AMERICAN IDOL star Clay Aiken has stripped for a good cause and even he's staggered by the amount of people who want to buy his used clothes.

The singer has handed over the tuxedo he wore to Sunday night's (18SEP05) Emmy Awards in Hollywood to celebrity charity Clothes Off Our Backs, together with his cufflinks and shoes.

And, as fans clammer to get Aiken's attire, as part of an internet auction, his KENNETH COLE suit has topped $6,000 (GBP3,330), while his cufflinks have fetched $1,500 (GBP833) and his shoes $2,500 (GBP1,390) so far.
