FROM A RECENT CUSTOMER:
I just recieved the poncho, and it is absolutely breath taking!!! I have other replicas but none of them come even close to this one.
We have spent years in the making of an exact duplicate of the poncho Clint Eastwood wore in the Spaghetti Western Trilogy ( A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY). Although, over the years, a few have appeared on the market that appeared to be OK, they were ultimately not accurate and too expensive.
One outstanding poncho, currently being marketed is nice enough but both retails at $600 and is the wrong color. Our Eastwood Poncho is the exact color of the original which was Olive Green not Brown. (This is a common mistake as most old '60's photos tend to turn reddish. See the new DVD releases.) For proof that the original is green see the link below and hear it in Clint's own words.
I was fortunate enough to actually see the original poncho once in Carmel when Clint loaned it to a friend to display in his Mexican resturant for a while. Needless to say, I took several mental notes. We got to examine the poncho again on July 26, 2005 at the Pre-Premiere party for the ONCE UPON A TIME IN ITALY exhibit at the AUTRY NATIONAL CENTER. I took several photos. See the link above.
Clint stated that he bought a poncho at Western Costume in Hollywood as he thought "Joe" or THE MAN WITH NO NAME from "A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS" would wear one (his own idea) but Sergio Leone found the "green one" in Spain and liked it better. Eastwood never washed or cleaned it during the making of all three films which give the outer poncho color a more olive color!
Our poncho is 100% Wool and has all of the accurate designs machine stitched into the blankets so they are visable on both sides of the poncho. This was done with Eastwood's original....the designs are NOT woven! These ponchos require over 20 solid hours of work to get each completed. They are manufactured to last a lifetime!
Our Extra Large size (shown at left on 6'-4" model) is 53"wide x 32" long (each side). We also make a Large at 51" wide x 30" long for the same price.
