Win this jacket! 200 tickets for sale - Total profits to Cancer Research fundraising - READ CAREFULLY NOTES! -

10.00

If you’re feeling lucky it could be yours for just £10!

Here's a chance to win this unique, one-off freehand chainstitched embroidered Levis Vintage Clothing Type 2, size 42 raw denim jacket. I designed and embroidered its back patch to be the latest Dice Magazine cover for issue 83. 

The jacket was kindly donated by Levis Vintage Clothing and the final goal is for us to raffle this and raise money for cancer research, and here we are! 

  • ////// 19 April 2019 update ////// The shop wouldn’t allow zero shipping costs, so you will purchase a £10 ticket and automatically have £2.50 as shipping, so a total of £12.50. Please note that I will refund you with shipping costs shortly after your purchase. Sorry about this!

Rules of this raffle:

  • 200 ONLY tickets for sale, aiming to raise £2000 towards cancer research!

  • Each ticket is just £10. 

  • You can buy more than one ticket in one transaction.

  • If your ticket didn’t win, rest assured your money will only go to charity.

  • There is no time deadline, just after selling 200 tickets, the winner will be picked! So sharing it’s a great opportunity to reach the number quickly!

Selecting the winner:

Once all the tickets are sold, I will do a live streaming video on instagram at my page @g_miglietta.  Here you will see the winner of the raffle being randomly selected in live streaming (also available to replay if you missed it!). I will then personally get in touch and let the winner know via email.


Will anybody else earn any money from this?

Absolutely zero! All funds will go towards this cancer research fundraising campaign https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fuckcancerletsride.

The story behind this jacket:

After a conversation with Dean Micetitch, Co-Founder of Dice Magazine, we came up with the idea of making an embroidered jacket for the cover of issue 83. I designed and embroidered a back patch for the jacket on a freehand machine, using the same method as in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Levis Vintage Clothing kindly donated this beautiful Type 2, 1953, raw denim jacket especially for us to create something unique. The idea behind this cover was to end with the sale of the jacket, raising funds towards charity. We are aiming to raise money towards a cancer research fundraising campaign that me and my brothers and sisters in the Black Widows, started in the name of Matt Davis, Co-Founder of Dice Magazine, who sadly passed away of cancer. The charity can be found online at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fuckcancerletsride. With the help of the wonderful people around the world we have previously raised more than $6500. 

Jacket concept: 

My early years of rigid catholic upbringing mixed with a deep southern Italian superstition has definitely influenced the jacket design. 

The black cat here represents independence and power. The snake means danger and uncertainties. In the Italian popular culture and superstition, the 83 means being alone and it’s generally associated with something unpredictable.

I chose the location behind the photography to be as isolated and detached from reality as possible. Me and Peter Long, the great photographer behind this cover, went 69 feet under the Thames river in London. Pete, placed his kit, lights and orange filters, making sure to keep things as real as possible, keeping retouching to a minimum. He shot this cover in medium format, that gives an unreal level of details, and adds just a touch of menace! 

We have all lost many of our family members, friends and loved ones to cancer. I created the narrative behind this cover to send a strong message to each and everyone involved in a similar path. Even in the most lonesome and discouraging moments of the fight resilience is the key - Nothing should bring you down! Keep your head up.
