The Kiton pick stitching that has been illustrated is all done by machine. This is typical of many high end RTW/MTM Italian lines. Real, hand sewn lining has irregularly spaced stitches. Only some bespoke tailors hand sew the linings. I would guess that RTW/MTM makers do not use hand stitching because much labor would be wasted by taking apart and re-sewing the lining during alterations. I would assume that bespoke tailors would use hand sewing because most of the coat's structure has been set before the addition of the lining, the last step in the process. I personally do not like machine stitching that is made to look like hand pick stitching. IMHO it looks phony. It is the equivalent of thermography instead of genuine engraving. I view the machine stitching as a short-cut selling point so that customers think that they are getting hand stitching. BTW, the hand-sewn lining is just a selling point or nice extra which adds little to the look, longevity, and comfort of the garment. I have had bespoke with both the hand sewn linings and with machine sewn ones (with no visible picking) from the same maker. Unless it matters to you, it doesn't make much of a difference. However, a real, hand sewn lining looks much better than a machine picked one. I personally prefer either the real thing or nothing. I don't think that the presence or absence of the stitching should guide you in your purchases. Cheers.
