Frederick James, who makes attractive iPad covers out of "luxury rescued and vintage fabrics," purchased some of Bernie Madoff's trousers at auction. The cases he made from them cost between $250 and $350 each.
In the Fall of 2010, Frederick James obtained a limited number of personal clothing items belonging to the notorious felon, Bernie Madoff, at an auction held by the US Marshals Service. Madoff is an incarcerated American felon, former stockbroker, investment advisor, non-executive chairman of the NASDAQ stock market, and the admitted operator of what has been described as the largest Ponzi scheme in history. Frederick James has used the Madoff clothing to create limited edition iPad covers. Each item of clothing has been cut up to create a unique cover.
