I was curious what a truly bespoke Savile Row suit would cost. I contacted H. Huntsman and was told that a two piece suit would average about $6,560 (Â£3,584.93). The price would vary considerably depending upon the cloth selected at the time of order. This would include 3 fittings in the US. They offer a 10% discount if it's paid in full at time of order. Also, the VAT can be claimed back. Much more pricey than I thought. If a person earned $200,000 a year they'd still be forking over 3% of their annual income for this suit. Clearly there are just a handful of people who can have a closet full of these suits and not worry about saving for retirement.
