Jim Morrison’s Silver Indian Concho Belt
Most musicians have some kind of trademark fashion staple.  John Lennon had the glasses,Elvis had the jumpsuits and Jim Morrison had “the belt”.
The belt that Morrison made famous on stage with The Doors and in many of his photo sessions is called a “concho belt.” The traditional concho belt is unique to the Zuni and the Diné (Navajo) Pueblo tribes from the Southwestern United States.
During the late 60’s when The Doors were at the height of their fame, Morrison purchased the concho belt from Wayne and Irma Bailey of Albuquerque while they were visiting California.  Joe H. Quintana was the maker of this famous belt.
These belts are hand made of silver and are really expensive.  It has been rumored that Morrison paid over $1000 for the belt and that it was one of his most prized possession.

No one knows exactly what happened to the original belt after Morrison’s death, but after considerable interest in by fans of The Doors andJim Morrison, Cippy (Joe H. Quintana son) has been making a ‘Limited Edition Jim Morrison Concho Belt‘ that is as close as possible to the original in design, using the same ‘stamps’ used by his late father.

After his death some people said Jim was buried with the belt, while other contend that renowned fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent now owns it in his collection. Neither of these rumors have been ever been confirmed and the location and possession of the belt still remain a mystery. britwest.net new belts just made #santefe #santefefashionweek #jimmorrison
