The world’s most expensive men’s suit is to go on sale for almost £600,000 in what has been billed as the “ultimate in luxury fashion,” according to its British designer said.
The bespoke suit, made with cashmere wool, silk and diamonds, took more than 600 hours to produce.
Stuart Hughes, its 39 year-old Liverpool-based designer, said almost 500 diamonds were embodied throughout the suit.
He said each single cut gem was 0.5cts, color G, VS2 quality, all of which total 240 cts.
Only three of the suits have been made and retail for £599,999. A buyer in France has bought the first one in size 41.
Hughes said 10 percent of the sales will be donated to the Haiti relief fund.
Hughes has been behind the world’s most expensive iPhones, television sets, luxury Nintendo gadgets and a model car, a gold Bugatti Veyron.
