The world’s most expensive men’s suit is set to go on sale for almost £600,000 in what has been billed as the “ultimate in luxury fashion”, according to its British designer.
The custom-made suit, made with cashmere wool, silk and diamonds, took more than 600 hours to produce.
Its UK-based designer, Stuart Hughes, said almost 500 diamonds were embodied throughout the suit.
He said each single cut gem was 0.5 carats, colour G, VS2 quality, all of which total 240 carats.
Only three of the expensive suits have been made and retail for a staggering £599,999 each.
A buyer in France has bought the first one in size 41.
Mr Hughes worked with Richard Jewels to produce the exclusive suits, which come with a two-week all-expenses-paid trip to Arc en Ciel in St Lucia included in the price.
“It is a very luxurious dark grey suit and will make any man stand out from the crowd,” said Hughes, who is renowned for designing some of the world’s most expensive gadgets.
“This is the first time I have ever worked with clothing so it was a big step for me but I really enjoyed it.
“I think we have definitely achieved our aim to create a timeless classic which is also comfortable and wearable. It is the ultimate in luxury fashion.”
Mr Jewels added: “I hope to establish a luxury brand that will not only capture the eyes but the hearts of the consumers.
“The emphasis on our products is to solidify one’s individuality.”
Mr Hughes said 10 per cent of the suit’s sales will be donated to the Haiti relief fund.View Comments
