Obi-Wan Kenobi cloak rediscovered

[Adam says:]

Personally, I think garments’ lost travels are more interesting than the post cards you sometimes see of a garden gnome traveling the world:

The cloak worn by Sir Alec Guinness in Star Wars has been rediscovered after nearly three decades.

After Guinness wore the garment for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi, it was returned to British costume firm Bermans.  The cloak was subsequently loaned to other films including 1999′s The Mummy, and even hired out as fancy dress.

It was identified in a stock check earlier this year and now forms part of a film memorabilia exhibition at the Harrods department store in London.

One thought on “Obi-Wan Kenobi cloak rediscovered

  1. From another article: “It was then rented out as a monk outfit and worn to parties by customers — or possibly by Star Wars fans dressing up as Obi Wan Kenobi without realising they were sporting the real thing.”

    The item as an item in a charity auction in March by Angels Fancy Dress in London. Just can’t find a web link to this event.
