The Kiton sample sale severely lacks in options for women, but for men, there is a huge selection of fancy clothing (mostly suits) waiting to be purchased. Ladies, I wouldn’t recommend going to this sale, but guys, if you love Kiton but hate the price tags, head on over!
Everything at this sale is 65% off retail. Shoes, accessories (such as hats, ties, cufflinks), suits, shirts, jeans, and outerwear are neatly organized throughout the space. All of the items are smartly separated by size and category which makes it easier to shop. The suits at this sample sale are gorgeous. The styles range from business chic to funky dad and I obsessed over most of them. Unfortunately, though the selection of shirts is kind of lame and some of the more intricate pieces with sensitive materials (such as suede) are damaged.
Ladies, there isn’t really much to say here. There is one long rack with different kinds of merchandise mixed throughout. A lot of the items are damaged or in poor condition which is really disappointing. There are some really cute pieces though, and everything 65% off retail. The most impressive items are outerwear but there were a couple of cute blouses.
Overall I am going to give this sale a 6/10. I think 65% off retail for Kiton is good, but not on par with typical sample sale deals. Even though it is a top-notch designer, they could do better. I mean look at the Roberto Cavalli sample sale prices! That’s what all sample sale discounts should be like. But I digress; the staff members at this sale were friendly and helpful, and for men, they had a nice range of options. I think if you’re a guy looking for a fancy new suit, you should go; otherwise, stay home.
