Are the latter much more delicate? If that's the case, then I think I'll stick to kiton in the future. I like to be able to clean the shirts...
I had to expand the trousers of a borrelli suit once, as they were way to slim (leg, seat and waist). Because of all the hand work (which my tailor replaced with new hand work), it was quite expensive. The result, however, was excellent. I also had to do the opposite with a pair of Kiton suit trousers. I had bought the suit in the US, and as a result the trousers were way too big everywhere than in the waist. My tailor told me he had to recut them and get rid of all the...
I have a very similar pair from mantellassi, and I love them! I thought from the beginning that the occasions for using them would be limited (for similar reasons as given above), but they turned out to be my favourite pair! I found the perfect belt to match, and I use them regularly with grey suits. I also use them with navy pinstripe suits sometimes, and they are a great way to bring life to office/business wear. Good buy, I would say!
I wonder if the use of t-shirts under shirts is particularly popular in America. I work in Europe, but at a place with numerous nationalities. I have noted that the ones I observe with t-shirts under their shirts tend to be from the US or Canada (not always, but definitely overrepresented). In my view, it looks bad. I would compare it to white socks. I realise that there may be a function to it as someone mentioned above, but then I'd make sure that it is a slim fitting...
12 suits (in order of personal faviourites: 2xAttolini, 2xKiton, 1xBorrelli, 1xIsaia, 2xBrioni, 2xArmani, 2xBoss) 3 sport coats (borrelli, Corneliani, Brioni), I rarely use them though 10-15 shirts that I use regularly, 50+ shirts that rarely see daylight 4 pairs of shoes (2xMatellassi, 2xShipton&Heneage) and a coule of Boss rubber soled shoes for wet winter days 4 belts (one for each pari of shoes...) Countless ties, but only a few that I actually like. This counting...

I don't have that much experience with Borrelli, but get this feeling too. Whenever I am in the...
Swiss shirt maker Bruli has a slim line that is really nice. not sure if/where you can get them in US though. Paul Smith's slim fit line is also good, but is of lesser quality than Bruli (in my experience, at least), which is similar in price.
found an article that explains the relationship and difference btw Kiton and Sartorio: http://www.dnrnews.com/site/article.php?id=1213
