    I am in the market for a Kiton blazer. I easily fit into 52L (US 42L) off the rack. For a relatively simple piece (e.g., light gray cashmere), would it be better to buy off the rack or go MTM? Can anyone suggest a retailer in Chicago?

    If a 52L fits you perfectly, why pay the premium for MTM? Kiton MTM is really expensive. 52L is a common enough size that if you look long enough, you will eventually find something you like on sale, and save literally thousands of dollars.

    Does Neiman Marcus in Chicago sell Kiton? Are there other peddlers in the Chicago area?

    George Green on Oak Street and SAKS men's store on MI Ave. carries Kiton - good luck

    I checked out George Greene in Chicago. The Lazzanti's available there were absolutely beautiful. Made me want to stuff all my shoes down the garbage disposal, take out a line of credit on my house, and go shopping.

    By the way, Ultimo on Oak Street no longer sells menswear, for the past three years now.
