If you spent an entire day standing in a queue to apply for a DDA flat costing Rs 30 lakh, you may not be amused to discover others can spend as much on a suit.

The world’s costliest suit, priced at Rs 30 lakh for a four-metre fabric length, arrived in Delhi on Tuesday.

Holland and Sherry, the Scotland-based textile giant that has Hollywood stars Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise for clients, is behind the initiative.

Through a retail arrangement with Digjam, Holland and Sherry plan to introduce a limited edition of the ‘Vicuna Aymara’ suit fabric. The fleece, perceived as the rarest, costliest natural fibre in the world, is

obtained from a vicuna, a long-legged slender necked mammal found in South America’s Andes Mountains, particularly in Peru.

Holland and Sherry marketing director Malcolm Campbell said just 60 metres of super-premium fabrics — including merino wool; Scottish merino and Australian wool — in the formal wear, casual wear and evening wear ranges would be brought to India.

Do you have pockets deep enough to shell out lakhs for premium fabrics, apart from exorbitant tailoring charges? Suit yourself.
