10. Bespoke From Brooks Brothers, $14,500
Once upon a time, a bespoke Brooks Brothers suit cost $14,500. This one-off customized suit was made from a fabric blend of Mongolian cashmere and super 200s merino wool, which is the finest wool in the world.
Before filing for bankruptcy, every suit from Brooks Brothers was unique, as no suit is woven until an order is placed. The weaving was performed on 100-year-old looms located in England – taking around six months per suit to make.
Today the brand isn’t what it once was. Watch the video above to find out more.
