Why would a shirt be worth 500,000 pounds (about $701,720)? First, because it is 1,000 years old. Second, because it is from a lost empire. And third, because it is proof of the way clothes have been used to express power and aspiration for millenniums. Or so believes Sotheby’s, which is auctioning the one-of-a-kind golden silk samite shirt on April 25 in London.
