Jimmy’s Quadrophenia parka returns with Pretty Green

Pretty Green‚ Liam Gallagher’s clothing label is proud to announce its collaboration with the reissue of The Who’s ‘Quadrophenia - The Director’s cut’.

To mark the collaboration‚ Pretty Green has designed a limited edition parka made legendry by ‘Jimmy’ from the Quadrophenia album cover. The album tells the tale of a young mod and his struggle to come of age in the mid-1960s.

The parka has been an iconic image since the album was released and Pretty Green are excited to revive it. Only 100 are being made and are priced at £500. They will be exclusively available from the Pretty Green Carnaby Street store.

Liam Gallagher says, ‘As I’m a massive fan of The Who, and Quadrophenia being one of my favourite albums of all time, it’s an honour to be associated.’

Pretty Green are also showcasing Pete Townshend’s archives of notes, desk diaries, photos and original lyrics from the making of Quadrophenia alongside album artwork and outtakes in a never been seen before exhibition at our flagship store in London’s Carnaby Street. The exhibit opens to the public on Thursday 27th October, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close to Pete Townshend’s work and his inspirations behind the making of the seminal album.

The Quadrophenia (Super Deluxe Edition) is set to be released on 14th November.

Sounds fantastic and remember seeing the film at the cinema back in '79! Would there be any chance of getting an invite to the launch? Just asking because if Pete Townshend is going I could catch a lift off him, as he only lives up the road from me!

Scandalous price for an M51. When Liam started this he said he ain't in it to rip people off. £500 parka? Not a man of the people anymore is he

Ross Gamage Thursday 13 October, 2011 6:18 p.m.

£500 for a replica parka? You can buy an original unworn M51 for around £300...from the same place that I bought mine, and I believe Liam bought his. Having said that I guess you are paying the extra for the privilege of this being limited edition which no doubt will sell out fast

When are they on sale?

I've got a Lambretta replica of the exact same parka (for 125 notes I may add) from The Who's Lambretta range from a couple of years back. It's exactly the same as the album cover so I can't understand how this is going to be any different (apart from being PG branded of course).

What ya's all bitchin about.....if you dont like it dont buy it! No-ones holding a gun to ya heads are they

DOMINIC CHEVRIER Friday 14 October, 2011 8:16 p.m.

Limited edition is always cool and cost extra $$$ but PG should add more with the parka like : postcard,t-shirt,limited signed poster.met peter at the store and assure to have a picture taken with him,new Quadrophenia box set...Just some ideas...
