    That is my fear. I know my suit was around the 6K us dollars. While its expensive... and on the same price level as Huntsman, I can see the handwork and the attention to detail Lorenzo put into the suit. I am scared for the price of the sport jacket.

    "Even the lining of the suit is a one off, specially commissioned, pure high grade silk. We can print anything you desire on the lining; a favourite photo, image or let our designers create something unique for you."

    Ultimate Bespoke now opens up the possibility of having a jacket made with a photo of Foo on the lining. This pays for itself several times over.

    I think there is an upcharge from the base price for using that one

    It isn't that bad though, the charge is equal to about 5cm more of regular bemberg.

    Quite all right. It has been much, much worse.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that in the end Cifonelli was more reasonable than I expected.

    "Most of all, you'll have an amazing experience, and the knowledge that you are wearing the world's most expensive bespoke suit."

    Ah, the all-important knowledge that you're wearing the GDP of a small African nation.

    I'm bumping this thread to hear about recent experiences with Cifonelli when they travel to NYC. How frequently do they come and how many fittings do they typically require for the first garment? Any comments on customer service?
    thanks

    What's the price? I know I can shoot them an email, but if you have it with you, and respond quick enough, I figure I can get the information off you.

    A 4-month old email from Cifo:

    "Following your request, the price for a bespoke two pieces suit including fabrics is 5.200 EUR
    If you are providing the fabric, the price is 4.600 EUR"

    Needless to say, call/email to confirm.
