This is the costume I wanted to do but didnt have time to finish. I did a ton of research. Apparently he is wearing a Members Only Jacket. His jacket is special that it doesn't have the members only logo under the top left pocket. It also has a snap collar configuration that I have not been able to find anywhere. Someone mentioned the collar type might be what they call "stand collar" or perhaps even "Clinton collar". I didn't dig too far into those leads because I was out of time.

Here is the closest match I found. Note that they don't have the Members only logo under the pocket

The pants are just dark blue jeans. It looks like he is wearing black boots, not really cowboy, but not quite square toe either. A low, black turtle neck is the last piece. I was thinking about getting a "greaser" wig and trimming it to his style.

Arnie's red jacket is probably a salute to James Dean, a cool-car driver in Rebel Without a Cause. Nice. Looking at the picture before reading the post, I guessed that it's Members Only. John Carpenter wonderfully handled Arnie's transformation to '50s cool; very subtle things like that, using circa-1983 things. (But it's set in 1978!) Arnie didn't suddenly turn into a Fonzie or Sha Na Na clone. Of course he's really turning into Roland LeBay, maybe the young version of him.

It was a screen shot of the movie as Arnie is walking up to a destroyed Christine.
