#82 - Colonel Harland Sanders Estimate: $5,000+

Iconic two-piece suit worn by the KFC colonel

Colonel Harland Sanders’s personally-owned and -worn white two-piece suit made by Merton Chesher of Toronto, consisting of a light fabric double-breasted dress jacket and matching pleated trousers, both of which feature manufacturer tags identifying them as belonging to the Kentucky Fried Chicken founder. The jacket tag is sewn into the inner right breast pocket and reads: “Name: Col H Sanders 5271L, Date: May 17/67, No. C15474”; the pants tags is located on the front inner waistband: “Name: Col H Sanders 5271L, Date: May 17/67.” Also included is Sanders’s white dress shirt made by Arrow Belmont Club with inner collar stamped: “Bard Sanforized Plus 2, 17-33CC.” The outfit is accompanied by a black tie that was not worn by Sanders. In fine condition, with expected wear from use, some scattered stains, a repaired hole to seat of pants, and toning and yellowing from age. A rare opportunity to own what is perhaps the most iconic suit in the history of the American fast food industry.
