Hmmm..... 35 % (narrow) to 61% (wide) I believe that's about the same percentage (35%) of U.S. and Russian voters who in 2009 said they would like to see back at the helm Bush and Stalin, respectively. Just something to think about.

Thoughts? Felt like I was sucking on a 2 x 4 yesterday trying 300% from Spain. Is there really demand for this? Is RP to blame? Inquiring minds want to know.

My advice to you gents is to try pawn shops for cuffbuttons. Most new ones I see are 4 figures and not very aesthetically pleasing. I thought I was in heaven when I saw the selection at numerous London pawnbrokers. Many sell them for near melt value, and I have seen cuffs by some quite remarkable jewelers (at least they were in their day, most have been out of business for decades).
I think it's easier to list the brands that do not annoy me.
Those black vass are great! Uhh....berluti....I has the misfortune of seeing where these were made....The only thing those puppies were missing was the "made in china" label. Upon entering the factory you would believe you were teleported to the glorious people's republic. Blake sewn shoes for over $1200. lol. Allen Edmonds should raise their prices 8 fold on that price-to-quality scale. Vass would be 5K or so? Edit: hey fritzl, long time no wienerschnitzel!

I'm in Europe and it seems silly to order a Scottish sweater from the US. Thanks in advance. Is it silly to order Canadian Whiskey as well? Because that sweater is best worn while drinking some.
Also, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to everyone in here!
