Description
The Beatles - original Angels and Bermans tailored duplicate of Ringo's Sgt. Peppers military jacket. To quote Paul in The Beatles Anthology: For our outfits we went to Berman's, the theatrical costumiers, and ordered up the wildest things, based on old military tunics. That's where they sent you if you were making a film: 'Go down to Berman's and get your soldier suits'. They had books there that showed you what was available. Did we want Edwardian or Crimean? We just chose oddball things from everywhere and put them together. We all chose our own colours and our own materials. 'You can't have that, he's having it 'We went for bright psychedelic colours, a bit like the fluorescent socks you used get in the fifties (they came in very pink, very turquoise or very yellow. ) At the back of our minds I think the plan was to have garish uniforms which would actually go against the idea of uniform. . The pink satin costume comprising trousers, hat and military-style jacket with brass buttons, gilt and brocade detail and gold fringed epaulettes, labeled in black ballpoint pen Starkey 4. A rare opportunity to own a suit identical to Ringo's, designed and made by same costumiers of the originals. No Reserve.
