The Pendleton sweater that Jeff Bridges wore in The Big Lebowski is up for auction, and the current bid is $11,000. Our sister site Racked LA reports: "For Bridges' now-classic role as pothead and lounger par excellence Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, costume designer Mary Zophres found a wool Pendleton grandpa sweater from the 1970s and had three copies made. Yet Bridges only wore this one—and he never took it off for the entire duration of the shoot, so as to "delve deeper into the 'Dudeness' required of the role." [Racked LA]
