  I may be wrong, but I strongly suspect that the Cosa Nostra comment was a joke, and that it wasn't meant to be taken seriously.
 I didn't know that - in that case, especially given that he seems to smoke like a chimney, he's well-preserved for his age!   Does this mean that we can expect to see In Stitches at the next Pitti, milling around near the wall wearing a brightly-coloured poncho, calf-length, drop-crotch trousers, faux-combat boots and a floppy hat???
 No, Lino's the perma-tanned guy in his sixties who wears tight DB jackets and partially-unbuckled double monks that look as though the toecaps have been dipped in dark paint:  He's got a shop called Al-Bazar in Milan with a branch store in Tokyo.

It's not clothing-related, but I thought that I'd share this little story.   My 9-year-old son and I have been watching quite a bit of football (the round-ball variety) lately as the Asian Cup is being played here at the moment. Japan played Iraq on Friday night and Australia played South Korea on Saturday night, both in Brisbane. Being half-Japanese, my son was very happy that Japan won against Iraq and when we heard that the Japanese team was going to have a public...
