Bev Re Leonard Cohen: “You just have to love a man who would give you the shirt off his back!”

Bev, aka B4real, received this official The Future long sleeved T-shirt from Leonard Cohen, who inscribed these words across the front:

for Beverly

the shirt
off my back

with love

Bev explains:

Firstly, I want to again thank Leonard for this excellent gift. You just have to love a man who would give you the shirt off his back!

The reason I have Leonard’s shirt is that last year The Leonard Cohen Files celebrated 20 years online with a Logo Design Competition. I was fortunate to be a winner and my 1st place (shared with two others) prize was a personally signed rare official The Future long sleeved T-shirt. I will treasure it forever and make sure it never wears out!

  1. Ah Alan,
    Such wonderful memories of this occasion for me!! Thank you ever so much for reviving them!
    You are truly a sweetheart….. ahem, I think I’ve said that before some years ago 😉
    I still have my signed shirt in a safe place.
    It’s comforting to be able to wrap his words around me when I feel the need for that extra hug.
    Bev
