Get Ready To Bid On One Of The Most Famous Suits Of All Time

by MR Magazine Staff

Forget Hedi Slimane-era Saint Laurent suits. If you want really want that rock ‘n’ roll heritage in your tailoring, then a John Lennon circa-1964 Beatle suit is the way to go. Not a recreation, mind you. An actual four-button, narrow-lapel skinny suit once worn by John Lennon—perhaps one of the most iconic pieces of menswear ever made, which just so happens to be up for auction. Beginning tomorrow, you can bid on a 1960s Douglas Millings suit made famous by Lennon and The Beatles during those early years of the British invasion. One look at this thing and you will undoubtedly have “She Loves Me” stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The grey wool suit was made by Millings—a British tailor that created more than 500 looks for the band—and features two D. A. Millings & Sons labels, as well as “John” written both inside the breast pockets and on the trousers below the fly zipper. It also comes with a vintage 5.75” x 8.5” glossy photo of John wearing the suit, and a letter of authentication from Madame Tussauds, where it was most recently displayed. See more at Esquire.
