Actually haven't made it to Uniqlo. Some of the pieces looked cool, but the women's stuff seemed so much more interesting. Menswear side felt a little dull in comparison, so I didn't go.
I can't say with absolutely certainty, but I'm pretty sure he's been booted out. I've had several people stop by the restaurant at various times to check, and he's never there. And I've asked people who know the situation there and who I think are trustworthy. By all accounts, it seems he's been kicked out.He still owns 33% of the company though. Not sure if that means he's still taking a share of the profits, but he's removed from the day to day operations. He's currently...

@nicelynice, shell cordovan is really water resistant. A really long time ago, Ron Rider on the CM side of the board conducted an experiment using American shell (Horween) and Japanese shell (I think it was Shinki). He made two bags out of the materials and filled them up with water, IIRC, to show that shell can hold water for days (and thus, also keep water out). Horween performed a lot better than Shinki though, in terms of actually holding the water. At least from...
Obneauf's is sticky, IME. Even in light layers. Seems like if you put that stuff on a bag, it's just going to get all over your clothes and/ or contents.
I dig that.
