The Associated Press reports that the white two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album has been sold at auction in Connecticut for $46,000.
The suit and other Beatles memorabilia were sold Saturday at the Braswell Galleries' annual New Year's Day auction to an online bidder who wished to remain anonymous. I guess when you have that much cash to burn, you like to maintain some modicum of privacy.
The suit was custom made for Lennon by French designer Ted Lapidus.
If you bid on and won John Lennon's Abbey Road suit, what would you do with it? Wear it? Preserve it for posterity?
