From the Bill Porter Collection

Elvis provided lightweight jackets to members of his last tour in 1977. Offered is one of these iconic “summer” Elvis Presley “TCB” tour jackets—this one was owned and worn by sound engineer Bill Porter. Bearing the appropriate “Apollo by Halloway” tag (which has faded from wear), the size 44 lightweight jacket maintains all of its original glory, with the large “Elvis IN CONCERT” patch on the front left breast and the gold “TCB” patch on the left sleeve. The nylon “summer” baseball-style jacket with front zip closure and red and white stripped ribbing at the waist, collar and cuffs was worn by Bill Porter on tour with Elvis, and a modern print of Bill wearing the jacket is included. Obviously a source of fond memories of Elvis, the jacket was tucked away and perfectly preserved after being lovingly worn by Bill. The jacket measures 27 inches (68.58 cm) in length and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The jacket is in excellent condition overall with a small area of pulling on the back and one small ink stain, the paint has slightly worn off the zipper toggle. An additional pull appears above the right pocket.
