This really reflects a deterioration in the content of the forum. If want to focus on the discussion of bespoke and higher-end MTM, I suggest the London Lounge. Alternatively, you can search the archives of the forum for higher end RTW. For example, spend some time scanning the Belvest thread. Not quite in price range of Kiton, Brioni, Attolini, etc. but a very respectable maker, and, IMO, more stylistically interesting from the likes of Zegna.
Finally made it to Buttermilk Channel (Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY). The place was popularized by its take on Fried Chicken and Waffles. The chicken was juicy and tasty though a bit cumbersome to eat. My friend had the pasta, which was very good. The mussel appetizer was perhaps the highlight of the night.
Like I said before,this is a circular argument made every few years. I think Reevolving spawned another alter ego. This 1%er describes his theoretical life like a college freshmen or sophomore assigned to an introductory ethics class.
I think we have the same argument or discussion every 3-4 years.
I don't think the shoes are made by Lattanzi. The price point is too low even for Lattanzi diffusion lines like Zintala or Gerardo Fosati. The latter retail for around $1250-1350, and I would expect the Brioni label would command another $100-200 premium. FWIW, I've never encountered a Lattanzi made shoe with a rubber inset. The best way to confirm the provenance of a potential Lattanzi shoe is to inspect the sock liner. Lattanzi uses a distinctive Italian themed...
They arent worth anything. Glued rubber. No association with Luigi Borrelli

There are four other boroughs outside Manhattan. If you really wish to experience an alternate universe in NYC, travel to the South Shore of Staten Island. The population is almost entirely white, middle-class, and votes Republican en masse. The latter is a complete anomaly even for New York State!Quoted for partial truth. I live in one of the most popular breeder neighborhoods in NYC (non-Manhattan), and 200k HHI seems like an accurate entry point.
Do you travel at all for business/work? I spend at least 3-5k per year for business related expenses, and I'm a small timer. For anyone working in the consulting industry who uses their own credit card and later reimbursed by their parent company, must churn at least 3k a month. Even using a basic Costco Amex for the 2% travel & restaurant rewards + 3% gas rewards equals $720 per year in TAX FREE rewards. And this doesnt even include frequent flyer mileage.
Finally had the time to get some shirt sleeves shortened. Called Allmeier Shirts (an old mainstay). Shortening now starts at $15.50
