    Looks like a TKMaxx mall jacket IMHO :( If he has the provenance definitely sell it and buy a wardrobe full of Aero's or whatever is your favourite maker. Were I to be shown this ahem! Iconic piece, I would mumble a low key "Nice"

    That is one ugly jacket. I would like to think JFK would have been too cool to wear that. It may have been given to him as a gift, so yes, he actually owned it, but never or seldom wore it.

    Guess anything with famous persons names involved puts a premium on a value. What next? JFKs slippers or Jackie's bra? Indeed someone in the UK bought a toilet Hitler used :eek:

    the story was that he left the jacket with a girlfriend in the south of France - he returned to the USA and married Jackie. Surprised by the high valuation for a relatively obscure piece though.
