Power-suits set the scene around the dock

THEY might look like regular shirts and jackets but where the likes of Glen Agliotti and Jackie Selebi shop R40000 is the standard price.

THEY might look like regular shirts and jackets but where the likes of Glen Agliotti and Jackie Selebi shop R40000 is the standard price.

The two men have in the past two weeks worn various power-suits to the Johannesburg high court every day.

On Tuesday they rocked up in similar red-and-white ties, which, had they been bought at Grays, their favourite shop in Sandton City, would have cost between R2000 and R3500.

When Sowetan spoke to Grays yesterday, they said the most expensive designer label they stock was Brioni, a high quality import from Italy.

"Brioni uses virgin cotton and all our stock is imported."

According to Agliotti he and the former police commissioner were loyal customers of the shop and were often treated to exclusive and new arrivals.

For all we know the two men could be wearing R60000 each on any given day.

They are both big fans of Stefano Ritchie shirts at just more than R3000 each and Ettiene Aigner shoes at R4000 a pair, depending on the make. The cheapest cufflinks at Grays will sett you back R300.

The two men also frequented Hugo Boss and Harrods in London. A Hugo Boss suit costs no less than R5500.

It's not every man who looks hot and powerful in expensive clothes, though.

Agliotti has a height advantage and a certain Mafia look, but his bullfrog torso body kills the impression.

Selebi, on the other hand, could do with tighter pants and a buttoned jacket, otherwise he might as well be wearing a church uniform. Nothing screams expensive.
