I was at my Tailors picking up last week - he had just received some Loro Piana Vicuna, which he allowed me to check out. It's the most amazing fabric, to the touch.
His cost to land it was $8K (to make one Suit).
Unfortunately, it was a pretty ugly 'Navy Chalkstripe', that he is turning into a DB Suit for one of his larger 'Persian' Clients. He will be charging about $22K.
Call me old fashioned, though I think I would rather fly first class to London or Naples - have a Suit made, a few Shirts, a couple of Umbrella's etc... with that kind of coin.
