now. Four is enough for me at the moment, but I'll get one someday.Hope you get a new computer, and hope all goes well Kavinsky! :thumbsup:
