    Description

    Elvis Owned and Worn Red Velvet Jacket. Elvis wore it in the '60s, but in 1968 Vernon and Dee Presley gave this gorgeous red velvet jacket to their friends C.W. Bradley and his wife Roberta. Bradley, the officiating minister at Elvis' funeral service, kept the jacket in his family for close to 40 years, and now in this special anniversary year of the King's death, the family has decided to share the jacket with a collector. Fully lined in black satin, the jacket is lush red velvet with black shawl collar, cuffs and accents. 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 at a 2005 reunion. Retaining its original tight seams, the jacket is in Very Fine condition considering its age, with only minor fading, a few small stains, and a few pulls on cuff material.
