Ok, I give up: Why is Kiton so expensive?

Because theyr Brand stands for Luxury and Craftmansship !
For example Suits start at about 4500 and those who are tailored for you enter at about 8500 and go up to 50`000 for the K50`s

If you know about Suits, Kiton is something to admire and like a dream to get one :)

Also, if one wants vicuna, Kiton is the only one that makes S.C. with that fabric AFAIK.

Brioni, LP and even Caruso do Vicuña as well. Definitely not just Kiton.

I saw a Lanvin (made by Caruso) 100% Vicuña SC for $20k.

LP sells vicuna cloth, I wasn't aware that they make S.C. with it. As for vicuna S.C made by Brioni, Caruso and Lanvin, I have not seen those in stores. The 2 vicuna (blended with cashmere) S.C. that I own are both Kiton.

I was in the Kiton store in Hong Kong and looked at a pair of grey wool trousers. They were nice but no better than the Zegna pair I already have in the same colour. They were 1200 Euro. The lady tried to convince me to try them on . I told her it's a waste of time because I have no intention of paying that price for them. I said I will wait for the sales. Quite haughtily she said "sir we do not have sales" . Very funny

i have a friend worth over $200M. about 10% of his interest alone would make it impossible to spend on just clothes. brands like Kiton are for the rich who don't even care but just want the highest quality.

i question more about why people worth that much don't live in more extravagant homes/apartments and have fleets of supercars

I’ve been reading through some posts and felt I could answer this for any future readers.

I have a few friends and friendly acquaintances who are certainly capable of living in extravagance. The reason they don’t, I find, is that the process of getting there humbled them beyond reason and what they tend to value is more community and intrinsic qualities. Not to say they won’t have their hobbies, like hifi systems, a nice vehicle, or some pet startup. The ones with nice clothing either have the natural interest and would do it regardless or they buy high-end because they need/want to look nice, but do not have the time to do all the research in the world to discern for themselves. If you’re the CEO of say an oil and gas conglomerate, outside family you don’t really get time to read forums. If anything, they may be lucky to have an informed friend or colleague who lends the advice.
