Congrats on the good find. I wonder if the leather is cordovan.
Yeah. Perhaps Canta should change his avatar. Occasionally I think Canta is behaving oddly and then I notice the username.

Cool. Now it makes sense that he's a magician. I wonder if they'll do something similar at the NYC event.
If you ever make it over to Salerno, check out Cappelleria Russo Giosue. I got a Montecristi from there last summer. The hat buyer at Paul Stuart liked it so much he started giving me advice on its upkeep.
I believe the luxury watch market is all about aesthetics, after all cheap quartz watches keep time better than the best mechanical watch. If you go to the watch enthusiast sites, it is more about the beauty of the movement than its accuracy. Personally, I wear a watch more for the aesthetics. My iPhone keeps better time, automatically synchs to the timezone, daylights savings and etc.
Just saw this on the G&G tumblr http://gazianogirling.tumblr.com/post/85747638481
I was in Milan last week and noticed a number of men wearing suits in various shades of brown and tan. Seems more common there than in NYC.
I think visiting cloth merchants are best when you have something in mind that can't be easily found. I recall Drapers is supposed to have a book of dupioni silk, but I haven't seen it circulating. Checking Jodek International's website, I couldn't find the Drapers 100% silk in stock.I asked for mohair in case something unusual turned up. The brown mohair feels quite heavy and I recall Despos mentioning a dark brown mohair DB was one of his favorite suits.I didn't ask to...
From a recent trip to Il Vecchio Drappiere. cream silk suiting and dark brown 100%mohair under bright daylight.
