    Which would you pick; given the money.

    I would pick Kiton Bespoke.

    Saint Andrews sounds very impressive with the horsehair canvas; only a few makers do this? and that's why is very expensive?

    Kiton has the classic Napoli Cut...

    I think they are both good garments but I like the Neopolitan style of Kiton. Very classic.

    Does St. Andrews use that canvas in their purple label items ?

    Horsehair is a staple in quality bespoke. I am not very familiar with RTW lines, but I would be surprised if more than a few of the suitmakers who do fully canvassed work did not use it.

    I would probably choose Kiton in the non-American cut.

    Love both, but the Kiton a bit more. The fabrics and hand are simply incomparable.
