These garments were worn by Mr. Foxx in numerous episodes throughout the series and was part of Fred Sanford’s signature look.

“Sanford and Son” was an American sitcom broadcasted by NBC from 1972 through 1977 and was produced by the legendary Norman Lear and Embassy TV (formerly TAT/Tandem) who are also known for “One Day At A Time”, “Maude”, “All in the Family”, “Good Times”, and “The Jeffersons”. Originally a remake of the BBC sitcom “Steptoe and Son”, the show became a ratings hit during all six seasons, influencing many other African American sitcoms with characters known for their edgy humor, catch phrases, running gags and fast-cash schemes. In 2007, “Sanford and Son” was included in TIME magazine’s “100 Best TV shows of All Time.” This item is in good screen worn condition and was acquired directly from the show’s costume designer and head of the Embassy TV wardrobe department.
