Typical, someone purchasing items who knows hardly anything about them: "At $345 a pop, Charvet shirts are top-of-the-line expensive, but they do last. The salesman said the shirts would be ready by Friday, and that since we live right by the stop where he caught his bus, he would deliver them himself." They last? ??? I can make a GAP shirt last for 10 years too. Just purchase enough of them and rotate them frequently and watch them last. There is no need to pay that much money if you only want a shirt that "˜lasts'. "Brioni and Kiton, the ultrafabulous Italian designers" Neither are considered "˜designers' frankly I'm tired of that term thrown around for every label in fashion, they are clothing houses, manufacturers and sartoria's, not "˜designers'. "There's bottled water. On ice. With napkins" Oh, ah...napkins. HAHAHAHA, this is how you know a person is too enthralled with labels and not quality: "The headwaiter was wearing a multicolored striped shirt. "Etro?" I asked. "Gap," he said." But, one good thing, they have a vintage Rolex for $3,300, Ernest time for a trip to NYC. Jon.
