We can't imagine Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski ever getting excited enough about an auction item to rush out and bid on it. But if you must complete that essential Dude look, you can now purchase one of four sweaters made for "The Big Lebowski" as part of a Hollywood auction to be held later this month. Bidding is expected to start at $4,000-$6,000. Sorry; the dude's rug isn't on offer.

The auction catalog ties it all together:
Quote:
There were four sweaters made for the production this vintage sweater and three modern copies, according to costume designer Mary Zophres. Bridges wore this vintage sweater exclusively during the entire production, preferring to wear it all the time and thus delve deeper into the 'Dudeness' required of the role.

The auction will be held May 14-15 in Beverly Hills. If you don't want to spend $6,000, Pendleton Woolen Mills, which created the original Lebowski sweater, is launching a replica version in September. The "Dude Cardigan" will go for $188. "We had already decided to bring it back," says Debbie Coryell, manager for men's communications at Pendleton. "We had no idea about the auction."

We abide.

Yeah...I'd much rather have that rug.

I sure hope SnesGuy saved his money.

This is like a dream come true, but sadly i have no money to auction for an article of clothing thats probably gonna sell for over 4 grand. I may invest in one of those replicas in September though.
