This men's suit designed by luxury-lifestyle-entrepreneur

extraordinaire Alexander Amosu is so valuable that it was moved around

secretly and had extra security officers assigned to guard it. It is so

expensive that a specially armored Range Rover was used to transport it

to its mystery buyer.

This magnificent article is a masterpiece both technically and

visually. Producing a sartorial suit of this magnitude takes 200

measurements and two separate fittings to achieve its perfectly

contoured to fit to a one-off body shape.

There is a lot to be said for the materials as well. It is called

Vanquish II, which is a three-part specially blended wool. Vanquish II

is made from the hair of an Arctic musk ox, a Himalayan mountain goat,

and a vicuna, which is an animal related to the camel that lives in

South America. The hair of the Arctic musk ox is called qivuk.

Pashmina, which is comparable to cashmere except lighter, is the

sheared hair of a Himalayan mountain goat, and the eponymous vicuna.

The suit also comes with nine 18-carat gold buttons with pave-set

diamonds. It did take 80 hours to make it, and it does have 5,000

individual stitches of platinum and gold threads. Imagine how it would

feel to be wearing a customized $40,000-Brioni suit and to see that

mystery buyer wearing a suit that cost more than twice as much.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Amosu said, I firmly believe that

in the wake of the recession, there is still a demand for

uncompromising quality. We might not be catering to everyone, but the

people who buy Alexander Amosu want to wear the very best suits in the


The suit is going to be introduced at an upcoming soiree soon to be

announced, according to the Telegraph. A company press release

indicates this is only the beginning. A line of six-figure Alexander

Amosu custom-made suits is forthcoming. However, Vanquish II is so rare

that only 300 suits can be produced yearly.
