I know it's around because several other MN thrifters have found multiple Kiton pieces. Neiman-Marcus in Minneapolis sells Kiton.

Not really valuable (<$50), but the cover's identical, and it'll make a great reading copy. Plus, I already own the hardback. I think I have that same edition, but after the four years of on and off attempts it took me to get through...

Otherwise, I'm not sure what I would wear my mid-light gray windowpane sport coat with.

I think that's a nice jacket. It's an older label design, but the jacket itself doesn't look dated to me. I have two sport coats with this label, both made in Switzerland, one of which is a silk/cashmere blend with the same Silk & Cashmere tag as yours. I wouldn't call this the steal of the year, but a very nice looking and well made coat.
