Hyde Park Memorial Concert Ensemble

A complete stage worn ensemble from the Rolling Stones historic July 5, 1969, Hyde Park concert.

The Hyde Park show, originally intended to introduce Mick Taylor as the newest member of the Rolling Stones, instead became a memorial tribute to Brian Jones, who had died tragically just two days before this concert was scheduled to take place.

The first piece is a vintage cropped white silk jacket with elaborate crocheted yarn braiding trim, wide pagoda sleeves, and single hook and eye front closure. The vintage jacket has interior label reading “Chas. H. Fox Ltd. / 184, High Holborn, W.C. 1” with additional handwritten “0/178” written below. Chas. H. Fox is a well known London theatrical costumer, and this jacket likely dates to the first quarter of the 20th century, starting life as a theatrical Zouaves style jacket.

The second piece is a pair of burgundy suede trousers with front button and zip closures and decorative buttons along the full length of the outer seams of each leg. No interior label, but Wyman’s records indicate that the trousers were made by Cordoba.

The last item is a pair of ochre leather lace-up shoes with interior leather insert reading, in part, “Made Exclusively For / SIDS.”

Jacket featured on page 333 of Rolling With The Stones. Wyman, Bill. Doring Kindersley Limited, London, 2002.
