Blue jeans owned and worn by cult hero Jack Kerouac. Kerouac was the first rock 'n' roll star, even before Elvis first swivelled his pelvis on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1956, Kerouac was trailing the width and length of the country in search of personal epiphany, strung out on Charlie Parker jazz and Benzedrine. These times were immortalised in the beat classic 'On The Road'. The novel reportedly sold a million pairs of jeans as the misunderstood generation began to rebel against tradition and authority and adopted the jean as their uniform. Kerouac was a visionary, mystic, proto-punk, madman, angel, romantic drunk; a weaver of dreams and imagination, an inspiration for a generation. These were his jeans, how cool is that. Blue jeans with zip fly, 101 top button, Wards Power House 101 label stitched to front pocket, half of rear leather label missing otherwise in very good condition. Jeans accompanied by certificate of authenticity from John Sampas of the Kerouac estate.
