This is where sf gets a little silly. Like for example some people here telling quality of shirts from a photo, from a manufacturer they don't even have in their country, probably never seen a shirt from them in their life. These are not low quality shirts, sure they are better things to buy and I will buy them when I can afford them. I can appreciate the advice about the ties though.

very nice, and thanks for the comments on the stores-- I noticed in past posts that the typical kiton cut seemed a bit longer and bulkier on your frame, so hoping the trimmer cut is a good match for ya. I saw a new shirt model for mtm in NYC in April, slimmer cut and great looking collar, but the try-on had to be shipped somewhere before I got a chance to return and try it on.

Just rec'd an email from Saks: the kiton black label suit and Isaia shirt just arrived!

I didn't try on any jackets at the Kiton store in Paris. I wanted to get away from the arrogant, condescending salesman ASAP so I got the blue shirt for which I went and got out of there. The London store couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. I went in not planning on buying anything other than maybe some sort of pink shirt. While my wife was going through the ties and pocket squares I started looking around and found a 13 micron wool navy jacket that was cut like the one I ended up getting. It was a little too expensive and while I liked it, I just didn't have to have it. Then they found the cashmere jacket I bought which was just a slightly lighter shade of navy and a lighter fabric and I was sold.

Compared to my jackets from the Kiton store in Las Vegas I'd say it fits about the same in the shoulders, maybe every so slightly more snug, certainly a little narrower in the waist which is really nice, and the sleeves are much narrower, which I also really like. I can't compare either of them to how Kiton fits in the major department stores because I pretty much refuse to shop for anything other than casual clothing in those stores.

I was in Rome yesterday and stopped at the Ferrari store.  They had hand rolled silk PS's that were actually quite tasteful.  I thought of Spoo, then I thought that it might be a bit gauche, then I thought "f*ck it, if I had a Ferrari I'd wear one."  Who cares about gauche in a Ferrari?

I haven't bought anything clothing related in quite a while now.
