The $20,000.00
vicuña sport coat from Zegna. Apparently this fabric is like the Super Bowl, space travel, and a supermodel threesome all rolled into one. Kiton, apparently makes only 100 vicuña suits a year. Zegna makes only 30. Personally, I don't need any item of clothing that costs $20,000.00 unless it makes me bullet proof and able to fly. Just posting for you sartorial elitists to drool over.​

Actually saw a Parisian bespoke tailor, former cutter at Camps de Luca and Smalto, that was making a coat for a client in vicuna.

He told me that he couldn't talk to me in the process because he needed to be very focused to cut the fabric since it cost roughly USD 4,000 per meter. I understood rather well his fear of missing the cutting. it's not like you can order another meter without killing your P&L.
