Sign o' the Times stage outfit worn by Prince's saxophonist

Eric Leeds's costume worn on stage while performing with Prince during the 1987 Sign o' the Times tour, designed and made by Prince’s in-house wardrobe department. The outfit consists of a long black jacket with peach-colored pocket handkerchief, and a black tailored pants/vest 'one-piece' suit. Also includes two black button-down long sleeve shirts, one with a paisley patterned fabric that is marked with an "Eric" tag inside the collar. Two pairs of boots are included (one black and one white), which were custom-designed and made for Leeds by DiFabrizio of Los Angeles, who also custom-designed many of Prince’s boots. In overall fine condition, with general wear from use. Most notably, Leeds wore this particular outfit with the black boots for a special New Year's Eve concert at Paisley Park on December 31, 1987, at which Miles Davis was a guest artist. From the collection of musician/saxophonist Eric Leeds and accompanied by a letter of provenance.

Listen to Eric Leeds discuss this stage-worn outfit in his interview on the Rare and Remarkable! Podcast.
