I cannot believe we wrote exchanges like this.
Well I was okay now I am ruined
Really? Are you sure you are not confabulating her with Anna Matuozo of Naples?
I am planning a trip to Milan in October and I am trying to identify worthwhile shirtmakers and tailors to check out, more to make souvenir pieces and for the adventure than to build my wardrobe. I'm having some trouble with shirtmakers. Besides the famous Siniscalchi, I have found the following: Anna Camiceria Dal 1960 Camiceria Barone Camiceria Ambrosiana Camiceria Alessandra Besides Sinischalchi's costing twice what I normally spend on bespoke shirts, he requires too...
I just saw this crap about kitchen costs, more urban legends. First of all my price for my kitchen was "down to the studs". Second of all there are lots of unfortunate reasons one cannot compare prices between kitchens in Europe and the United States, one of which is the expectation that cabinetry and appliances are permanent and not temporary. Third of all I find insulting when one quotes prices for elements of a kitchen without investigating the full cost. For example,...
I know I am a "late adopter" but can anyone propose a "top ten" of Tumblr pages for men's classic clothing?
I just bought linens for two beds and two baths in my new apartment, totalling $4000 (everything included sheets, comforters, pillow cases, 4 types of towels x 6 sets, and custom cut bath mats) from Busatti. Getting them was challenging. I liked the product. I think the bath towels are the nicest I have owned or used. The sheets are the nicest I have owned but I am not sure my taste or experience is that refined. But I am convinced that toweling aside, having linens custom...
Carmen has asked me to post something about her planned return to NYC. I consider her a friend but otherwise I have no connection to her firm. Details: her shirts are in the "$300" range give or take depending on fabric. So she is not "a steal" but definitely on the lower end. She generally offered less expensive "Spanish" fabrics and Alumo. But the Spanish company has folded so I think she will now be offering Italian fabrics instead. She does have the full range of...
I have to respond to this pile of crap. You can put this in the same bin as the urban legends about the Amish guy who will make you an entire kitchen for $5000. The AVERAGE price for a MID-LEVEL (not high end) kitchen re-do in the Philadelphia metropolitan area was $60,000. No averages are collected for "low-end" just "partial re-do". That's what our kitchen cost. The Ikea thing is also an urban legend. My designer bragged he had saved money by using Ikea cabinets in...
I am going to try the Spanish tailor Larrainzar, who visited New York the other day. I have a choice between Scabal 11.5 ounce fabric 701775 from the Classics bunch, a navy twill in wool, or 752181, a 9.5 ounce navy twill with 1 percent cashmere from the Triple A bunch. These will be used for a DB blazer and ideally it will be three season (not summer). I already have a light weight SB blazer. Any thoughts?
