Saks has interesting timing for the opening of its Kiton boutique, reports the New York Times. They will be offering men's suits running $7000 (off the rack) to $21,025 (bespoke). Said Saks president Ronald L. Frasch, “These are decisions that are made with significant advance planning.”
The article claims that a Kiton suit can be balled into the crevice of an airline seat and come out fresh enough to wear (I know, sounds like an infomercial). Incidentally, a pair of Kiton Jeans are $700.
