When asked about the fab jacket-in-question, Uncle Si had a perfectly Si response. “A lady done this for me, okay, and it’s been four or five years ago– she made this when we had the show,” he said.
He said he requested that the jacket have a very specific look. “Hey, you’ve seen George Jones and some of the stuff he wears, and Conway Twitty,” he said. “You see the kind of stuff they wear? I said, make this that. And she did.”
And MAN did he werk it on that Red Carpet, finger guns and all.
