According to the media, his tailor would be "Georges de Paris", the famous Washington-based tailor (Strauss-Kahn denied). His prices indeed vary from €5000 to €25000 for the finest fabrics. No one really knows if Strauss-Kahn paid €25000 or less; it's just a libellous supposition made by journalists trying to dirty his reputation. They just took the higher price to convey the idea he's a filthy plutocrat - wealth and money are somewhat taboo in France. All this comes in a whole defamatory campaign against him (it started last week, just before the sex scandal). Indeed, Strauss-Kahn was the man to kill... Too popular, too brilliant, too likely to win next year's presidential election. The guy is notoriously "sex-oriented" (I even know a girl who met him at a swingers' party), but obviously not a rapist. Sad story.
