Dean's Original Leather Jacket

Dean's leather jacket has become an iconic part of the character. Before it belonged to Dean Winchester, it belonged to his father John Winchester -- so there's no telling how old the leather is, how many battles the jacket has actually seen, though it is well-worn and beautiful. It was really Dean’s superhero signature look until its untimely demise.

  • In the 1.01 Pilot Dean picks the leather jacket up off of a pile of clothes that John left behind, after he showers in John's abandoned motel room. Thereafter, the jacket remains in Dean's possession.
  • Dean states in 3.10 Dream a Little Dream of Me that Dean's "favorite leather jacket" used to belong to his father. We never actually see John wear the leather jacket. He wears a similar jacket in the flashback in 1.18 Something Wicked, but it has different buttons and a horizontal seam across the breast that Dean's leather jacket does not have.[1]


In September 2010 new promo shots were being done for the upcoming Season 6. The shoot was in L.A. and the wardrobe was flown down from Vancouver a few days before, and was stolen somewhere along the way. Items taken included one of Castiel’s trench coats and Dean's Leather Jacket. Although wardrobe had replacements for Castiel's trench coat, Dean's Leather Jacket was sadly one of a kind that had been found in a thrift store.[2][3]. The jacket (or at least a facsimile) is seen in the flashback to a younger Dean at the beginning of 10.02 Reichenbach.

In the last two episodes of season 7, Dean is seen wearing a new leather jacket which he wears while killing Dick Roman and getting sent to Purgatory. He even hides the Leviathan-killing bone inside one of the pockets with the fake bone in the other. The jacket is seen in flashbacks to Dean's time in Purgatory in season 8—albeit much dirtier and roughed-up than when we first saw it at the end of season 7. Chronologically, the last time we see the jacket is in the first scene of 8.01 We Need to Talk About Kevin when Dean appears in a forest right after escaping from Purgatory.

Although this jacket was specially designed for Jensen, the producers ended up hating the colour on-screen and production was told to get rid of it - hence its disappearance after Dean escapes Purgatory.[4]
