My guess is that they've settled into their new, larger premises now. Ricky also has a few people working for him in the store.
It's not clear if Ferrari is suing about the modifications to their car (crazy) or about all the Ferrari branding on this guy's website. If it's the latter, it's not so ridiculous - you can't just take someone else's trademarks and use them to promote your own company.

Agreed - they have a good selection of different colours (all solids), but the cloth is relatively heavy and doesn't breathe especially well.
I had a linen shirt made recently elsewhere from one...

Paul Stuart has the widest selection of knit ties that I've seen anywhere.
INSEAD lets you split your time between the Fontainebleau and Singapore campuses - it's a great option, although given the total length of the program it doesn't give you a huge amount of time in either place.
However, you should really have a clear view of what you want to get out of B school before committing to it.

As another suggestion for a tiny artisanal producer (French, not Belgian), try Joel Durand in St-Remy-de-Provence. He uses a lot of local herbs and spices, like basil and lavender, in his chocolate. Very unusual, but some amazing...
Of the major houses, Leonidas and Neuhaus are good choices. Leonidas is probably the best bang for the buck.
For a smaller producer, Marcolini is fantastic.
It's not necessary to have things sent overnight, but the chocolate doesn't last long on the shelf (or more specifically, the cream-based fillings really don't have a long shelf life). I would want something that could be delivered within a few days.
