I bought from marin and AnGeLiCbOrIs in the past few months - both good to deal with.

Bought some bags from a spate of recent online shopping: * Jil weekender from Gilt. Can't find a picture online anymore but it is the size of a large carry-on, blue leather with plus-sign shaped slits cut into the sides, with black mesh underneath. Too expensive, but too hard to resist.

I just got back from a trip to Korea after not having visited for 6 years. I'd say that while it is true that Koreans are nowhere near as fat as Americans are, I definitely saw more plump people this time around than last time. I'm guessing this has something to do with the noticeable increase in the number of eateries specializing in non-Korean food.
Free bump for Master-Classter. He found a beige XS for me, but then an order from Gilt that they told me was cancelled, came in anyway, so I have to pay for that instead.
What are the coats made of?
PM'ed about Armani shirt.
