Mission ImBossible

Go check out MI:4 and you’ll notice a poly/cotton cameo by Bruce Springsteen. After aborting a mission inside the Kremlin Ethan Hunt sheds his disguise as a high ranking Russian official into a nerdy American tourist complete with glasses, a map and this Born in the USA tour tee.

But is it real or a repro commissioned for the flick? We’re definitely familiar with the design. And it has some true vintage qualities- ie the design fade and a stretched neck as if the tee had taken a pounding over the years. But like the world of Mission Impossible nothing in film making is what it seems.

There’s no reason Cruise couldn’t fit into a genuine vintage t-shirt – he’s not exactly Arnold Schwarzenegger sized. But some stars have an aversion to wearing used clothing – Peter Fonda reportedly refused to wear vintage during the height of his career forcing costume designers to reproduce his clothes. Boo!

Check out what true vintage Bruce Springsteen Tees are available on Defunkd!
