'Saturday Night Fever' – White Polyester Suit

Sold for: $145,500

"Saturday Night Fever" was the movie that made disco a mainstream phenomenon in 1977. The movie was also responsible for a preponderance of polyester suits, such as the white one worn by John Travolta.

His suit sold at a 1995 Christie's auction for $145,500. The winning bidder was the late Chicago Tribune film critic Gene Siskel. Inside the suit, Travolta wrote: "To Gene, So here's to a classic, your friend, John Travolta."
