British Pakistani Master Tailor Arshad Mahmood has produced a suit that he  claims to be one of the world’s most expensive tailor-made suits priced at  $129,000. Arshad Mahmood, who has offices  in London and Hong Kong, originates from Mirpur in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan, and  learnt the art of tailoring originally in the city of Karachi in early 80s.

With 22-carat gold stitching, a gold waistcoat and diamond-encrusted gold  buttons, the one-off was sold in Hong Kong on May 29 for HK$1 million  (US$129,000).

According to the South China Morning Post, It took Apsley  Tailors 200 hours to make the suit from the finest wool, with gold woven into  the fabric.

The world’s most expensive suit is believed to have been  made by Stuart Hughes and Richard Jewels of Manchester, England.

The R. Jewels Diamond Edition is made from a blend of cashmere wool and silk,  contains more than 480 diamonds and costs $890,000.

Apsley’s suit beats what was the world’s second-most expensive suit, designer  Alexander Amosu’s $103,000 creation with 9 diamond buttons  set in 18-carat gold.
