COSTUMES: GIANT - James Dean JEANS
Two words, James Dean. He is simply one of the greatest actors, and certainly most iconic. With only a few movies he managed to get inside the hearts of everyone and his spirit will live on forever.
His film Giant featured a great costume, with very specific jeans. In fact, the brand we wore was Lee’s with the size 30/32.
These pants were auctioned off in 2006 at Heritage auction, complete with a wardrobe test picture from the film Giant. (Which had James wearing these jeans). They sold for $35,850.
