Do you have a link to the original? Sounds like there are pictures in there and I'd kinda like to take a look.
Back to that black v. color talk, I like color but I do like black a lot. I think it looks really clean and is very simple in a way. That's why I like it anyway.
Black is a little harder to match but it provides a sharper contrast than a more neutral color, which can be good. And RE B&S, I agree- seems like the stuff on sufu is much much nicer, too, even though it's all small sizes. SF seems like mostly wings + horns & gitman. I also thought those balenciagas I have in my sig would sell in a day or two and they've been sitting there for weeks.
