The black, cloth suit is a staple in the style of luxury fashion and it can be purchased at a price of $1.200 at a local tailor’s shop, according to an online listing.
“This black, pleated, linen suit, worn in a way that doesn’t reveal a lot, is the way to go if you’re a designer,” says Patrick C. Kivich, owner of Kivithon in Montreal.
“You want a suit that will keep you in the public eye.”
Kivitz says that in the city, people who are black and wearing a black jacket are often seen as an elite class.
“Black is very, very important, so you want to look like you belong,” he says.
Black cloth suits can be ordered online or at a nearby tailor.
Kavich says the black suit can be worn by anyone and for all types of clothing.
“It’s very flattering to wear a black suit,” he explains.
Kovitz, who also owns Kiviths Shoes in Montreal, says people in his community wear black clothing in general, even if they aren’t rich or famous.
“People in my community wear the suit to get respect,” he adds.
“They wear it to wear it because it’s a fashion statement.
They wear it out to celebrate their heritage, to show off, to be proud of who they are.”
Kovich also says that black clothes are usually worn in the summer months.
“A black suit is not only a statement, it’s also a piece of clothing that has a very traditional function,” he notes.
“I’ve worn this suit in winter, and people just look at me and think, ‘This guy is going to be a big deal, he’s going to have a big role in history.'”
Kivits shoes in Montreal Kivitts Shoes is a small shop in the area, and Kivites is the owner of the store.
Kivette Kiviton, a Montreal resident, says she has worn the suit a lot since she first wore it, and she likes the way it looks.
“If you’re going to wear the black, the black jacket is just perfect,” she says.
“The black is very formal, and it’s very chic.”
Kivets says she is a designer herself, and when she wore the black and white, she thought that it was going to make her look cool, and was very happy when she actually got it on.
Kvivitt’s shoes can be found at the Kivitch store.
A black and blue, pleating, linen, black jacket and black pants, the suit is now available for $900 at Kivittes.ca.
The suit has also been sold at online stores like Urban Outfitters, and the company says it has sold some 500,000 pairs of the suit since it launched in 2015.
Kibits shoes also offers a black and grey leather jacket.
Kkivits says it’s important for people to understand that a black shirt and black tie is a fashion accessory.
“We don’t see people wearing a suit as a fashion trend, we see it as a statement,” he said.
“As a black person, it is a statement to show that you’re proud of your heritage and that you have pride in who you are.
You’re not going to look cool in a suit.”
The Black Leather Jacket, which Kivitas shoes sells online for $500, has also sold out at the store in the past year.
In 2018, Kivitaes shoes sold out of a Black leather jacket in a few days.
KVivitae’s shoes also sells black and green leather jackets.
In 2017, the company sold a black leather jacket to a young woman for $2,000.
Kivois shoes sells black leather jackets online, but also sells a black coat for $200, a white coat for about $200 and a black silk suit for $700.
Kevitas shoes, Kovits Shoes and KIVittes Shoes are all listed on the website of the Montreal Urban League, and some of them have opened stores.
“In the last two years, we’ve seen a huge surge in demand for our products,” says Marie L. Ouvrier, chairperson of the league.
“Our brand is known for its versatility, and with the launch of Black Leather Jackets and Black Pants, we are thrilled to see the demand for these pieces of clothing.”
In addition to the black leather suit, KIVitts shoes also has a black nylon jacket, a black tuxedo and black leather shoes.
“What we have here is the next evolution in the black fashion world, and I think that’s what makes us special,” says Kiviits.
