Never got all the drooling over Kiton in this thread.
I mean, the price tag is impressive and finding rare stuff is always cool. But beyond those things, there's just not much that's terribly interesting about the clothing itself.
But who wants a perfectly fitting linen shirt? Let loose.
Related: my Uniqlo shirts have gotten progressively larger the past 18 months (without me getting larger). Went from medium slim-->medium regular-->large slim-->large regular. Feels so much better to loosen up.
Hey if you like it, then it's worth something Finally got around to cleaning the trashed Jasper Morrison Air Chair I found. Magic Eraser + WD 40 + car wax worked wonders. Also finally got a bunch of new plants to fill all the cool ceramics I've been finding (this one: 6" 1960s Finnish). You know you're broke when even your Ikea stuff is thrifted :/ But for $5 this table will do until its handsomer Knoll cousin comes along.
$50 for the Drakes. $20–30 for Ferragamo and Borrelli ties. $150–200 for Isaia, Corneliani, Jil Sander, Issey Miyake suits.
I was only there 10 minutes since my coworker with me wasn't really into it, so I didn't go through everything (which was fine, since it was all too pricey anyway).
In Manhattan for a meeting and had time to hit one shop. First tie I grab: Drakes. Second: Drakes. First suit: Jil Sander. And on and on and on. Never seen such a concentration of awesome stuff in one stop.
But the prices. Holy smokes. Stupid expensive :(
I was bidding on that 52 but lowered my max bid last minute. Got cold feet about the restocking fee and the weird sleeve measurement. How high was your bid out of curiosity? Wondering how close I got. If it doesn't work out please let me know
Edit: Looks like my eBay sniper didn't work anyway. Argh.
