Here at ESM, we’re all about good-looking, affordable clothes for the everyday man.

But every once in a while, we see some suits featured from high-end designers which make us say, damn that shit looks ridiculous.

For those of you who don’t know Kiton, here’s a little information from their Wiki page:

Kiton is a luxuryready-to-wear and made-to-measure clothing company founded in 1956 as CIPA in Naples, Italy by Ciro Paone, a fifth-generation fabric merchant, and Antonio Carola. Launched in 1968, the Kiton brand name is a derivation of the Greek word chiton, a garment worn by the ancient Greeks that the Romans later called a tunic. Antonio De Matteis is the CEO, and Antonio Paone is president of Kiton USA; both are nephews of the co-founder, Ciro Paone. The company’s motto is ll meglio del meglio più uno (“the best of the best plus one”).

So what does this all mean?

In short, Kiton makes some of the best suits in the world.  Period.

They also cost a shit-ton of money, where one suit can cost between $8,000 to $10,000 (no, that’s not a typo).

For most of us regular folks, $10k for a suit is pretty much out of reach, but that doesn’t stop us from appreciating the craftsmanship and design of the work they produce – and you can use these images as style inspiration for your own looks.

For the 1% who can afford pieces from Kiton, good for you – we’re only like 20% jealous.
