This blog is dedicated to Miles Davis and his clothes, hence "Threads" (not to be confused with geek speak). As I am learning more about him and his unique style, not only in his music, but from his choice in garments, I am even more fasacinated with his life because I happen to own some of his clothing.
Here is the link you can check out to learn all about the story of how I happened upon his clothes.http://www.princeofwalesonline.com/miles_davis.html
It's been a very exciting week:
Thursday, February 23, 2006 I emailed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with my web site
Within ten minutes I had a response back and talked to someone at the RARHOF. We had to work on this quickly because the museum exhibit opens in two weeks. They requested the black jacket with the pin stripes which I agreed to put on loan for one year. This jacket seems to be the one that appears on his album Cookin' at the Plugged Nickel
. I must admit it was a difficult decision to part with this piece, but I wanted to be a part of history and share this jacket with his fans for his induction into the Hall.
On Friday, February 24, 2006, the jacket was all packed up and on its way to Cleveland.
