SHINING, THE (1980) - Jack Torrance's (Jack Nicholson) Jacket
Jack Torrance's (Jack Nicholson) jacket from Stanley Kubrick's horror film The Shining. Torrance wore his jacket throughout much of the film, as he slowly descended into madness during the long winter spent with his family at the Overlook Hotel.

Based on Nicholson's own jacket - which was created by designer Margaret Howell - the jacket was ultimately chosen by Academy Award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero after Nicholson insisted it should be worn by his character. Howell was then contacted by the production and several were made for filming.

The custom-made blouson jacket is made from burgundy corduroy material with a brown, woollen elasticated waistband. Small red buttons run down the front of the jacket and are covered by a placket, with matching buttons on the waist, breast pockets and cuffs. The jacket displays light wear, including small marks on the collar and waistband. However, it remains in excellent condition.
