Tailored to Perfection: The Suits You Need to Know About

An immaculately tailored, two-piece tuxedo, is the epitome of men’s evening wear. The suit is a men’s fashion staple worn as a statement of luxury and confidence. Many iconic designers tap into the popularity of stylish celebrities to bring the best of black-tie attire to the world’s attention.

Ralph Lauren

The world-famous fashion designer Ralph Lauren is worth A$9.7 billion thanks to his award-winning menswear collection. While a household name in all of the men’s fashion, the Ralph Lauren suit exhibits his signature of clean lines and subtle, but fanciful prints. With some three-piece suits costing around A$4,500 – a long list of celebrity devotees including David Beckham, Chris Pine and Charlie Hunnam are enamoured with the fit and tailor from this well-known and loved label.

Giorgio Armani Collezioni Tuxedo

The Italian luxury fashion house of Armani tailors some of the finest men’s pieces including a slick and stylish tuxedo. The Armani Collezioni Tuxedo is made in Italy composed of 84 per cent jacquard virgin cool wool and 16 per cent mohair cool wool. The one-button Tuxedo exudes class – probably why Armani’s clientele includes; George Clooney, Eric Clapton and Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Brioni

If you’re a Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond fan then you might recognise the Bironi Tuxedo. The handmade dinner suit is the work of designers Gaetano Savini and Nazareno Fonticoli costing close to A$65,000. The company, founded in 1945, delivers some of the most expensive suits money can buy. The best is a luxury tuxedo made with Vicuna fur and hand-stitched with white gold. Other famous faces of the Italian brand include actor Brad Pitt, who has his own line with the company.

Cavalier Rockefeller Vanquish II

The South African brand is named after the renowned Cavalier family. While it’s known for making remarkably expensive suits, its luxurious Cavalier Rockefeller Vanquish II is easily the finest, selling for over A$94,00. Made of rare, expensive, and legendary Vanquish II fabric, the hand-made masterpiece comes with a pure silk lining and 4-carat diamond buttons set in African platinum. There are only five pieces available in the world – not surprising when one suit takes around 200 hours to be craft by hand.

Kiton

At the high end of the luxury, the tuxedo scale is luxury clothing company Kiton. The Italian fashion house established in 1956, specialises in tailor-made suits and tuxedos that typically cost up to A$27,000. Its top-of-the-line piece, the K-50, is considered one of the most expensive tuxedos in the world costing over A$67,000. It’s made out of Merino sheep wool and takes 45 tailors up to 25 hours to stitch each piece.

Jay Kos

For thoroughly unique tuxedo styles, New York designer Jay Kos is known for combining old and new styles, colours and patterns, to create original pieces. Far from the traditional tuxedo maker, Kos uses vintage fabrics and luxury textures fashioned into modern designs. A staple for the world’s most stylish hip hop artists such as Diddy and Andre 3000, the Jay Kos Tuxedo fetches nearly A$4,000.
