An auction loaded with clothing worn by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs features a famous suit he wore to promote the Mac — and it alone is expected to bring in $30,000.

You, too, can own a piece of Apple advertising history — if you’re willing to fight for it on the auction block. Steve Jobs’ iconic blue pin-striped suit, worn in a January 1984 marketing photograph, is currently up for bid.

Jobs famously wore the suit in an ad promoting the debut of the Macintosh.

“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.

As a bonus, it also includes a vintage Apple Macintosh pin found in the pocket and the original wooden hanger. The white shirt Jobs wore, however, is not — you’ll have to provide your own.

If blue isn’t your color, Jobs’ taupe and white striped wool, two-piece suit by DiMitri Couture is up for bid, too. Jobs was photographed wearing it at a friend’s retirement party.

Should you not want to drop quite that much on an article of Jobs’ wardrobe, there are currently two ties from his wardrobe up for bid. The first is a slate blue Wilkes Bashford San Francisco brand necktie worn in a 1980s photoshoot.

Jobs-related items tend to command a strong price at auction. For example, a $4.01 check Jobs wrote to RadioShack commanded over $46,000 at auction in December.

Before that, an Apple check signed by Jobs from July 1976 also went up for auction. However, that check to pay Crampton, Remke, and Miller, Inc $175 eventually sold for just under $107,000.
