Never tried a Kiton, but Borrelli's have never been good to me. Their stitching comes loose very easily. I've never even so much as had to resew a button on any of my Lorenzinis, and I've been wearing the brand for over 8 years.

My experience has been the polar opposite; strange.

Me neither.

I bought a Canali once never again.

The bad stitching on the Borrelli's may come from the counterfeit Borrelli's sold on Ebay. That is where I am having a problem. Nice shirt, nice fabric, horrible stitching. My real Borrellis's (with the crest) never lose a stitch.

Borrelli stitching seems to be very inconsistent. Recently, I had lunch with someone wearing a Borrelli shirt, and commented that his collar button seemed very well sewn, with a nice, secure-looking shank, while mine looked like an afterthought, and he agreed. Both shirts were relatively new, made recently, and came through Borrelli boutiques.

Not in my case, as I've never bought a Borrelli (or any other shirt) off of eBay.

That is just because I am local and they know I will show up at the store to pester them.

I checked after lunch, and mine are about half and half.

---- I'll disagree strongly. I've seen custom shirts that fit perfect yet were made out of thin cardboard like fabric. You have to have:
1. Quality materials
---its the basis for all looks. You can't build with a weak foundation.Something a tailor can work with if RTW also
2. Construction
3. Style
4. Fit

They are like the legs for a table top.

Perhaps you could lodge a complaint through the signature of the seamstress in the enclosed booklet.

Perhaps the wash to get the blood and cigarette stains out loosened them up.
