Irrespective of anyone’s opinion on the Playboy media monolith, it’s hard not to admit that Hugh Hefner’s brainchild back in 1953 had a serious impact on pop-culture. Bigger than the influence that the publication itself had is probably Hugh Hefner himself – and nothing evokes the spirit of the original playboy more than his robe. Well, now you can own it.
Being placed on auction, the robe will feature alongside a number of other personal items that belonged to Hefner, including his trademark captain’s hat and cufflinks; and fans will even get the chance to own a full set of bound magazines that will probably go for around $40,000 (around R590,000).
If you’re into buying old stuff from those who’ve passed on, 3 November is the date to mark down. Get more details at Julien’s Auctions!
