London: Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak had his name stitched into the stripes of swanky custom-made suits for around £10,000 (Dh59,849) per suit.

Magnified pictures in The Sun revealed tiny white letters spelling out ‘Hosny Mubarak' — an alternative spelling of the former president's name — over and over again to form the vertical stripes.

The fabric would have taken around three months to weave, with a two-piece costing in the region of £10,000, according to cloth manufacturer Holland & Sherry from London's Savile Row, which makes bespoke pinstripes.

Mubarak was seen wearing the garment shortly before he stepped down.
