BEATLES FOR SALE: The white suit worn by John Lennon on the cover of the "Abbey Road" album will be up for sale on New Year's Day at Braswell Galleries in Norwalk, Conn. The two-piece suit, designed by Ted Lapidus, was donned by Lennon for the cover shoot by Iain Macmillan depicting the four musicians parading single file through the zebra crosswalk outside Abbey Road Studios in London. The suit previously sold for $120,000 at auction in 2005 and is now being sold by an anonymous collector of Lennon memorabilia, along with a blazer worn by the former Beatle in the 1971 "Imagine" documentary and a 1972 green Chrysler station wagon once owned by Lennon and his widow, Yoko Ono. Kathy Braswell, co-owner of the auction house, noted of the suit: "It's very small. He was five-foot-10 and very thin. It's a slim suit."
