The September (?) 2013 cover of The Rake magazine features Alessandro Sartori on the cover. He is the artistic director of Berluti. The Rue de Sevres store in Paris has some gorgeous umbrellas for sale (hello to the rain in Paris). They are something over 500 euros.
You're the first to comment on them, I'm the 2nd. Their website currently says they are not in the US. However I'm seeing some google entries mentioning Aventura mall, which is a sweet upscale mall on Miami Beach. I'm in Paris right now and just went into their store here. It might be the first time in my life where I've ever said, "Oh, I have to come back here and buy a ton of things". Usually I will find one or two things I like in a store, at most. In this...
Up for sale via ebay (starting at $49) are two NWOT J. Press Shaggy Dog Sweaters. I'm moving to a warm climate (hot, damn!) and can not use the sweaters. They are size medium... but I think they work for both a medium and large. Blue is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251214527839?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Red is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251214529608?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 These are great sweaters - terrific...
I thought I'd cross post this here in case anyone is subscribed to the thread. This was my go to thread a couple years back when I started searching for nice rugs.

A Very Special Rug Sale & Show This Saturday As Featured in Vogue & National Geographic Traveler Hamza Yidiz (from Istanbul) Rug Sale & Show Where: 111 Grand Street - Brooklyn (Williamsburg) When: THIS SATURDAY - December 1st - 5pm to 7pm I'm posting this because I met this guy and visited his store in Istanbul this past summer. I bought two rugs there (and shipped them to NYC) and love them both. A few days before I was in the store he sold 5 rugs ($$$$) to a guy...

Geez... nobody has given the right answer, or asked the appropriate questions. What is the venue? Is it a 5-star restaurant? Is it the basement of the senior partner's house? Unlike many here, I've hired and fired several people. For everything from minimum wage to $200K positions. Here's some extremely valuable information: You get hired if: - You can do the job - You fit in with the group If it is a burgers and fries... or chicken wings type of event that...
I agree with Mr. Booth. I was up at the Bergdorf area last year... and didn't think it was worth my time. I might go to the Ralph Lauren mansion just to see if anything is going on... then later walk through Soho and/or Bleecker Street. There's a pair of cucinelli pants I want. People (mostly women) do buy stuff tonight though. Mostly full retail pricing, too. There is no "must do" event tonight that I know of, and I've been searching a bit just in case. Maybe a...
Is that 25% off.... or 75% off. 25% off would be a serious "why bother?".
Not sure why the OP edited out most of the photos, leaving only two. Strange. But for Burberry fans, I was in a store today and checked out the coat I liked (grey/white checked houndstooth long coat with two rows of buttons (double breasted look) on the front. Very nice coat, but with a $3,000 price tag. Definitely not worth that amount. Herringbone, not houndstooth. Here's the...
