Very Rare Vintage Apple Think Different Embroidered Jacket 1998. This is my prize Apple item. It is a heavy black twill unlined full zippered jacket with knit cuffs, waist and neck, slash side pockets.
On the back, in glorious full color embroidery, are large white letters that say Think Different, just below the original Apple logo. It wasn't long after this that Steve did away with the multi color logo and went with the one color red or white one. I got this at the World Wide Sales Conference in 1998.All of Apple's sales people from around the world congregated in one hotel in California. I put on my jacket and went to the outdoor banquet afterward.
As I walked toward the food, I came right up on Steve Jobs, five feet away. I thought this was my chance to shake his hand and thank him for doggedly fighting for the Macintosh, and for how much the Think Different campaign had meant to people I talked to everyday. But I noticed he was talking with my boss' boss' boss and that I stood to gain little and maybe lose much by interrupting. But having come into such a close radius with the reality warp field itself, the jacket took on an unreal quality and even now I have to keep it in a heavy bag to keep the strange blue glow from keeping me up at night.Okay I totally made up that last paragraph, but it does kind of illustrate how I feel about this jacket. This is just to tell you that since these were only given to Apple employees, and since all the sales people then could fit in one hotel, there were not many of these to begin with. This is a very rare find for you. So now you have the opportunity to own this historically distinct and unique bit of Apple history (with or without glow - your call) for yourself or for that super Apple freak on your Christmas list. The main reason it is basically unused is that it is too big for me, an XL. Our regional person who relayed our sizes always thought I was a bigger person.
Grab it before someone else gets luckier! Or I change my mind!
