Add me to the club. A local indepentent shoe store went out of business had a pile of these and I snagged 3 pair for $15 each. I am set until I kick the bucket.

Maggie's got the best pair, that's when they're really broken in!

…but this time I found the pants in pants aisle. You may have noticed them in the above picture. Apparently the separation was lengthy enough that the whole suit sat around long enough to be marked down 90%.

I get the joke, but yeah, vintage bean chamois cloth shirts (I see that's just a cotton shirt) do perfectly well. Here's my most recent. Not far off from a Kitty in resale, usually dirt cheap, and way more plentiful.

Is it me or does that Kiton label look a bit wonky and sloppy.
Its the first one I've found so I couldn’t tell you conclusively. It's a bit puckered and appears to be hand sewn onto the shirt. Buttons are large diameter, thick MOP and all button holes seem hand made.

Stopping by their sister store I found these Cucinelli’s too (also 25% off). Frustrating thing is that nothing even close to that quality on any of the other racks.

I've had good luck with their older made in USA stuff... sweaters, jackets and pants. Would probably grab a nice older shirt too if i found it.
