    Here is a test of your sartorial senses. Saw this photo in an old article and am curious if anyone can identify who made it. Also, any critiques.

    I don't know who made it, but it doesn't look like anything special.

    I don't think so either. I'm just curious if anyone can recognize it.

    ^He was probably trying to trick people and it worked. It looked like a crappy suit to me and I guess it is if you can't even tell it's well made.

    I assumed the same, but if it looks like shxt, then it's shxt...doesn't matter which 3rd world factory it came out of.

    I knew it was Kiton since I read the article. That's where I got the photo. After reading the article's praise of Kiton, I thought I would see if anyone would even recognize the suit as special. Clearly not.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/205038/ok-i-give-up-why-is-kiton-so-expensive

    As quality increases linearly, the price we pay for the suits increases exponentially. Not to mention that if people are willing to continuously pay $4650+ for Kiton, then they will continue to charge that much and more.

    I'm sure more people would rather get a bespoke suit, rather than OTR or MTM Kiton
