How costly is Modi's personalised suit?
The fabric for the suit, with NARENDRA DAMODARDAS MODI woven all over it in gold thread, most probably came from London based merchants Holland & Sherry. According to the report the cloth alone would have cost somewhere between £2,500 (Rs231875) to £3,000(Rs 278250).

Based on that, and the high end tailor Tom James, to whom Holland & Sherry supplies fabric, the British newspaper speculated the final cost of the suit to be around £10,000 (Rs 9,27,500).
However, the cloth was stitched in India at a cost of around Rs 60,000 making the whole suit's worth close to Rs 3,00,000.
Both the fabric supplier and tailor refused to confirm Modi as a client, or the price. But Holland & Sherry “[couldn’t] think of anyone else who would do something like that” and Tom James said “I believe we are the only ones doing that [style]”.
