A custom-made tweed suit worn by former Beatle John Lennon is set to go up for auction with a price tag of $65,000.
The two-piece grey and black houndstooth suit, designed by tailor Douglas Millings, was worn by Lennon during the height of the Beatles' fame in the 1960s.
According to Boston-based RR Auctions, the suit is "in very fine condition" and offers bidders the "rare opportunity to own a full suit from one of the most important artists of all time." Lennon later donated the suit to London waxworks museum Madame Tussauds.
The auction of the suit, first reported by the Liverpool Echo, is estimated to fetch $65,000 plus when it goes under the hammer next week.
One of the most iconic musicians of the 20th century, Lennon wrote a host of famous songs, from "Norwegian Wood" to "Imagine". He died in 1980 after being shot by Mark David Chapman in New York City.
Decades after their split, the appetite for Beatles memorabilia remains strong. In February, a lock of Lennon's hair was sold in Dallas by Heritage Auctions for $35,000.
