Jackets worn by George Harrison and Ringo Starr during the filming of The Beatles 1965 film “Help!” are to go up for sale,” Omega Auctions announced in a press release Feb. 11. The jackets, which were worn throughout the filming of the movie in the Alps and are also seen on the album cover of the soundtrack, are expected to sell for in excess of £50,000 ($82,396), according to auction house estimates.

The jackets come from direct Richard Lester’s private collection, Omega Auctions says. Auctioneer Paul Fairweather describes the coats as “tailored and very stylish" and says, "If I had the money to afford them, I would wear them without hesitation.”

The sale is part of an auction of over 200 lots of rare Beatles memorabilia and vinyl records to be hosted by Omega Auctions on March 20 at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles song “Can’t Buy Me Love”.
