Il vecchio drappiere is great. I got suit lengths of silk and mohair, but didn't think to bargain. At the end they were pushing this green Solaro by Carlo Barbera. Unwearable for me.

If they did meet, are they alike or is she a bizzaro version of Synthese? 2). Who is that girl in several pictures with unbel? Is she the same person of interest from last season? Or was that just Synthese ragging on unbel's game? I haz to know. But it seems I'll have to wait for the next season Pitti SF to...
