Featuring a gray houndstooth pattern, the woollen suit was worn by the music icon in 1964 while performing with The Beatles. It was designed by the band’s tailor Douglas Millings and features two handwritten labels marked ‘John’ on the breast pocket interior and on the trousers.

The suit will be put up for auction by Nate D. Sanders Auctions today, March 30, with bidding beginning at $50,000.
