SOLD.

Purchased this suit from Mr. Moo two weeks ago, and despite my wishful thinking it does not fit me, and I'm too lazy to have it tailored. $350 pppp shipped to your door, which is at a substantial loss to me. Mr. Moo has given me permission to use his photos (and was kind enough to send them to me), so if they're not showing up appropriately in the thread below, I'll post them as well.

Up for your consideration is a fantastic Kiton suit, ready to go for Spring and Summer (fast approaching, or already here in some places). :)

It is 90% wool and 10% silk - extremely fine hand and a slightly open weave make this a great mid-warm weather suit.

Of course, being Kiton, it is completely hand-made. Everything is hand stitched, hand finished, whatever you would like to call it. It is a wonderful greyish-tan color with slightly more tan chalk stripes.

Two small issues I only noticed while taking photos: 1) The lining at the right shoulder has a few stitches coming apart. This is a 10 minute remedy for a competent tailor, or you can leave as-is. 2) There is a VERY hard to see (I've circled it in one of the photos) blemish or stain at the top of the left sleeve. I don't know where it's from, but it's very, very hard to see. My photo is deliberately making it look as bad as possible.

MSRP is astronomical. Likely north of $6,000. I am asking $515 shipped to the US. PayPal 4%.

Measurements:

Jacket
Chest: 22" across
Shoulders: 18.5"
Sleeve: 24.5" (there is plenty to let out, and the button holes are non-working)
Length: 32"

Trousers:
Waist: 18.5" across
Inseam: 32" with the cuff

Final drop. $350. Must be near record-low for a Kiton suit.
