Depdends on where do you play him and which role you are aiming to fill. He can serve as bruiser, tank or damage dealer, depending on circumstances.

When I pick Xin in the jungle I tend to play him as initiator/tank with little of support bend. So, the core items of choice are Madred's Razors and Locket of Iron Solari plus boots. Lantern is nice but you can do without it. I shamelessly stole page from Sain Viscious plays here - if I can afford lantern before 8 minutes I take it, if not I just go ahead with Locket.

After that I pick items depending on the game. Usually the boot 2 choice is Merc Threads due to tenacity, but against heavy AD, obviously Ninja Tabi work.

Since I prioritize tanky stats the items I most often end up with are Randuin's Omen vs AD heavy team/fed enemy AD or Bulwark vs AP. By the time you get both (they work nice together) it will be probably over.

Itemizing for damage I'd add Black Cleaver since it synergizes with Xin's passive and gives utility for your friendly AD carry.
