JFK’s monogrammed silk Sulka scarf
Description                           Estimate: $10,000+          

Kennedy’s personally-owned and -worn luxurious white silk scarf with black-and-white fringed edges, measuring 48″ long and 15.25″ wide, made by A. Sulka & Company, with the monogram “JKF” intricately cut and embroidered on one end. The Sulka label is sewn on an inside corner. In fine condition, with a few light stains. Originates from the Robert L. White Collection, Guernsey’s, 1998.

John F. Kennedy wore this handsome men’s evening scarf early in his congressional career before marrying the equally fashionable Jacqueline Bouvier. He would have sported this elegant accouterment to his dress coat on blustery days at home in New England or brisk evenings in the nation’s capital. Kennedy’s affinity for Sulka products was well-known, and he owned many of their men’s accessories, including scarves and neckties. JFK’s status as an American fashion icon make pieces worn by him incredibly desirable. As a personally-monogrammed wardrobe element of extraordinary quality—and originating from the world-renowned Kennedy collection of Robert L. White—this silk scarf is a quintessential piece of presidential history.
