While Bernie Madoff spends the next 150 years in prison blues for securities fraud, iPad owners can buy his clothes to protect their iPads in style.
iPad cover manufacturer Frederick James is selling sleeves made from Bernie Madoff’s pants. The collection comes from Madoff’s summer attire, taken from his beach house in the Hamptons.
Last November, the U.S. Marshals Service auctioned off Madoff’s belongings, giving the proceeds as compensation to victims of his Ponzi scheme. John Vaccaro, founder of Frederick James, bought up Madoff’s cashmere sweaters and chino pants to expand his collection and help victims of the felon’s crimes.
Several covers made from Madoff’s khakis are still available on the Frederick James website. The sleeves start at $250 and come with a certificate of authenticity.
