    Just curious, why do you question the authenticity?

    Aren't the sleeve buttons supposed to be unfinished?

    Redardless of authenticity, I probably wouldn't buy it since it's way too high fastening.

    Because, I rarely see Kiton label stitched as the picture shown. Also, the cut of the suit is highly unusual looking for Kiton suit. Well, I have seen fake Attolini's .. now I have seen fake Kiton.

    Given that the seller is advertising Zegna cloth suits as Zegna, I would stay away. Spidey sense is telling me there's something fishy about those Kiton suits. I'm no expert on Kiton but they don't look legit to me.

    That is most definitely not a real Kiton. It's a Kiton label sewn into a cheap suit.

    Maybe Kiton got tired of using their logo Bemberg lining and decided to do the machine pick stitch... could happen.

    I need to look into that whole Spidey Sense thing....

    I believe this seller sold a 38R Kiton, exact same fabric, not too long ago ... went for nearly $1000 US i think.

    Definitely looks fake to me. Lapel does not roll properly and its button is cheap looking. Very suspicious.

    I'm far from expert, and trying to judge from a picture is pretty dicey, but doesn't the way the fabric falls along the lapel and around the buttons look a bit on the stiff and coarse side?

    What I saw was:
    Lapel roll strangely flat.
    Buttons on the sleeve too far apart for Kiton.

    Thanks for the training excercise.

    Aren't these the same suit?

    One was sold as a Ferre and the other was Kiton...
