The indulgences of the rich can take many forms. Expensive jewellery, luxury cars and yachts, sports teams -- if it’s expensive and exclusive, there’s bound to be a billionaire somewhere who will buy it.
For example, this week the world’s most expensive suit went on sale in Britain -- a $1.06 million number made by designer Richard Jewels and jeweller Stuart Hughes. The hand-stitched cashmere, wool and silk blend two-piece apparently took 600 man hours to put together, before being embellished with 480 diamonds. Only thee have been made, and one has already been snapped up by a lucky French buyer (suit size: 41 long), so you’d better get in quick.
