    The Phoenix NM Last Call got a large shipment of shirts in about 2-3 weeks ago. Lots of Brioni, Lorenzini and a reasonable selection of Kiton. And the seller is from the area.

    I don't recall any 60/40 Kiton blends however. [​IMG]

    Do you think this could be a genuine Kiton shirt. You know what I mean.

    Not a Keeton or a Keaton, but the real thing.

    Here it is:

    From a seller with more than 21,000 negative feedbacks? Call me overly skeptical, but I don't think so.

    It looks just like a Kiton I have: the buttons and collar are exact matches. I would bet that the 60/40 blend line is left over from another one of many machine-gun postings.

    Some ofthe negative feedback is hilarious. "Ordered shirt, received fruit plates" is my favorite.

    (Seriously) could be 60/40 cotton/linen. Maybe the seller doesn't come across stuff like this often and didn't fully comprehend...

    It looks like one of my cotton/linen shirts from Kiton but the photo is so bad who knows...

    To strike out on a tangent . . .

    Some of the best eBay feedback comes from andy46477 who seems to leave random feedback.

    Some recent examples:

    "Corn on the cob is nice, because the cob never shouts GET ME BEER, WOMAN!"

    Left for user Becky8:

    "I'm originally from Japan. Becky8 rhymes with vegetable drawer in Japanese."


    Some folks are left bewildered:

    "Rotilla is a GOOD name for my wife. Don't call her "Hey, STUMPY" again. EVER

    Reply by hammerjammer: I don't understand why this was left in the feedback section for me???

    Some get the joke:

    "You are Barry Manelow! I know you are! I can hear you singing!"\t\t
    \t
    Reply by whoami: I need u today O Andy. U came & u left w/o paying.

    Guess who's bored at work today. [​IMG]

    This is one of the funniest things I've seen on this board in quite a while (since that bit of "shoe porn" where someone -- J? -- brilliantly morphed the picture of a condom package onto a picture of the Lincoln shoe shine tin...). Thanks for the laugh. [​IMG]

    The buttons do kind of look like Kiton but without pictures of the labels it seems a high risk to bid.

    Here's the conclusion of the auction. I guess someone thought it was real!:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    Wrong link, I think. I hope you weren't trying to keep your interest in that suit a secret!

    You are right! Here's the correct link. The shirt went for $56.00 from bargainland_liquidation, so someone must think it's genuine!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    BTW: The other link is to a suit that I was going to post on the sales Thread. It seems like it might be a decent deal for someone. Super 120's Loro Piana fabric, though I've never heard of Silvio Bresciani! Has anyone reading this ever heard of him?

    As I write this the suit is bid to $29.99 with 15 hours left. It might be worth it.

    Perhaps he apprenticed with Sergio Georgini.
