    Billionaire? I'd just hire a tailor on staff if sartorial matters are such an integral part of my life.

    I would make sure the tailor was a tailoress, particularly an attractive one. That way you can get a great suit made, and with a bit of luck, blow thy beans to kingdom come (or should I say cum) [​IMG].

    Ingenius!

    That's a great way to make sure your tailor knows your measurements off the top of her head...

    in response to the OP

    Tom Ford, Kiton, and Brioni, etc (really, whatever I'm in the mood for) for all the luxury FU items...

    Mall brands for the rest. Cause they're the ones with all the hot SAs... [​IMG]

    I'd go to Huntsman, Henry Poole or Dege & Skinner.

    I would try all the top tailors in Europe. I really want to see the house styles and handiwork among the top suit makers.

    In Itay, Rubinacci, Ambrosi (trousers), Kiton, Attolini, Caraceni.

    Savile Row has a long list, but I really want a mix of the old guard and the newer tailors. Henry Poole, Anderson and Sheppard, Huntsman, Kilgour, Richard Anderson, Timothy Everest, probably a few others.

    Camp de Luca in France.

    for RTW, I would only buy Attolini. Some of their stuff fits me as well as bespoke.

    That will disappoint Mark given he just bought half the stock of Liverano

    Then you won't be a billionaire for long. I'd imagine most western billionaires can't touch a woman without some sort of legal team standing by.

    Money no object? No Problem.

    I'd have my day to day suits & trousers made by Anderson & Sheppard, with overcoats by Huntsman.

    Turnbull & Asser bespoke for shirts. Drakes for Ties

    Cleverley Bespoke for shoes, as well as JLP, Church's & Tom Ford

    'Going out' suits, lounge suits and dinner suits from Tom Ford

    Accessories by Tom Ford, Bvlgari, Tiffany's, Cartier

    Watches from the usual suspects.

    Apart from the obvious Savile Row/Naples extravaganza, I would significantly increase the turnover of Drakes, Lobb, G&G, and Charvet. And I would take my nice cloth addiction really to town.
    And take over/subsidize a Harris tweed mill. Let's give something back to the industry.
