    Jimi Hendrix Owned and Worn Long Multi-Colored Paisley and Flower Design Velvet Vest with Signed Letter of Authenticity from Al Hendrix. This stunning vest just screams "late 1960s hippie fashion" of which Hendrix was an icon. The black velvet vest is covered front and back with orange, black, and white thread designs many of which are inset with various colors of velvet. No tagging, one inside pocket, lined in grey, and the closure is accomplished with four dangling cloth balls into loops of orange thread. From the top of the neck at back to the hem is 33.5". The 1991-dated signed typed letter from Hendrix's father reads, in full: "This long velvet vest with different shaped design on the front and the back in various colors and orange trim thread with 5 cloth loops and cloth balls down the front belonged to my son Jimi Hendrix. [signed] Al Hendrix". A great chance to own a piece of clothing worn by the world's greatest guitarist. The vest shows signs of light wear and is in Excellent condition.

    Also included is a signed letter from Tom Hulett on Concerts West, Inc. letterhead. It reads: "I hereby certify that this long velvet vest with a multi color paisley design motif was owned and worn by Jimi Hendrix. My company Concerts West managed all bookings for Jimi's concerts, travel arrangements and concert security.
