James Brown was the Godfather of Soul, a title he liked so much that he apparently had it sewn into the back of this suit that he wore on stage! It's thought that he wore the suit during an episode of Future Shock, since that's where the suit was obtained from. 

The suit is made from wool and suede and was tailor made for the great man- Heritage are auctioning the suit and they reckon it was made around 1977. Judging by the flame patterns and flares I'd have to agree with them. 

Bidding on the suit opens on the 30th of March.
