Bruce Lee screen-worn suede suit from ''The Lost Interview'', the only English television interview that Lee gave, for The Pierre Breton Show on 9 December 1971. The interview was thought to be lost to history until it reemerged in 1994, and in it, Lee gives many of his famous statements including ''I have no fear'', and ''Be water, my friend.'' He continues, ''Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Now, you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash! Be water, my friend''.

Attractive two-piece suit comprises a jacket and matching pair of trousers in chestnut brown suede with contrasting bronze stitching. Fully-lined jacket hits below the hip, snaps up the front and features a pocket positioned diagonally at the left breast. A Coronet Leatherware brand label is sewn to the interior pocket. Measures 17.5'' across the chest. Two-pocket trousers feature a zip front and two snap closure, measuring 30'' in the waist, with a 30'' inseam. Jacket is near fine and trousers show a few tiny stains to the back and some unraveling of thread at left hip pocket, else near fine. From the collection of Herb Jackson, well-documented as Lee's first generation Jeet Kune Do protege, builder of custom martial arts training equipment for Lee and ultimately his good friend. Lee gifted the suit to Jackson at the time of filming ''Return of the Dragon'', when the latter went to visit him on location in Hong Kong. With a COA from Jackson's son.
