    Elvis Owned and Worn Japanese Lounging Jacket. A gift from Vernon and Dee Presley to C.W. Bradley and family, this Japanese lounging jacket was worn by Elvis in the '60s, and is a handsome example of the King's subdued side. Japanese gardens, pagodas, trees and horsemen grace the intricately designed exterior, all in gold and silver stitching on a black silk blend background. The silk lapels, cuffs and top flaps of the pockets are cinnamon colored with gold piping. Though the jacket is missing its sash belt, it is in Very Fine condition and must have been a favorite of Elvis' as it has signs of wear and perspiration staining along inner collar and underarm areas. There is also a slight tear along the right pocket flap seam; Elvis more than likely favored this pocket, as he was right-handed. A label along the inner collar reads "Made in Japan" and another one beneath signifies it as a men's size Large. Accompanying the lot is an affidavit from Dee Presley, dated 2006, indicating that she saw Elvis wear the jacket and that she and Vernon gave the jacket to the Bradley family in 1968. Also included is a copied photograph of Dee Presley, with C.W. Bradley, holding the jacket in 2005.
