Wow - my first real visit to SF in a couple years and this is the thread/post I see first. Thierry Mortet Chambolle Beaux Bruns (99 I think) in London nearly a decade ago was the wine that sparked my passion. Beautifully fragrant. Haven't had one since. Hardly ever see/hear of them. Had some nice wines at dinner last night. 2000 Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche was the star - really expressive at this stage with an explosive nose of primary fruits and some secondary...
A nicely defined, shaped last (not necessarily chiselled or pointy), good leather, lack of metal, probably not black. Suede makes a ton of sense for loafers. I'm a big fan of those Anthony Cleverley tassels.

Used to do this a lot in NE USA. Best was a 16 oz flannel three piece with gloves and a big, thick scarf. Worked to about 0 degrees Celsius, sometimes lower.
A friend who's designing now went the Brown-RISD route. Seems to me to be the best way to go in terms of formal schooling, though there is much to be said for being in NYC/Columbia.

It's worth going to and not very expensive, but don't expect to be blown away as you would expect at a 3 star restaurant. The dim sum and food in general is very well-done, as they are at most of HK's 5 star hotels' restaurants. This one gets more creative than the...
