Forget expensive champagnes and phones, now it’s time to welcome the world’s most expensive suit. Created by Alexander Amosu, luxury designer to the rich and famous, the suit will be unveiled at a secret location in London. A one-off creation made from the finest fabrics in the world, this suit is definitely a class apart. Valued at a whopping £70,000 ($103,000) this suit has taken more than 80 hours and 5,000 individual stitches to make it. That is almost £14 ($21) per stitch! The additions of nine 18-carat gold and pave set diamond buttons have helped this suit attain its expensive price tag.

The materials used include rare vicuña and qiviuk. 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 extremely luxurious suit has been given extra security and provided with an armored Range Rover to transport it to the secret venue.
And in spite of the ongoing economic crisis, the designer is hopeful that this suit will find a buyer.
Exquisite platinum & gold suits made with Vicuna, Pasmina & Qiviuk, the finest wools in the world, to launch in London, with the unveiling of the World’s Most Expensive Suit
Alexander Amosu, luxury designer to the rich and famous and founder of Amosu luxury & customised mobile phones is to launch a luxury bespoke suit collection called ‘Alexander Amosu’; featuring suits made with gold & platinum threads, rare cloths and precious stones. As part of the service Alexander and his tailors will travel to clients anywhere in the world in order to take measurements and fit the suits, this service is exclusive to Alexander Amosu and is not offered by any other tailors.
Collaborating with Dormeuil, purveyors of the world’s finest fabrics, Alexander Amosu is due to unveil the first ‘Alexander Amosu’ suit line and the world’s most expensive suit in Pall Mall on Wednesday 22nd April.
The World’s Most Expensive Suit will cost £70,000 and will be a one-off creation made from gold thread, Himalayan Pashmina, Qiviuk and Vicuna. Each suit will be a work of art and will take in excess of 80 hours to complete and will include over 5000 individual stitches.
Using the world’s most luxurious fabrics is paramount to the quality of Alexander Amosu. One such fibre is Vicuna; a rare wild South American Camelid which only produces enough wool for shearing every three years. Another fibre used in the collection is Qiviuk; the world’s most expensive wool, gathered from the Arctic muskox, which sheds its coat once a year. Together, blended with Pashmina from the high mountain plateaus of the Himalaya’s they create the world’s most luxurious cloth: Vanquish II. Due to the rarity of these fibres and the care which is taken to safeguard the well-being of the animals that produce them (these animals are not hunted but cared for in their natural environments), only enough wool can be gathered to make 300 suits in the world. Other exclusive fabrics selected by Alexander Amosu include Kirgyz White and Pashmina blended with the rarest silks.
The addition of nine 18 carat gold and pave set diamond buttons complete the suit, which is said to move with an unmistakable fluidity. As well as the detail within the suit, customers who indulge in the Alexander Amosu collection will immediately reap the rewards of the luxury lifestyle that accompanies their purchase which include a 1 hour flight by private jet to anywhere in the world by Cloud9, 1 year free wealth management from Cheviot Asset Management and a 24 hr Global Concierge service.
Alexander Amosu will offer discerning clientele the ultimate in bespoke tailoring. A highly trained tailor with over 20 years experience will craft each suit by hand. The Alexander Amosu commitment is for each suit to be a work of art created using only the finest fabric and dedicated workmanship. Bespoke suits are available for both men and women alongside luxury bespoke shirts.
