    Description

    Elvis Presley Related - J. D. Sumner's Vintage Stetson Hat (1960s). During the late 1960s and early 1970s, this beaver and wool cowboy hat was a personal favorite of J. D. Sumner, the iconic bass singer and boss of the famed Stamps Quartet, Elvis Presley's handpicked backup vocal group, who were with Elvis from 1971 until his untimely death in 1977. Iconic also describes this Stetson, one of the most sought-after Western hats of the era, distinguished by its decorative woven band and bronze feathers. It's magnificent attire even without the provenance, but with its association, it's a real treasure. From the J. D. Sumner Archives. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Shirley Sumner Enoch.
