I've still got some 70s bell-bottom jeans (we called them flares). I loved them! Sadly, i can't squeeze into them these days.

Shortly before his death, Elvis gave the coat to Ginger's brother Mike.

It has changed hands several times since and is now going under the hammer at auctioneers Henry Aldridge & Son, of Devizes, Wiltshire.

Went for £128,000 then.

If the 'letter of authenticity' is signed by Dick Grob, you'll need to be doubly suspicious...

I wish I'd kept some of my pre 1977 clothes and I'm sure I could have got a letter of authenticity that Elvis gave it to somebody.

Colin, got any old socks?

Err............... well, yes........... but I'm still wearing them...

I could provide a 'letter of authenticity' stating that I was wearing them when I bought 'Heartbreak Hotel' in 1956...

Maybe not 'clothes' exactly, but still interesting:

Anyone got a spare million dollars kicking about ?
