The name Kiton comes from the Greek word chiton, which is a kind of tunic that the ancient Greeks and Romans used to wear. Using the most luxurious fabrics, the brand is known for it’s amazing handwork. It’s motto is the fitting phrase ‘Il meglio del meglio più uno’ which translates to the best of the best plus one. Kiton trains its own tailors in a school that is adjacent to the factory. Just like the suits, the sport coats and the shirts are made by hand by a number of extremely skilled artisans. 'You have to understand that Neapolitan tailoring is an art and not a job'
