1960s, labelled Levi's®, collar with light brown leather facing, two breast pockets and front with press-stud fasteners, with statement of provenance
The statement is by Tony Bramwell, who worked for Brian Epstein and The Beatles throughout the 60s. The Beatles met Bob Dylan several times in London in May 1966, whilst he stayed at the Mayfair Hotel in Jermyn Street. Tony records that Dylan was wearing this jacket, which John admired and, a few days later, the jacket was delivered to the Beatles' office for John. It turned out to be somewhat on the small side for John so it was passed to Tony, who subsequently wore it for many years.
