Steve McQueen screen worn denim jeans The Sand Pebbles

21 Jan

McQueen’s screen worn denim jeans worn in the 1966 film The Sand Pebbles in his role as Machinist’s Mate 1st Class Jake Holman. Pants feature a button-up front, four pockets and a Western Costume Company label sewn into the inside of the waistband with McQueen’s name typed on the second line and “2788-1,” typed on the first line. Waistband also bears a Western Costume stamp on the waistband and is stamped “51.” The jeans can be seen in several scenes as he worked in the engine room and walking on deck. These comprised part of his ‘work’ uniform and were matched up with a blue shirt. In fine condition. So taxing was the seven months filming of the movie that McQueen did not do any other film work for almost a year. The film’s director Robert Wise, recounted how obsessive McQueen was about every little detail of the film, including his wardrobe, having just the right aged look. RR Auction COA.
