It takes 22 separate steps, most by hand, and 4 1/2 hours to make a Kiton shirt. Stitching is lavish, about 12 per cm (industry norm is 9) without compromising the flexible fit of the shirt. To parafraze a Kiton shirtmaker, the shirt should be the lining for the jacket. As with any piece Kiton makes you are guaranteed a beautifully made garment in a fabric exclusive to Kiton. To me, personally, the exclusivity is becoming more and more important in a time when the smaller fabric mills are being absorbed by international conglomerates and individuality is vanishing. Our fit is trim, but not slim and a M fits an Italian size 50. As with all the Kiton wonders, the shirt is made at the Kiton compound minutes outside the center of Naples, Italy.
