EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we are transported back to the vibrant 1960s in London's Regent Street. The iconic Cassius Clay, later known as Muhammad Ali, is seen getting measured at Austin Reeds, a renowned department store of that era. As the picture reveals, Cassius was on a quest for the perfect suit but faced an unexpected challenge - his impressive chest and shoulders proved too big for any available options. Undeterred by this setback, he decided to purchase some shirts instead. However, even finding a shirt that could accommodate his athletic build posed its own difficulties. Taken on the 28th of May in 1963, this image captures not only Cassius' determination to find clothing that suited him but also highlights the limited range of sizes available during those times for individuals with different body types. Cassius Clay's visit to Austin Reeds showcases his unique journey as both an African American and a celebrated boxer. This photograph serves as a reminder of his significant contributions to sports history and cultural diversity within society. Photographer Arthur Sidey skillfully encapsulates this moment in time when fashion met athleticism and challenges were overcome with grace and resilience.
