    Yes, they all are Kiton.

    I purchased it at Saks during the consolidation sale last week for $1400 down from $5995, and it is only the jacket. According to the "formal wear" thread, one can not wear a midnight navy formal jacket without the matching pants.
    Of course Saks claims that it was done only as a jacket, I love the jacket so much, so I called up Kiton in NY and sent them pictures, etc and they found the material in their factory in Italy, and I'm getting matching pants custom made for me. The only issue is waiting the 8 weeks for them to be finished :bigstar:

    I think my issue with doing bespoke shoes, again, is justifying spending $4K - $5K on a pair if I can get RTW EG, JL, G&G in the $700 - $800 range.

    I'm also a little scared of going bespoke on shoes that I won't be able to go back to RTW if I try it once :stirpot:

    i see. well not everyone is asking this price, though. you're still young and will make your decision, when you think the time has come.

    IME people are much quicker to get into bespoke clothing before they commission shoes. Of the people I know who have commissioned bespoke footwear, they all cut their teeth with bespoke tailoring. Since he was still buying OTR suits, I figured bespoke suiting was more approachable. I also put bespoke shoes on a pedestal as there are very few US bespoke footwear options.

    I first dipped my toe into the bespoke world with a pair of shoes. My wife was already buying a pair, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    your humility is endearing, but its time to brace your inner ballser.

    haven't really bought much this year. just have way more stuff than i need so i'm content to just buy pieces that i find exceptional.

    with that said, i think i found one such exceptional piece....
