Fashion and Co in Movies and TV ! I spot the little items that create the big story in movies and unveil the little stories they tell! AskMe

Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) is the good-looking 16-year-old intellectual and open-minded bookworm from a little town called Gatlin in South Carolina. His aim is to escape from his small-town existence, and he dreams of leaving the introspective Gatlin for the experience of college while listening to Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” in his car.

He is a tough schoolboy and a poetic rebel, who jumps fences, dresses in jeans, sneakers, and tight cotton t-shirts or undershirts which show his muscles, and wears brown Ray-Ban horn eyeglasses at home while drawing pictures and reading beatnik literature.

One of his remarkable fashion items is the blue, vintage, corduroy-collar denim jacket by legendary US jeans brand Lee, whichhe wears in the snow and rainstorm scenes with Lena (Alice Englert). This jacket model originates from the 1970s and is called “Stormrider.”

The vintage style and name of the model describes perfectly his down-to-earth, retro character who has to face and master his first adventures against the witchcraft of Lena’s supernatural family.

I don’t know for sure if movie director Richard LaGravenese or costume designer Jeffrey Kurland used this “Stromrider” jacket model as a symbol of Ethan’s metaphorical ride through the storm to rescue his love Lena, but I think it’s an interesting assumption.
