Steve Jobs’ Iconic 1984 Macintosh Ad Suit Now Up For Auction – Matching Ties Are Available Also

If you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe and money isn’t a limiting factor, you can score a navy blue pin-striped Brioni for Wilkes Bashford suit worn by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs in January 1984 Macintosh marketing photograph. The suit is expected to bring a winning bid of $30,000 or more.

As reported by AppleInsider, Jobs wore the suit in an ad promoting the debut of the Macintosh, and it is now up for auction. At the time of this article, the suit has attracted one bid, $10,000, which does not meet the auction’s reserve.

“The 100% cupro suit features thin vertical stripes throughout, with two front pockets, one breast pocket, three interior pockets, grey buttons, a cream silk-blend lining, size tag reads “39/49.” Together with a pair of matching dress pants, size 39L,” reads the Julien’s Auctions¬†auction listing.

The auction also includes a vintage Apple Macintosh pin that was discovered in a suit pocket pocket. The auctioneer is throwing in the original wooden hanger as well. You’re on your own for a dress shirt, although patterned Steve Jobs worn ties are available separately from the auction house.

A Jobs-worn taupe and white striped two-piece wool suit by Dimitri Couture is also up for bid. This suit’s claim to fame was that Jobs was photographed wearing it at a friend’s retirement party. At the time of this article, the top (and only) bid was $5,000 (hasn’t met the reserve). It is expected to bring a winning bid of $20,000 to $30,000.

There are also two ties from Jobs’ wardrobe on the auction block, valued at around $2,000 each.

The first tie is a slate blue Wilkes Bashford San Francisco necktie Jobs wore in a 1980s photoshoot. It currently has one bid of $1,000.

The second tie is a brown silk Polo Ralph Lauren brand necktie Jobs wore in a 1977 Apple-II release photo. The tie’s high bid currently sits at $2,000.
