    I am really not sure that there is a ceiling to Kiton's prices.

    I bought Kiton back when when it was in the $3-5K range and I really thought I was crazy for buying in at that price. Yet they are amazing suits and very comfortable and surprisingly durable. Lately I see prices at Neimans and my jaw drops to the floor. I guess it has become an ultra-luxury brand. If they can get it then so be it but I'm a bit priced out now.

    I am in the process of interviewing the President of Kiton for SF.
    You will be surprised at some the expenses they incur in order to maintain their highest quality standards. It was very impressive to me.
    I'll post the interview as soon as it's completed.

    Buying out Carlo Barbera can't be cheap.

    That's why Kiton costs so much.

    It looks like prices have skyrocketed across the board in clothing. It's too bad I wasn't buying years ago.
