Jimmy's ugly sweater :)


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for every possible picture of Jimmy in his primarily Copenhagen 1973 sweater because even though it's the ugliest little thing, I adore him in it! this is my entire collection of him in it, could any of you add some more to it?

I love this sweater! :D I bought a similiar one but in black and white because it reminded me of this! Love the pictures, you must have them all! I saw you had this but with slightly different colouring. Good luck and I hope more turn up!

Originally, I thought that sweater was what was commonly known in the northwest as a coastal Indian Sweater but after seeing the weave, it looks more like a native weave from the southwest. Back in the mid/late 70's, those sweaters were a dime a dozen in Tijuana.

It's nowhere nearly as ugly as that monstrosity he wears at RAH 70.

Oh Major Major pain in the butt, he looked great in that sweater. It went well with the big ass Texas sized belt buckle and the white girly sneakers.

What he's wearing underneath the fur coat is a shirt. If I remember correctly the photograph was taken by Zacron, the artist friend of Jimmy's who designed the cover for Led Zeppelin III. I would guess that it was taken in late March 1970. He's wearing that same shirt for instance on stage in Philadelphia on March 31, 1970.

In the band photo, taken in 1975, he's wearing a different shirt, also worn on stage on February 14, 1975, for instance.

Interestingly enough, there are photos of Robert taken a couple of years later, where he's wearing an identical shirt.
