Derek Smalls' (Harry Shearer) jacket from Rob Reiner's mockumentary musical comedy This is Spinal Tap. British heavy metal bassist Smalls wore his jacket while attending a promotional party and a recording industry convention during a tour of the United States with his bandmates.
This black zip-up motorcycle style satin blend jacket with white piping details features multicolored rhinestone and star-shape accents on the lapels and shoulders. The front of the jacket features four pockets and zippers on the wrists. The interior of the collar features an "It's A Ray!" label, identifying it as the work of famed stage clothing designer Ray Brown. Also included is a Letter of Authenticity signed by Brown which explains that the jacket was originally designed for Judas Priest singer Rob Halford before being used for Smalls' wardrobe. It exhibits signs of wear from age and production use, but remains in excellent overall condition.
Estimate: $15,000 - 20,000
