 +1. I remember that Huaraches and other such Nike shoes were $200 plus in Australia back in the early-mid 1990s.
   No - the groundskeeper, once he's finished cleaning the seats in the Range Rover.
 My Uniqlo merino sweaters are years old, so I don't know if the current range are the same, but I've hand-washed mine in cold water a heap of times and they've never shrunk. After I've washed them, I roll them up in a towel gently to squeeze out some of the water and then I lie them flat on a towel (usually on an outside table) to dry them.
 Plenty of people out there with big, expensive (much more than RX100) DSLR cameras shooting full auto. Yes, it's largely a waste, but I suppose that even if you shoot full auto all the time, having a good camera with a bigger sensor, processor and lens still gives you benefits over a smaller, cheaper camera. Edited to add: I used to shoot manually with my Fuji, but my wife frequently became irritated with me and she'd say, "Why do you always fiddle around so much and take...

^ Trickers?
I, too, tend to think that Gianni's not getting a discount or kickbacks, but rather that he's doing it as a friendly favour.   However, given Gianni's reputation on this forum, I think that instead of doing Pirozzi a favour, he's more likely doing him a disservice.
^ Nice!   It's also great to see someone wearing something a little left-field, from a brand that's not so well-known amongst the general public.   When I was in Tokyo earlier this year I had dinner with a friend of mine who works for a large bank and he invited some of his friends/colleagues along. One of them was wearing a De Bethune DB28 Digitale. It looked great and the night-sky display was stunning. If I were a rich man...
