Steve McQueens signature screen-used "Frank Bullitt" hero tweed sports jacket worn in Bullitt.

Steve McQueen’s signature screen-used “Frank Bullitt” hero tweed sports jacket worn in Bullitt. (Warner Bros., 1968) This brown herringbone tweed jacket, with suede elbow patches, was custom made for Hollywood legend Steve McQueen and worn in arguably his greatest film role — as all guts, no glory, San Francisco Police Lieutenant “Frank Bullitt”. Not only was this jacket worn in what is consistently voted as the best car chase sequence in film history — pitting “Bullitt’s” “Highland Green” 1968 Mustang GT 390 against the bad guy’s ’68 Dodge Charger — McQueen wore this jacket throughout the second half of the film. McQueen wears this distinctive jacket while on the hitman’s trail, the iconic car chase, while riding with Jacqueline Bisset in her yellow Porsche cabriolet in San Mateo, the police station, Coroner’s office and the climactic chase on foot at San Francisco International Airport where “Bullitt” finally kills the mobster and places this jacket over the dead body. The jacket was designed specifically without the charcoal-gray satin lining in the back, below the shoulder blades, to be cooler for McQueen to wear while filming in the car. In close-ups, the distinct herringbone patterns on the seams and edges of the lapels precisely screen match, serving as a fingerprint. In fine production used condition. This sports jacket is, without question, the premier 20th century male cinematic wardrobe piece, worn by star and “King of Cool” pop culture icon Steve McQueen in his best-remembered role. The motorsport tie-in and appeal is undeniable. This historic costume piece was exhibited at the Warner Bros. Studio Museum. This item is fully authenticated by the seller and a letter of authenticity will be included with the lot. Cooler than a fridge loaded with ice cubes at the North Pole. Estimated Price:$600,000 – $800,000 USD
