    Look at the collar, it doesn't even fit properly. You'd think to showcase a suit that
    expensive they'd have found a model who it fit.

    Do you think it really matters how it looks? I doubt potential buyers care.

    I have a new business model. Make only 30 suits a year at $43000.00 each.

    Where do you find clients like this?

    It's the sleeve pitch that bothers me. Look at that.

    For $43k I'd want a lot more crystals than I can see there.

    Except the K-50 is bespoke whereas this Brioni is only made to measure according to the article...

    The K-50 doesn't cost $50,000. Well, it might if you order it in vicuna. I believe the 50 is supposed to indicate the number of hours it usually takes to construct the suit.
