Bruce Lee is gone, but his movies live on. That, and memorabilia, including his most iconic outfits, which are up for auction in Hong Kong.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of his death.

According to AP, a tailor in Hong Kong custom made the jumpsuit, but it was washed after filming, causing the garment to shrink 15cm.
