OK...need more info to help...

1) HOW do you know its authentic?

2) Is there a label(s) sewn inside the jacket?
2a) Was the jacket ever altered?

3) WHEN did you acquire it?
3a) How did the previous owner acquire it?

4) Was there ANYthing in the pockets?

5) Any thing else you can tell us?

6) Can you get close up pics of all the labels...buttons...spare buttons...seams...

I used to deal vintage clothes and furniture and used to research stuff like this all the time.
Its been years but I would like to try

This jacket came from a lady who worked for Charlie Watts in the late 70's and early 80's.

I also acquired several other items of clothing from this lady, which all have come from the personal wardrobe of Charlie Watts and was give to her as a gift for her many years of work.

The label inside the jacket reads IRANIAN HANDICRAFTS, MADE IN IRAN

If that is all you got...I cant help you.
I was hoping for an actual merchant or couture designer.

All you can really do now is troll the interweb for pictures.
Pahlavi died in 1980...and the revolution in Iran started in 1978...so I would start with pictures before then as I am sure
after that there was little to no further trade with the west.

Good luck and let us know what you find.

What else did you get?

OK I have been looking at RS photos all of my life and I don't recall seeing this particular jacket on Charlie. I just did a random internet search and didn't see it but since this jacket was pre-internet it might be hard to find.

I just spent about twenty minutes looking at a Google image search for "Charlie Watts jacket."

Virtually every jacket Charlie wears is a solid color, which goes in line with Charlie's taste for fine suits.

If Charlie actually wore this particular jacket, I'd guess it was for a single occasion back in the sixties or early seventies.

I'd be skeptical about Charlie's involvement with this jacket without verifiable proof.

I wonder if this could be a Nudie design.

Perhaps Gram Parsons left this thing lying around somewhere.

This is another jacket worn by Charlie Watts. It also comes with black trousers. Inside this jacket is a "Granny Takes A Trip" label. I think this could be from the 1969 Savile Theatre rehearsal.

If anybody can help confirm this that would be very helpful.

The Saville Theatre is in London, the rehearsals were the same day of the shows, December 14, 1969

The label would not have New York on it in 1969 as stated the New York shop was not opened until 70 or 71. Wink
