'Abbey Road' suit sells $46k at auction in Connecticut. 'Abbey Road' suit whom John Lennon wore on the Beatles album cover sells for $46k. It is probably one of the best memorabilia collections to be bought in our lifetime.

Dressed in a white two-piece suit, worn by John Lennon, can be seen on the front cover of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' album.

The suit sold in Connecticut for $46,000 along with other Beatles' memorabilia on Saturday at the Braswell Galleries' annual New Year's Day auction to an online bidder who wished to remain anonymous.

Owner Kathy Braswell tells the Connecticut Post the holiday auction is their biggest event of the year.

The suit was custom made for Lennon by French designer Ted Lapidus.

Hank Gioiella of Darien paid $5,500 for a rusted green 1972 Chrysler station wagon Lennon and Yoko Ono owned.
