Yes, mid-level quality at best. They were around as early as the 1960s and still around in the 1980s, but ranked with the likes of Roblee and not the "better" American-made brands like Florsheim. That said, they may or may not have had better quality lines that I haven't seen.

Same here, I just want to find a Kiton! I don't care if it's a tie or a cashmere suit - I just want to find a damned Kiton piece! Helluva score on that, Swan Song!

Nice. Korshak was the store that originally sold the one I found, too.

True, but when mine didn't fit I paid for most of an HD TV with the proceeds. Even had it fit I would have worn the Kiton a couple of times a month (maybe), but the TV is used every day.

picked up a pendleton and Gant shirt. I really like the way Gant shirts fit me, they have a slimmer cut to them.

Tomorrow is half price day!!!!!

I found 2 Oxxford suits today, both from 2002. One of them is black, slubbed silk. I'm not sure what you would call the other fabric pattern. It is a gray and black checkered pattern of very small squares, so it looks solid, but if you look very close you see the squares. I would say 20-25 squares per linear inch. Here's my dilemma. They are from the same gentleman(name inside), who apparently lost, or gained a significant amount of weight at some point. One of the suits fits me(the silk), the other is too large. There seems to be about a 4" difference in the pants and jacket. Is this something that would require major reconstructive surgery, or is it even feasible? Also found - A lovely pair of brown Artioli tassle loafers - leather on the bottom part of the upper and suede on the top part All Clad food mill NWT
