As I said, whether the Italian proposal is goo or bad is besides the point. The Italian government is being prevented from governing its own economy on a matter of vital economic importance and in the way it sees fit, by EU regulation. It may be that the Italians are wrong and Brussels is right, but that seems to me like a pretty clear loss of sovreignty over the second most vital national interest (after security).
Today's Wall Street Journal had a fascinating article about that was not Brexit except it was about Brexit. The gist is that the Italian banking system is in trouble (exacerbated, perhaps, by Brexit but that is besides the point). The Italian government would like to do a bailout of some kind that would involve [Italian] government investment in the banks to shore up their capital. Apparently, Brussels said that Italy may not bail out its banking system because that...

On my way out of town today I decided to switch to a watch with a day counter since it may be hard to keep track of elapsed days where I am but I might need to stay in touch with people back home on occasion and it would be useful to know the date. The day counter is a good way to keep track of elapsed days and I advanced it to today's date as a proxy for the date. Mine counts 31 days, so would someone remind me to reset it at the end of the month? June has 30 days and I...
Fuck you all

I am wearing my first Solito-made suit today. Damn . . . it is good-looking. In fairness, it might be me.
Come on. Feel the Verm.
That's how it worked in the past. Kilgour certainly did that for many years. As I recall, they were even made in the US by HF or HSF (Kilgour). And they may have had some control but probably not that much. For a long time, Barney's sold Huntsman shirts. Long before Huntsman made any.
It is likely that the Huntsman RTW sold at Barney's is entirely different than what they sell out of their own shop. Separately, I know someone who also tried their MTM (not sure if they still do it) and was very happy with it, although he didn't like the fact that the shoulder expression was pretty much take it or leave it. He was a pretty experienced bespoke customer, so he both knew enough to know what he was buying into and also to know he was getting a compromise. ...
