But, what about the RL 100% cahsmere sweaters that are "made in China of Italian yarn"?Do you still have to worry about the Chinese houses adding other fibers to those sweaters if the yarn is Italian?
Anybody own this set? If anybody does or ever used it, I'm looking for some feedback on it. With the shape of the knife, I'm concerned how that works as a cutting instrument vs. a more conventionally shaped knife. I like the lines of it, but I'm a bit wary because some of the modernist flatwares like Arne Jacobsen are stunning to look at. But, they do so by overemphasizing the gratuitous novelty of its form to the detriment of the fundamental goal of being functional...
If the consensus was that the dyson was a poor choice, what was the consensus for a vacuum cleaner with a superior design for the brushes? Was it Miele? If it was Miele, is there a difference in brush design between all the different classes of Miele vacuums?Also, what was the consensus on those message boards about uprights vs canisters? I've grown up using uprights so I'm leaning towards getting one but that's just because I'm used to them.

And, during that follow-up, I would have loved for them to break to Jen Carroll for a few minutes to see what she was...
You might want to try Beverage Tasting Institute, which covers a large range of different drinks including whiskey. They try to make their testings ojective, but some of their results are controversial. For example, they gave a fairly low score to Plymouth Gin, which some consider one of the better gins in the market.
I noticed that if somebody mentions the Wall Street Journal, they will also mention another newspaper as well. Is it because you guys don't find that the WSJ gives all the content, like sports as an example, you'd want in a newspaper? And, if that's the case, why doesn't the WSJ beef up those areas like the sports section by hiring the best sports writers like what the Boston Globe did years ago.
