    Johnny Cash's Black Suit by Nudie Cohn. A simple, tasteful black two-piece custom made by legendary tailor Nudie Cohn for "The Man in Black" himself, Johnny Cash. The lining bears Nudie's distinctive label, as well as a second label bearing Cash's name and the date "6-21-74". In Excellent condition.

    This suit was purchased directly from the Carter family at the "House of Cash" in 1978 and is accompanied by photographs of it being purchased; at the time the current owner bought this suit, he was told that it was worn by Cash in a then-recent performance which would have been around 1977-1978.

    In the picture of a man and woman sitting at a table, that is Anita Carter and Johnny Cash's guitarist.
