World’s Most Expensive Suit

I came across Born Rich for the first time today when I was researching some ideas to decorate a pool for an upcoming event. Very cool blog with a lot of cha-ching stuff. For instance, I fell in love with these designer pool lamps they posted. They are rechargeable lamps, constructed of waterproof polyethylene, which means no chance of receiving an electric-shock! Priced at $450, they are not for the budget friendly, however they are tres chic and would certainly make any event swank!

Then there was this suit, apparently the world's most expensive suit. Designed by Alexander Amosu and costing £70,000 or $101,860!!! So what makes a suit cost $101, 860? Well, it is its rich make and the number of hours it took to give shape to this formal garment. The one-off creation has taken in excess of 80 hours to complete and is made from vicuña, a rare wild South American animal related to the camel which only produces enough wool for shearing every three years, qiviuk, the world’s most expensive wool, gathered from the Arctic muskox. When blended with pashmina from the high mountain plateaus of the Himalayas they create Vanquish II, one of the world’s most luxurious cloths. The suit features over 5,000 individual stitches equating to £14 (approx. $20) per stitch. And no price for guessing that the suit features diamonds to justify its six-figure price tag. The suit features nine 18-carat gold and pave set diamond buttons to make it worth every penny. The most expensive suit went on sale in London and was sold to a mystery buyer for the mentioned $101,860 price tag.
