Yeah, I tried to check out that Yoox article when it was published, but as you said, they lock out the nonsubscribers. Would love to get my hands on it if someone around these parts has a PDF or something handy

Oh, and re: the mafia thing, I did a quick google search and found this article. Here's an excerpt:
Quote:
Roberto Saviano, the investigative journalist in Naples who wrote a bestselling book about the Camorra, disclosed how leading fashion designers' companies regularly outsource orders to sweatshop tailors controlled by the Camorra in Campania. Mr Saviano did not name any of the designers but he revealed how big fashion houses supply competing Mob tailors with raw materials. The skilful underworld tailors win the contract while the others are allowed to flood the market with "counterfeit" clothes tailored to specifications received directly from the Milan or Rome firms seen as spearheading some of Italy's most prestigious exports.

Of course, it's super vague and leaves out all the statistics you'd otherwise want, but it's interesting stuff.

Went today, and all three were closed on Monday frown.gif I might have time Friday afternoon to stop back before catching the train north. I did find Hipster Home, which had a lot of cool kitchen gadgets.

RFT:

I think this summer taught me that wearing any kind of pants, shirts, shoes during the summer sucks major ass. Unless you are locked up in an air-conditioned box 9AM - 6PM.

Next summer I'm just going to wear loose white/black shorts with a drop and a white hooded pullover. Sandals or high tops. I think having a deep hood and long sleeves will go a long way to protect me from the sun without having to apply as much sunscreen when I'm running around town. Seriously, it's way more stylish when your clothing fits your environment and keeps you comfortable. If you're from the southwest there is no shame in incorporating desert people clothing, shit will work.

I live in a tropical country where we sometimes get sniggered at for just wearing a sweater. But i say just wear what the hell you want as long as you feel comfortable.

Here's the Yoox article in the New Yorker if anyone's interested. Words are a bit small cause I couldn't split the actual pdf so had to use jpegs.

Are hightops and hooded tops really a good idea in the summer if you live in the Southwest?
post #64269 of 98191
tanks, shorts, hightops (vans are ok I got some blue ones as beaters)

Shorts and high tops look terrible if you're vertically challenged though

I swear uniqlo is like my favorite store in NYC.

Going to cop a couple of jackets soon.

Avoiding exposure to the sun is probably the best thing you can do to avoid skin damage and aging. I have until next summer to find something that'll stay cool. I like this but would like the pullover white instead.

Not really. If you're squat andor have thick legs then ya prob....but if you have slim proportions or aren't bottom heavy it shouldn't look bad

super vague and super short, as if there was a reason why.
