Kiton cotton

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Earlier in the week I was at Bergdorf's NY sale and looking at polo shirts, the sale was fairly extensive, there were dress shirts, sport shirts, and sweaters. I am not sure of pants and shoes though, anyways I bought a grreat Brioni linen sport shirt marked down to $129 from $360. The shirt I am writing about though was a blue/red striped,short sleeved, Kiton 100% cotton polo. I swear this was softer than any cashmere I have ever felt. Honestly, how can one companies cotton be so much softer than others? I am not exagerating here, this was softer than cashmere, but even marked from $660 to $340 it was a little steep for me and also Kiton runs small and a large was like a medium ,too small.

Kiton tends to buy small batch exclusive cottons. Some of their dress shirt cotton is woven on a Riva silk loom for extra fineness. I'm not sure where they exactly buy their polo cotton from.

Kiton has the most remarkable fabrics I've come across. The "hand" of their fabric is always pleasing to experience.
Now, I'm sorry I didn't get to the Bergdorf sale.

I wish I was in NYC some days to check out these fine stores. I should be there on business in the next few weeks, just in time for full retail at $600.
