For cottons, using the most commonly accepted numbering system, yarn numbers run from 24's (thickest and...
Quote: Originally Posted by knittieguy Actually it is the other way around. A pompous brand-whore would care about something like thread count, and whether they were winning the thread-count arms race, whereas someone who cares about quality over brand-names doesn't focus on things like that. I couldn't care less about Brioni or Kiton and don't own clothing from either. Furthermore, if you are going to focus on something like thread count, you...

Quote: Originally Posted by kingkv23 I agree with you, the answer for defining a quality shirt depends on many things that you have mentioned- but that is a pretty obvious statement. But if you recall I didn't ask about the quality of the shirts, I had simply asked for the thread count; it was a straightforward question that didn't deserve pompous replies. By the way I found the answer (200 thread count for Kiton) from the Robb Report. Interestingly...
Quote: Originally Posted by East Oakland You know, a government can actually erect trade barriers if it wants to make outsourcing illegal. It hasn't worked out so well for those that have tried, though. I think you are trying to blame big business for consumer behavior. Consumers demand cheap goods and businesses deliver what consumers are asking for -- it's not some evil plot or conspiracy. If consumers demanded better quality and were willing to...

Quote: Originally Posted by bdbb Picked this up on ebay and immediately noticed that the style of ribbing as well as the lettering on the tip is like no other zegna I own or have seen. Unless they've made some new ties like this that I'm unaware of, the conclusion is obvious. The tie is also thin/unsubstantial and is the only one of 5 zegnas I have that doesn't tie a good knot. The seller has of course offered a refund and points to his ample positive...
