Rare Apple Cafe coat from the abandoned Media Hub project
It is a lined and substantial black Hilton brand jacket in a size Large made in Hong Kong of 100% cotton. There is a large embroidered Apple Cafe global logo on back and a small embroidered Apple rainbow logo on the front. It has a zipper front with snaps at top and bottom and 5 pockets on the front plus one zipper pocket in the lining and cinch pull-strings at the waist. It was a very limited edition coat for a small group of designers and promoters of the '96 Apple Cafe concept. The Cafe project was shelved in '97 as Steve Jobs returned to Apple and initiated a study for the stand alone 'store within a store' concept in Japan instead.
Here is a Wayback Machine snapshot of the original Welcome to Apple Cafe! at the Applecafe.com 'coming soon' webpage. This unique piece of Apple history is priced at $275 plus insured postage at cost. The coat weighs about 3 lbs. boxed. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
update: an identical size XL in unworn condition is also available it is priced at $325
