A body of fabric
Sartorial design is at its peak in the construction of a Kiton suit. Each jacket, like an architectural structure made of precious fabric, is fashioned by no fewer than 25 different people in 1,800 steps.
Only one hundred pieces per day for 25 hours of work to ensure the highest quality and obsessive attention to every detail. Each suit is hand-cut and tacked, without using a machine. The harmony is provided by the deft touch of the artisan who eliminates, almost as if by magic, any imperfection that all human bodies inevitably conceal.
The Neapolitan-style chest pocket, called a ‘barchetta’, follows the line of the chest.
Each button-hole is cut and finished by hand.
No ostentation: we prefer to hide the infinite stitches that shape a jacket inside.
A vintage gesture
Once the suit is completed, it is ironed with vintage irons, each weighing 8 kg, according to the classic combination of a “wet cloth and a hot iron” to give the fabric all its natural softness.
