FWIW the horse looks to be facing outward in the picture rather than to the side like your drawing. 

Yea, kind of a 3/4 angle.

Also, this is the leather on the back heel, looks a bit more distinctive

Ahh, well my aunt works at the University of Rochester. I've actually never been there, though. My wife wants to visit sometime.

No gimmicks like key- tohn etc. Source: Napolitan tailor who refuses to work on the suit not to mess perfection.
In other news picked up a pair of very good shape gravati loafers and nwt noname US made linen pants, total 14.99 plus tax. Passed two T and A shirts, ugly and expensive, one PINK white shirt, exact fit but I was too lazy to go back and pick after forgetting it, and a Borrelli tie, too wide and expensive for 7 bucks besides I have zillions of stripes. Several smaller coach belts, orphan golden Fleece BB, and several BB suits too big, not worth my 24.99. I also passed Alden for BB loafers for 10 bucks bc needs soles.

I asked my wife as well because she's a fluent Italian speaker. She said that northern Italians will say it slightly different than southern Italians. Her dialekt is from Tuscany and she says it as "Key-Ton" I believe. I could possibly write it in phonetic transcription, but I believe that as long as you fake it you'll be pretty close.

Hans is correct. Key-ton, with the ton pronounced like "tone" not "ton."

^Sorry, I think that was a typo, it should have been a "tone." When I asked her what southern Italians would say, she simply made a more exaggerated pronunciation/face.
