Have you ever wondered why plain looking suits may cost a fortune and yet you could buy just another at a very cheap price at the fashion store just near you?
After reading this, you may decide to invest in one because, it may really be worth the hefty investment.
We won’t get too much into the factory details however. We are going to understand just how it’s made and why you can buy it. I would love to watch every gentleman I meet with new eyes because these Gents have invested a lot in their suits which we should appreciate, right? And ofcourse all Gents shouldn’t be afraid to buy a great suit for themselves because we ladies love smart Gents. Right?
Naturally the cheaper the suit price, the cheaper the fabric and make. If you buy a cheap suit, it basically means the fabric used is cheap fabric that can easily tear or break.
Essentially, with an expensive suit you can expect to observe three key components: fabric, fit, & make.
The fabric quality is easy to distinguish just by feel and having a basic understanding of natural vs. synthetic fibres. Then, there is the fit – with some brands producing ready-made suit jackets that naturally cut sharp on the shoulder and hug in on the waist.
The most defining factor in quality when buying a suit is the craftsmanship used to acquire its actual construction. Suits can be constructed in full canvas, half canvas, or fused suits.
-FULL canvas: made with horse hair and adjusts to body with time. Structure and fabric make this very expensive and durable.
-Half canvas: Good structure with sewn-in canvas piece in chest and the lapel of the jacket. Fused on the bottom part of the jacket. Middle class affordability.
-Fused Suit: Glued inner lining,stiff and doesn’t fit to body. Cheap, low quality suit.
The most expensive suit in the world today is the Stuart Huges Diamond Edition suit at $778,290. This price makes me feel abit dizzy so let’s look more closely at Alexander Amosu Vanquish Bespoke Suit which costs a whooping – $90,953. We have seen this suit around!
Designed by popular luxury fashion designer Alexander Amosu, this suit is made with the help of three unique fabrics – one from vicuna, a South American animal that looks like a llama and shears wool every 3 years, wool made from the fur of Arctic muskox (also known as the world’s most expensive wool) as well as pashmina sourced from the eponymous Himalayan goats. Truly international in its statement, it takes more than 80 hours and 5,000 stitches to make it. The price of the suit additionally goes up thanks to its nine 18-carat gold and pave set diamond buttons.
