The Most Expensive and Least Desirable Suit in the World
Liverpudlian vulgarity-monger Stuart Hall has created yet another ‘most expensive in the world’ item – a £600,000 ($898,742) suit.
Resembling a fancy dress magician outfit, the grey cashmere and silk creation is studded with almost 500 diamonds, totalling 240 carats. Pearly kings and queens have described the result as “underwhelming”.*
Mercifully only three of the suits will be made, one of which has already been snapped up by a buyer in France.
The outfit was described by Mr Hall in The Daily Telegraph as “a timeless classic” guaranteed to “make any man stand out from the crowd”. Cheaper and more elegant alternatives for achieving this include carrying a plastic bucket of gold dust around while screaming loudly, or simply buying a suit made by someone who knows what they’re doing.
Let’s have a look at a few more of Mr Hall’s baubles.
World’s most expensive phone: £1.92 million / $2.88 million
For the man who has everything – except taste – this solid gold iPhone is sprinkled with more than 190 diamonds. Comes with a case made from “real ostrich feet”.
World’s most expensive TV: £1.5 million / $2.25 million
Carved from 28 kilos of rose gold, the 55-inch PrestigeHD Supreme Rose TV is also encrusted with 72 one-carat diamonds and features an inner frame made from alligator skin.
World’s most expensive model car: £2 million / $2.99 million
More than twice the price of the real thing, Hall’s solid gold and platinum Bugatti Veyron model is great for recreating car chases round your mate Paul’s house after school.
