    Today I droped by Harry and there was president from Kiton. He was an italian still had very thick italian accent. What a nice man. He certainly know how to make any customer feel like a millionare. Almost made me to buy Kiton at retail price...

    Anyways long story short, he grabed one the jacket off the rack, rolled it like pastery.. put it on the floor and he stomped on it for decent 30 sec or so .. this was $7000CAD suit jacket... He unrolled it and showed how their shoulder and chest pieces do not get distressed by physical force that easly. I was more amazed about his showmanship. But what a suit. Kiton fitted great on me... I think it may have looked better than Attolini ..

    You got the "Massimo Bizzocchi" treatment--and it is a pleasure to be on the receiving end. He is a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and charming gentleman, largely responsible for Kiton's success in the US. Paone is also a wonderful salesman for Kiton, but he doesn't speak a word of english.

    Yeah .. I think Massimo sound right.. he was very pleasent to talk to .. I also like his answer when I asked him about trend .. and his reply was .. it's all in my head. Suit of Kiton caliber is a piece of art. Piece of art always looks good ..
    something along that line ...

    Kiton is more baggy than Attolini, or every other Neapolitan labels for that matter. Dunno if this applies only to the Kitons sold in North America or also to those in Europe.

    I have seen several Kiton models. The model sold at Scott Hill in Los Angeles is more fitted than the model sold at Wilkes Bashford. The "K" model--Kiton's "custom"--is as fitted as it gets. I'm not sure what model is sold at Harry.

    The ones I tried on was nicely fitted suit .. but I liked Kiton's drape better than Attolini. I am really thinking of getting Kiton at retail .. but when I do .. I want Harry Rosen himself assisting my suit fitting [​IMG]

    Signor Bizzochi is the epitome of a fine Italian gentleman; Naturlaut and I had a wonderful time discussing our mutual passion with him. koji
