I remember a few weeks back we were discussing why there's a price difference between the Kiton 7-folds at Ben Silver and stores like Bergdorf, Saks, etc. The Kiton ties which Ben Silver stocks cost a little less. The Kiton ties I bought from Ben SIlver are not self-tipped, while those available from Bergdorf and Saks are self-tipped.
The Holland and Sherry fabric is not extremely expensive since, as I understand, they usually do it in Super 130s.
Scabal has all kinds of crazy fabrics - Lapis, Gold, Diamond, cashmere denim, Super 200s/silk, Super200s/vicuna...
My question is, where do the oil-rich princes who order lots of suits and hundreds of shirts in a single visit to custom clothiers ever wear these clothes?
