The archetypal collarless suit worn by John Lennon during the Beatles' rise to stardom has come to light 40 years after it was thought to have been lost.<br />
<br />
The beige Mohair 'Beatles' suit which had a round necked jacket was famously worn by the fledgling band during in the early 1960s.<br />
<br />
The choice of clothing was the brainchild of their manager Brian Epstein who got John, Paul, George and Ringo to ditch their jeans and leather jackets for a more clean-cut image to appeal to a wider audience.<br />
<br />
It is to be sold by auctioneers The Fame Bureau for £150,000.
