London tailor Douglas Millings made many of the early stage suits for The Beatles.
They were made in grey wool mixed with mohair and in other shades, some of which they never wore.
Millings took the idea of collarless jackets from similar suits created in 1960 by French designer Pierre Cardin.
'Beatle suits' proved so popular with fans that many had copies specially made. Ready-made versions were also available through adverts in music publications.
