    Description

    Historic "The Rat Pack" tuxedo ensemble: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. Exceptional suite of (5) tuxedo ensembles representing the principal members of the Las Vegas "Rat Pack", namely Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. Debbie Reynolds was very close friends with the members of the Rat Pack and she directly obtained these personally-worn tuxedos from each of them; the only exception being the Lawford ensemble - a tailcoat and matching pants from his screen role in Mrs. Parkington - obtained at the famous MGM auction. Each of the other four ensembles consists of tuxedo jacket and pants, and white shirt (except Davis' which is dark pink). Some of the ensembles include accessories like vests, cufflinks, bowtie, etc. Martin, Davis, Sinatra and Bishop groupings include shoes (Bishop has signed both soles). Lawford's tail-suit contains original MGM labels marked for him; all four other ensembles contain custom tailoring or alteration tags in jackets and pants specific to each previous owner, as well as unique markings or monograms on shirts. A prized grouping from Ms. Reynolds' collection, representing a cornerstone of her Las Vegas museum. Occasional signs of age or wear, though overall entire suite rates fine.
