    Any of you who have visited or window-shopped, initial thoughts?  Will people go to Bergdorf Goodman, etc. for Kiton in NYC now that Kiton has its own store?  Are Kiton shoes available yet?  If so, how do they compare to Lattanzi's?

    BG has an exclusive Kiton custom department, and Kiton's NYC store only offers MTM. I think the fact that Kiton offers custom/MTM garments in only Millionaire's Cashmere and Super 150+ cloth is absurd.

    The Kiton store offers only MTM? Â BG offers RTW and MTM...is Kiton doing this to ensure that its store only has to deal directly with "select" clientele? Edit: I interpreted Marc's statement incorrectly as meaning that all of the Kiton store's offerings are MTM only. Â So Kiton's program through BG is true custom? So the Kiton store surely has MTM programs for suits, jackets, pants, vests, shirts and overcoats. Â What else does it offer?

    The Kiton store in NYC does not offer custom; the Kiton dep't at BG offers Kiton custom.

    That is NOT a fact, however.
