On the JLC Boutique front I went into the Boutique in London looking for a coloured faced Reverso. It was only after trying all them and many others that I decided to buy there and then the bog standard, without second hand, GRUT. As is often said try them all on and buy the one that sings to you.
It just goes to show Sator does not know everything.
