Are you in the market for some gently worn clothing and/or shoes? Would you be into paying a lot of money for clothing that was once worn by members of a boy band whom you love? Do you have the scientific knowledge to extract DNA from worn clothing and then produce a clone from said DNA? Well, then, the stars have aligned for you! One Direction and Office Depot, as we know, have joined forces to produce back-to-school gear that is adorned with five QT faces. Now, fortunately for everyone in the world, Office Depot has gotten its hands on shirts, shoes, and pants worn by Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis and is auctioning them off for charity.

We’re not talking pairs of jeans that could’ve been worn by any one—no, these are shirts and shoes that these dudes have worn, like a lot. So they may actually be more “heavily” worn than “gently,” but also WHO EVEN CARES because you’ll be rolling around in a shirt that once touched Liam Payne’s bare skin. Since we’re already discussing Liam, we’ll start with him: he’s donated a white Espirit peace sign t-shirt that he wore on the first leg of the Take Me Home tour, and the highest bid for it at press time is $475. Niall donated a white henley tee that is currently going for $850, which is almost double the $500 estimated value assigned to it. #math Harry also donated a shirt—an iconic shirt if you know the intimate deets of Harry Styles’ shirt collection (I am offering lessons if anyone wants to get schooled): he’s parted with his black Ramones t-shirt. There is ample photo evidence of how frequently Harry has worn this shirt, and for that reason slash it probably has Harry’s lingering odor on it, it’s leading the bidding at $1500. If anyone wants to get it for me, my birthday is in December. Thanks in advance.

If you’re not into shirts, don’t worry, the two other dudes have you covered. Zayn decided to part with a pair of pants that he wore on tour and maybe because of the description is too vague—he has a lot of pants!—the bids for Zayn’s item are the lowest, at $325 so far. With two weeks left, I have faith in Zayn and his beautiful face. Finally, Louis has spared a pair of white sneakers that he most likely wore on the Up All Night tour, and definitely wore without socks. You can bottle the scent of Louis Tomlinson’s feet and sell it. That’d be so gross, but Directioners (myself included) might buy it (especially since Our Moment sold out immediately), and then you’d be rich.

The auction still has two weeks left—bidding ends September 17th—so bidding is bound to get waaaay higher, but the money is going to a good cause and you’ll be able to say to your friends, “Oh, this ol’thing? Just a shirt aged to perfection by Niall Horan.” Awww yeah. *brushes shoulders off*
