    Description

    B.B. King Jacket Worn at the Grand Rex, July 9, 2012, Paris, France. A flamboyant jacket, black with purple and gold thread accents which would have given off a spectacular iridescent glow under stage lights. The custom, hand-tailored jacket has black silk lapels, is lined in silk, with single-button front and bears the tailor label of E. House of Kowloon [Hong Kong]. "Made Specially for B.B. King / King of the Blues" embroidered in silver thread above the inside right pocket and B.B.'s trademarked "King of the Blues Worldwide" logo machine-embroidered below. The jacket measures 22" from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, 32.5" from the collar to the bottom hem, with 24" long sleeves. Complete with a B.B. King "Lucille" guitar pin on the lapel. Also comes with three 8" x 10" photos of B.B. in the jacket playing on stage. Excellent condition.

    Provenance: From Myron Johnson, B. B. King's Personal Assistant and Tour Manager.
