Great find! You should open it and wear it (as, sadly, it's not particularly rare or ultra-valuable). BUT still too nice to sit in the box. I had one of those stopper-top EdTs back a few years ago. Nice stuff, and good longevity for an EdT.Costume National SCENT for me today; I forgot I had this one. Always like it. All the versions (intense, sheer, etc.) are nice, but the original has a lovely amber/floral accord that is quite charming. Totally Unisex (though INTENSE...
Diorling for me today. Another classic in the line of badly named, gorgeous Dior scents (Diorama, Dioressence, Diorella, Diorissimo, Dior Dior). This one is not by Roudnitska, but is a nice leather chypre that sits well beside the smutty Miss Dior (the original one, not the Nat Portman abomination). Happy that many are trying these new niche scents, but don't forget the oldies. To do so would be like reading Jonathan Franzen before dipping into Tolstoy. I've said it...
They do that sometimes. Like the transmission on an old Ford, they sometimes refuse to catch second gear.
I wanted up update this thread with a review of a pair of shoes I received from AZZURAA. I've had a chance to wear them for a week or two and wanted to respond about the product and the process. Style: "Pinus" Oxford punched cap toe shoes Size: Bespoke Color: Cinnamon calf exterior; black kid lining Price: $429 Website: http://www.azzuraa.com/ Executive summary: Worth it? YES. Especially for those who have non-standard sized feet or substantial differences between...
Brand: TRUSSARDI 1911 by Milan Vukmirovic Season: A/W 2010 Bag: Camouflage Shopper Tote in coated canvas/suede with canvas lining Retail: $1500 Condition: GOOD Measurements: 17X15X5 Selling my Trussardi men's camo shopper tote. The "classic" tote from the Vukmirovic tenure that was featured in multiple seasons from 2008-2012. I love it but just don't use it anymore and have too many other totes in the closet. In good shape, shows only basic wear from use but nothing...

My folks had a Datsun just after they got married as their first car. Yes, one would never imagine based on that experience that they were the same company today making cars people are really EXCITED to buy. Overall, I think the story of the Japanese automakers is one of the most fascinating in business. It's pretty old by now, but Halberstam's "The Reckoning" is a pretty neat read (about Ford and Nissan in the late...
It's interesting psychologically to gauge one's reactions; to me too my first thought was to balk at $50k for a Hyundai. BUT, I'm old enough to remember the days when a Toyota and a Honda were cheap cars you bought because of gas or because you couldn't afford a better one, and Subarus were about as sexy and cool as a wheelbarrow (and about the same size). My neighbor's son growing up had a "Justy," a car that is just as ugly as its name.ps my favorite still is the Mazda...
And here I am complaining at $2.80 for premium (93 octane) here in the Southern USA. Fuel economy is also pretty good on my V8; I average about 24mpg on the highway.I wish we had access to the Daimlers and some of the alternative engines/options here in the USA that Britain and Europe have, especially on the XJ40 (like those pictured below). They tended only to put the premium options here (leather, wood, all the electronic crap, and the biggest/newest engines). I'd...
Thanks! And you are correct; it's the X308 with the 4.0/V8. Doing some research, she was one of the last to roll off the line before they switched over to the X350 platform... actually built on the very last day of production (July 19, 2002).The "thinner" the cigar the better, in my book (haha). Not that I could afford one, but even still the newer XJs do little for me stylewise (even though feel/drive/quality apparently is excellent). I was in college for the last of...
