Just kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just the Rolex perpetual calendar with tourbillon and minute repeater.... and a leopard print dial
In all honesty, I like the subtle Rolexes and the fact that they're built like tanks.

No, Oxxford is more concerned with the Brioni shopper than the Kiton client.
Maybe he got sacked by Kiton??

When the AAAC gang had breakfast in Chigaco, there was one man who wore a cashmere sports jacket that was to die for, he stood out form the rest of us. Fit him perfectly, it was amazing, after breakfast, Chuck and I asked him what he was wearing, it was a Kiton. It sure did not suddenly become junk because of the sewing style used on the inards!

I have made my point, they never claimed it was all hand sewn, just hand made.
As Manton said, some of those steps are key steps, but the end result is still great work and world class fabrics that few can touch.



The Truth, in you opinion, who makes an equal or better garment?
@ Zegna This is really hard to say. Perhaps I would give it to Kiton by a nose. Oxxford tends to make me drowsy.

But from any house in the world, who makes an equal or better RTW garment than Kiton?

Thanks for the post. It's good to have some evidence contrary to the hype.

Great post!

Why do so many people get upset with such a post, suggesting ulterior motives or presenting 'incomplete' information? As some suggested, maybe these people who make accusations against the poster have their own interests to protect?

All the poster has done is to open up a coat to display the inner workings. Is this bad?

Informative post. Thanks for sacrificing the Kiton and the detailed pics.

I don't dispute the guts of the jacket, just the innuendo by the manner of the post. There is a big difference. I guess it is the "go for the underdog in me"! God knows what every salesman in every store in every land has ever said about a jacket he is trying to move off the floor and collect his commission on, but Kiton was pretty straight up with me, the rest........ I am certainly not upset and have no vested interest in any way. It sure made an evening at the computer catching up with work a lot more interesting :-)

Completely off topic (but hey, what isn't in this thread), but this machine looks like it might be from a new summer Trad action film, a young Ivy League student named Harris comes face to face with alien machines from outer space that seek to make every jacket darted...

Line up the laser beam, four or five seconds later, your dart is done! Cut, trimmed and sewn from the inside.

Could be.

Alien dart machines? I'd say he needs to get in the sun a little more.

It is a southern conspiracy against anti Trads! Do you have idea what they are secretly injecting into those dart with that laser beam???

Actually, there are a few parts of the inner coat that are hand stitched:
