Auction house co-owner Gary Braswell said that the suit's current owner decided to sell after experiencing some economic hardship. He, however, refused to disclose the seller's name. He said he did know how much the wool-blend suit would fetch, but noted that the suit and blazer together sold for 120,000 dollars in 2005.
