Paul Weller – Owned and Worn Jacket
A grey houndstooth jacket made by the exclusive tailor Dormeuil, owned and worn by Jam and Style Council founder Paul Weller. This jacket was given by Weller to his former best friend and biographer, UK writer Paolo Hewitt. As Hewitt describes in his letter of provenance, he met Weller in 1975 in their mutual home town, Woking, Surrey and they became close friends. Hewitt wrote extensively about Weller and his bands, and the mod and punk scenes in Melody Maker and New Musical Express. Hewitt is the author of 16 books, including the authorized biography of The Jam, "A Beat Concerto;" "The Soul Stylists" (co-written with Paul Weller,) and "Paul Weller: The Changing Man." The jacket is wool, in a houndstooth pattern, and in beautiful condition. Weller gave it to Hewitt in the late 1990's, during a "clear out of his clothes." Included is a photograph of Weller in what appears to be this jacket, Hewitt's letter of provenance, and our lifetime guarantee of authenticity. A great opportunity to own a Paul Weller item with impeccable provenance.
