Walk into a high-end department store in the United States or Europe, and it's almost certain that the finest ready-to-wear clothing they sell is made by Kiton. Kiton's basic suits cost between five and ten thousand dollars at retail, more than most Savile Row bespoke. They're known for exceptional fabrics and copious handwork, and have acquired suppliers like Carlo Barbera mills in order to ensure that they'll always have access to the finest fabrics. They are, simply put, the pinnacle of ready-to-wear tailoring.
