Blog: Suit a snip at GBP45,000
Leonie Barrie | 18 October 2007
For the man who has everything, how about the world’s most expensive suit? Savile Row tailor William Westmancott has come up with the 'Ultimate Bespoke,' made from a one-off luxury cloth designed and woven in a traditional English Mill.
Perhaps fearful that this alone doesn’t justify the eye-watering GBP45,000 (US$92,000) price tag, Westmancott points out that the suit will take 150 to 200 workshop hours of construction, with many weeks of work spent designing and weaving the cloth and linings. Oh, and a complete sample suit will be made first to ensure the pattern is perfect. And the tailor will fly out to “anywhere in the world” to carry out the fittings. Still not reaching for your wallet? How about a complimentary set of five bespoke shirts worth GBP2,475 thrown in as part of the deal? No, I didn’t think so.
