Who made this suit?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Here is a test of your sartorial senses. Saw this photo in an old article and am curious if anyone can identify who made it. Also, any critiques.

I don't know who made it, but it doesn't look like anything special.

Maybe some kid in China made it. Who knows...

I don't think so either. I'm just curious if anyone can recognize it.

^He was probably trying to trick people and it worked. It looked like a crappy suit to me and I guess it is if you can't even tell it's well made.

I assumed the same, but if it looks like shxt, then it's shxt...doesn't matter which 3rd world factory it came out of.

I knew it was Kiton since I read the article. That's where I got the photo. After reading the article's praise of Kiton, I thought I would see if anyone would even recognize the suit as special. Clearly not.

As quality increases linearly, the price we pay for the suits increases exponentially. Not to mention that if people are willing to continuously pay $4650+ for Kiton, then they will continue to charge that much and more.

I'm sure more people would rather get a bespoke suit, rather than OTR or MTM Kiton
