Replica Michael Jackson jackets launched

Michael Jackson's brothers and his eldest son Prince have joined forces to release 1,000 replicas of the late singer's two most famous jackets.

Prince, 14, along with the King of Pop's siblings Marlon, Tito and Jackie have all signed copies of the red coat Jackson wore for his Beat It video and the iconic red and black Thriller jacket as part of the J5 memorabilia collection.

The limited edition items, which went on sale on Amazon.com on Thursday (10Nov11), are going for $2,350 each and were created in collaboration with designer Marc Laurent.

Speaking at the signing at the end of October (11), Prince told CNN the jackets will introduce his father's style "to a new generation" and he would consider wearing them himself to "dress up parties."

Each jacket has been cut to match Jackson's measurements, while fans who purchase one of the coats will receive a certificate of authenticity, along with an embroidered Michael Jackson signature.
