Speaking of Kiton shoes... - Page 2

Kiton - Just entered the shoe market for fall 2003 when Ciro Paone bought a small shoemaking operation near Naples and moved the 10 or so workers into a corner of his Kiton clothing workrooms. They seem to be completely hand-made, with styles somewhat like Lattanzi but lacking some of the finesse. Priced up from $1500.

I love everything Kiton I've tried, but more often than not I find the patterns on their sportcoat fabrics leaning toward the absolutely horrid. Up at George Greene they had a shitload of leftovers from spring 04: orange, lime and sky blue plaid. What's the deal with that?

JohnApril, how much were the Spring '04 Kiton leftovers at George Greene going for?

Somewhere in the neighborhood of $2800-3200. Yeah, I know.

[When you go into the mens suits], look at the forth picture of the orange overcoat - look at the lapels, they are pathetic, it just doesn't sit right. the overcoat looses it's shape.
Marc, our resident 'shoo' and high end clothing expert..... do you even realize that the jacket of which you speak is made of leather?

Yes l do realize that the overcoat/jacket is made of leather. The jacket is terrible; just look at it. lt looks like a cheap trench coat l bought 10 years ago. lt doesn't drape (l think that's the word) at all. lt has no shape. Terrible. Many of the jackets look too short at the sleaves as well. The shoulders look boxy in some pictures as well. l thought Kiton had a soft natural shoulder; obviously this is not always the case [when you look at the Kiton website]. Good to see you back T4phage, l thought you had pissed off for good. Regards: the shooman.

Marc, do you have any idea how very very fine goatsuede tailors and drapes? Unlike suits which have a canvas, such leather coats do not, hence the softness and unstructured look. Why the lapels of that particular jacket is in such a postion, because it was postioned like that. You can position it in any other way.... btw, what happened to your Lobb 'bespokes' made on one of several lasts that you have comissioned from your local bootmakers?
