If you think buying a four-figure jacket is extravagant — think again! We’ve featured some pretty expensive jackets over the years, but all of them cannot hold a candle to these top 5 most expensive jackets ever made!

5. The Vanquish by Brioni

Bond. James Bond. That’s right! The Vanquish suit (priced at $43,000) has many loyal fans, including 007 himself. Made from two of the world’s rarest fibers, Qiviuk and Vicuña.

Qiviuk fiber is so rare that the coat cannot be shorn and fibers can only be gathered from what the animal naturally sheds. Vicuña, on the other hand, is shorn only every three years. There are only 150 existing pieces available worldwide.

1. The Thriller Jacket

The top spot belongs to a record-breaking, moon-walking fellow … the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. This iconic red-and-black leather jacket was worn by MJ in his 1983 “Thriller” music video.

The jacket (also autographed by Michael) was sold in a private auction at Julien’s Auctions, a California-based auction house specializing in items owned by celebrities, in 2011 for a whopping $1.8 million!
