Although luxury fashion and beauty is normally associated with women, in the world of luxury fabrics and tailoring some of the most expensive men’s suits are still ludicrously extravagant in terms of pricing and quality.
Most of these suits are necessarily reserved for the superclass: The world’s leading businessmen, celebrities, and world leaders who can afford to spend more money on a single suit than you can afford to spend on your car (or even your house). Such is the nature and allure of the exclusivity inherent in these, the 5 most expensive men’s suits in the world.
Stuart Hughes Diamond Edition
The most expensive suit in the world is priced at almost a million dollars.
When you see what the suit includes, however, the price is understandable. Famed luxury goods designer Stuart Hughes teamed up with world-renowned tailor Richard Jewels to create this extravagant piece of art of which there are only three in the world.
These suits took more than 800 hours to design and stitch, and they are made of wool, cashmere, silk. What skyrockets the price of this bedazzled trouser and jacket combo? Diamonds.
Over 480 half-carat diamonds are etched onto the exterior lining of these jackets, creating the most outlandishly expensive (if not outlandish looking) suit in the world.
Alexander Amosu Vanquish II Bespoke
Alexander Amosu is a luxury goods entrepreneur, not just a men’s clothing specialist. He did, however, roll out this exquisite suit at over $100,000. He made his fortune creating hip-hop ringtones, then made gold- and diamond-encrusted mobile phones. In 2009 he launched his own clothing company.
It’s made from two of the most expensive wools in the world: rare vicuna and qivuik, and was custom-made for an anonymous buyer. It was reported that it was also delivered in an armored van. Each suit has 9 buttons of 18 carat gold and diamonds.
Dormeuil Vanquish II
The Dormeuil family business was established over 170 years ago, in 1842. The Vanquish II fabric is the brainchild of the patriarch, Jules Dormeuil, mixing the best British and French cloth to design the ultimate luxury tailored suits.
It has been claimed that they’ve offered their services to kings, presidents, and celebrities for years.
This particularly expensive suit consists of six of the world’s rarest fabrics: royal Qivuik, Ambassador, Dorsilk, Kirgzy White, and Fifteen Point Eight – clearly, the price-tag reflects that.
This off-putting, World War II era striped zoot suit was sold in 2011 at New York City’s Augusta Auctions for $78,000. Augusta Auctions is a vintage clothing company owned by Karen Augusta, and she originally priced the suit to sell at $600-$900.
When she began to receive calls from museums around the country, she admitted she thought she could sell the suit for “as much as $5,000, maybe more,” but never imagined that such a high price would be reached from eager bidders.
It’s the only suit of its kind to be auctioned in the US, which gives it high demand. It was discovered at an estate sale in New Jersey.
This is would be a perfect suit if you decide to have dinner in the sky. What if you could float in the air with your friends and loved ones while sipping on expensive wine? Sounds like a dream…well Dinner in the Sky makes this dream a reality.
William Westmancott Ultimate Bespoke
William Westmancott is the Savile Row neighbor of Desmond Merrion. But what makes his “Ultimate Bespoke” $28,500 more expensive than Merrion’s “Supreme Bespoke?”
Well, this Westmancott suit is a 3- or 4- piece suit instead of a 2-piece. It takes 200 hours for experts at Westmancott to tailor and design this ultra-light, expensive suit. This suit was originally designed to target high-profile Middle Eastern and Russian moguls.
Westmancott will also throw in five bespoke shirts for free for any buyers, which has been a successful marketing ploy. It’s worth mentioning, too, that Westmancott is only 28 years old…
