Jun '10
As per British-based designer, Stuart Hughes, world's most expensive suit for men, will be up for sale for about £600,000.

This suit is termed to be the ultimate in luxury fashion, till date. The tailor-made suit has been crafted using cashmere wool, silk and diamonds and took almost over 600 hours to manufacture.

The 39-year-old, Liverpool based designer, informed that approximately 500 diamonds have been embedded within the suit. Each of this single cut gem is about 0.5 cents, is of colour G, VS2 quality and all of them sum to 240 carets.

Till date, Hughes has designed only three of these suits for the purpose of sale for exactly, £599,999. A French-buyer has already purchased the first one in size 41.

For this suit, Hughes has worked with Richard Jewels to manufacture four exclusive suits. The suit is dark grey in colour and according to Hughes, it will make any man stand out in the crowd.

He further added that, this was the first time ever, that he was working with apparels and that it was a big step for him.

Hughes believes that this is a timeless classic, which is both comfortable and wearable and most importantly, an ultimate in luxury fashion.

Jewels on the other hand, is intending to develop a luxury brand, which will capture both the eyes and hearts of the customers. With the help of our goods, we are trying to solidify one's individuality.

Hughes further clarified that, 10 percent of the sales will be donated to the relief fund for Haiti.

Till dates, Hughes has created world most expensive iPhones, luxury Nintendo gadgets, television sets and a model car, gold Bugatti Veyron.
