Custom-made black vest wore extensively by Prince

Prince’s personally-owned and -worn custom black vest that the artist wore extensively during his career. The collared vest, which features its original “Arturo Paditz” label to the inner collar, features peaked lapels, two front pockets, a single clasp and hook to the midsection, and a colorful silk inner lining, which is also present to the front pocket interiors. In fine condition. The "Arturo Paditz" label is very likely Arturo Padilla, a master tailor in Los Angeles who Prince routinely commissioned for custom pieces.

From the Prince collection of Christopher Gaither and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
