    Don a suit from the new Domenico Vacca Limited Edition (www.domenicovacca.com) collection, and you can feel confident that you will not encounter anyone wearing the same garment. When Vacca describes his new suits and jackets as "the essence of exclusivity," he is not exaggerating. Launched in September, the series features designs that are each limited to no more than 12 examples. Vacca’s tailors make the suits—by hand, in Italy—from fabrics woven just for the Limited Edition. The suits are sold through Domenico Vacca stores in New York, Beverly Hills, Palm Beach, and Bal Harbour. They range in price from $4,600 to $4,900.
