Dobell’s Clothing Exhibition
In September 1969 William Dobell dressed up for his formal 70th birthday party hosted by Dr & Mrs McMahon in Sydney. You can now come into Dobell House and see this outfit.
It is a glamorous outfit with a white dress shirt, waistband, a Dobell bowtie, dinner suit & a vintage Apollo pure woollen overcoat.
And, William’s personal cuff links initialled “WD”.
This is a really special exhibit and it truely has to be something you see for real.
Sir William’s Bolero & Tails Suit
We now have William’s Bolero (with tails) style suit on display.
The shirt buttons are screwed on and his cufflink of a lion with a crown traditionally symbolises courage, nobility, royalty, strength, stateliness and valour. A lot like William.
We imagine William wearing this suit to a fancy do, obviously in his young days when he was slimmer & dapper. Maybe bought and worn in London.
