Brian Epstein's coat

This smart looking wool and cashmere coat made by Aquascutum of Regent Street in London was once the property of Brian Epstein, owner of NEMS and manager of the Beatles.

The vendor's sister was given the jacket by the father of Peter Brown. She would go for meals with Peter, his family and Queenie Epstein when he visited Liverpool. His father gave her the coat for her husband to wear, but it wasn't to his style but they kept hold of it.

The estimate on this item is £400-£500.

The auction takes place on August 27th 2011 at The Paul McCartney Auditorium at LIPA. It is organised by The Beatles Shop on Mathew Street, where lots are still being taken in up until June.
