    Jimi Hendrix Owned and Worn Vest. This striking turquoise suede vest comes from the personal wardrobe of the legendary guitar genius, who would often wear it with a matching pair of pants. Hendrix left it behind at the home of a close friend's girlfriend, who later gave it as a gift to a neighbor, noted Nashville musician and producer Aubrey Shuler, who as a young musician would wear the vest on occasion before eventually consigning it to careful storage. The years have been good to it; in Fine to Very Fine condition, the vest displays some soiling and a little wear to the inside edges of the suede, but is in otherwise very sturdy condition with vibrant color, no glaring flaws, and a black silk lining that verges on pristine. Included with the vest is a color snapshot of Hendrix with friends, including the woman who received the vest, and a copy of the 2003 book Jimi Hendrix: The Lyrics by Janie L. Hendrix, which features a photo of Jimi in the matching pants. An amazing rare Rock and Roll artifact. Accompanied by letters of authenticity.
