    Jeff Bridges "The Dude" signature costume and sweater from The Big Lebowski. Jeff Bridges "The Dude" signature costume and sweater from The Big Lebowski. (Polygram, 1998)  This original costume was screen-worn by Jeff Bridges as "The Dude" in the Coen Brothers classic comedy The Big Lebowski. "The Dude" character is considered one of the most cherished "lovable losers" in cinematic history. This signature costume consists of a purple-dyed and distressed (with burnhole) XL V-neck Jockey brand T-shirt, grey striped, elastic-waist caftan "muscle pants," and his very memorable tri-tone brown well worn zipper-front cable-knit sweater (of which a few examples were required to make it through the entire production).  With original costumer tag with stamped template allowing the costumer to write in the appropriate details: "Character: Dude / Chg.: 11 / Scenes: 49-56; 58-64 / Description: N6 / Int. Theater / Int. Larry's House / Int. Bungalow / Int. Jackie Treehorn / Int. Chief's (Malibu) / Int. Cab - Bunny drives by / Int. Bungalow - Maude's there".  On the verso of the tag is handwritten in pencil, "Brown Guatemalan pants / maroon V-neck t-shirt / Swtr: tan wooly, zip front w/ brown pattern / Jellies /n ottomix".  Easily one of the most recognized and admired costumes from recent Hollywood history.  In production-used condition as seen in the film. On July 31, 2012, Profiles in History sold a virtual twin of this very costume for an astounding $114,000.
