In the world of style, pop icon Michael Jackson’s willingness to try different patterns and designs made him truly unique. Millions of people around the world saw his elaborate costumes, but very few realized the Western influence in the design. The Autry National Center’s installation shows how Jackson’s use of Western wear evolved over the years, reflecting his ability to use classic Western styles in distinctive ways.

Featured items on display include:

Cowboy outfit
Western-style belt and buckle
Steel cowboy boots
Red bib-front shirt with black trim
Designers Tompkins/Bush’s original sketch
Black 501 Levi’s jeans
Black fedora hat
Aviator sunglasses
Single white glove

This installation is made possible by the generosity of designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush. All of the artifacts are from their private collection. The Autry would like to thank them for their generosity and support.
