This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 8/27/2020

Starting in the late 1960s, Elvis became quite enamored with scarves as part of his personal wardrobe, and scarves eventually became a central part of his concert wardrobe as well. He used them to dab his forehead during shows and would frequently toss them to audience members. At home, Elvis would wear scarves on his ranch simply to accessorize his fashionable attire and to curb perspiration. Offered is a personal scarf, printed “Jacqmar London” in white in the lower left corner, that is dark blue with hand-stitched edges. The scarf comes with a handwritten letter from Patsy Presley to noted collector Tom Salva that states:

Dear Tom, Enclosed please find navy neck scarf belonging to Elvis - One of the scarves he wore with his casual attire. He wore these scarves during the late 60’s - I really don’t know if there is a picture of Elvis wearing this scarf, but if there is, I know you will find it. Ha! Enclosed, also, is the picture of Elvis & his Mother. It's a very good picture - Hope you will enjoy it. Thanks, Patsy.

The English brand Jacqmar was founded in the 1930s supplying silks to haute couture houses. After recognizing that the remnants could be used to create scarves, the company made a name for itself in this market from the 1950s through the ’70s. This Jacqmar London brand blue scarf measures 23 1/4 by 23 1/4 inches and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The scarf presents with moderate to heavy wear and staining. Excellent condition.

Late 1960s Elvis Presley Owned “Jacqmar” Blue Neck Scarf from His Personal Wardrobe - Gifted to His Cousin Patsy Presley
