$30 grand for dirty pants. Which one of you “Star Wars” fanatics has got money to blow?
Nate D. Sanders Auctions is taking bids for a pair of Luke Skywalker’s famous off white-pants that Mark Hamill wore for most of “Star Wars: Episode IV.” The pants were customized by Bermans & Nathans from London and measure 29″ in the waist with an inseam of x 37″ (odd proportions, Mark!). While customized by the famous costume shop, the pants are actually just Levi’s that according to Hamill are “just bleached…with the tag still in them.”
As of this writing, the current bid stands at $32,818, but you have a few hours left to nab this piece of Hollywood memorabilia. If that’s something you want to do.
Here’s the full description from Nate D. Sanders:
Screen-worn ”hero” costume pants worn by Mark Hamill in his career-defining role as Luke Skywalker in the 1977 epic film ”Star Wars”, the first in the groundbreaking trilogy. As one of the top-grossing films of all time, George Lucas’ first film in the successful series won six Oscars, among many other awards. In a galaxy far, far away, Hamill donned these iconic pants as the Jedi Knight of all Jedi Knights, wearing the costume pants throughout much of the film. Sand-colored ”cotton drill” Levi’s pants are purposely distressed to display wear, with dirt to back right pocket and in spots to front of pant legs. In fact, in an accompanying article, Mark Hamill said of the pants, ”By the way, those pants I wore were just bleached Levi’s with the tag still in them.” Pants measure 29” waist x 37” in length with two 6” slits up each side. Customized by the famous London costumier, Bermans & Nathans, original tag sewn to inseam reads: ”Bermans & Nathans / 40 Camden St., / London N.W. 1” tag with a ”Mark Hamill / 10490 Luke / Star Wars” printed in type beneath it. Very good condition overall. Also with tags attached from both Christie’s, where the pants were originally auctioned, and Sotheby’s, from its 1998 auction.
