I own two Kiton suits that I bought 3 years ago on sale at Neiman's. I wear suits to work everyday, though my Kiton's are reserved for special occasions (e.g., weddings, parties, etc.). The rest of my suits are predominantly Canali (great value) and Baldessarini (great discount when the Boss store in my local mall closed). Last week, I bought a linen Borrelli suit from an Ebay seller. When it arrived, I promply bought two more from him. They are, in my opinion, as well made, and in some ways, more to my liking than the Kitons I wear. The fabric, I would say, isn't as "luxurious" feeling as my Kitons, though one of the Borellis does have a silky smooth Kiton feel to it. And I have tried on a linen Brioni suit that was softer linen than the Borrelli I bought online. I took the Borrellis to my tailor today, because I have to get the sleeves altered (he's going from the shoulder, since they have working buttons). When he examined the Borrellis, he said they looked immaculately made to his eye. He asked me what I paid for them, and when I told him, he was somewhat blown away that a suit of that quality could be had for so little. I ended up paying an additional $350 bucks total to get the three suits perfectly fitting, but it was worth it. The Borrellis, much like the Kitons, are light, soft shouldered, and simply feel as if you don't even have a jacket on. The quality of the construction makes them feel as if they mold to your body. Like the Kitons, they have narrow arm holes and tapered sleeves, which I love. The pants, in my opinion, are better made than the Kiton suit pants I own. There appears to be much more handwork on the pockets and zipper area than the Kitons I own (take this for what its worth, as I am only comparing them to the 2 Kitons I have worn and own). And the main thing, at least for me, is they feel more durable than my Kiton suits. Of course the Kitons might be, and someone with more Kiton experience could prove me wrong, but that's just my intuition.
