Leave it to the Neapolitan suitmaker Kiton to bring back la dolce vita with a remake of its own 1960s velvet dinner jackets (about $5,500). Kiton’s glamorous rendition for fall is a versatile piece that can be worn casually with jeans or paired with dress slacks as an alternative to the tuxedo. However it is worn, it brings sophisticated retro styling to evening wear for men of any age. (212.813.0272, www.kiton.it)
