Don’t know what you lot are thinking of, but we’re talking of course about his black leather La Rocka ‘pirate’ jacket worn by Mr Sheen in the seminal 1986 John Hughes high school truancy flick ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’.
Hughes’ love letter to Chicago stars Matthew Broderick as the truant on the mother of all sick days. Sheen is only a small part but his wardrobe choice perhaps shows Hughes was fond of more than just British pop music.
Great soundtrack, great duds, if only every day off could be like this. “Stay at school kids!”
