A Suit to Own

With Versace, Armani, Ralph Lauren, and Jil Sander announcing customized menswear lines, the old-world art of made-to-measure suiting is suddenly hot again. One truly classic, always dapper—yet under the radar—must-have suit is by Kiton, the Neapolitan fashion house that has been making its pieces one at a time since it was founded by Ciro Paone in 1968. We love the Kiton suit for, among other things, its welt pocket and Neapolitan shoulder. Of course, the house must also get credit for its vicuña overcoats, handmade shirts, and seven-fold silk ties. But there’s just something about a man in a Kiton suit. From $5,000; 212-813-0272
