poly/wool blend, satin, thread, buttons
I purchased this suit for the occasion of the opening of an exhibition I curated called
'Alive Inside: The Lure and Lore of the Sideshow" back in 2005. I wanted to wear something that made me look as if I were a sideshow barker from the 1940s. I bought the suit at a soul shop on upper King Street here in Charleston, SC called Super Bad. Notice the name is not Sorta Bad, or Kinda Bad. I also bought a nice pair of two-toned alligator shoes to compliment the suit.
