Misconception: Jim would wear a religious collar on a regular basis

Fact: Jim appears to have worn the collar for one event in his whole life

I’ve noticed several people under the impression that Jim wore a religious collar on a regular basis because of a certain set of photos. The only evidence we have of him wearing the collar are the photos taken in January 1977 during a protest outside the International Hotel. Not only does it seem to be the only event when he did wear it, it also appears to be a priest collar.
