Diamond brads are such a decadent and sensible idea.

No. The black label Giorgio Armani is well made and of fine stuff, but still a heartbreak when you think of what you could have bought at Kiton with the same money.

Perhaps like this:


And Zilli of France can provide this lovely outerwear:

Zilli does shoes too. I saw a bunch in Cannes but passed. I thought it was all made in Italy.

I bet some of it is made in Italy. From the looks of it, much is designed in Hell .

Yes. I paid a visit to Louis Sciolla in Cannes and saw some perfectly awful examples of Zilli footwear nestled beneath a mannequin sporting Brioni tropical wool. By June, however, he'll have a full-service Corthay situation.

I just noticed how the main picture isn't actually of the product. How... classy. Oh, and those shoes are fucking hideous.

I thought Bijan (the man) was Iranian?

Yes. That is why he sells relabeled Brioni at $500,000 a barrel.

Ah, so that's how they're funding their nuclear programme...

Classico is well made but, as you say, hugely overpriced for what it is.
The regular line is junk.

I somehow also picture Alviero Martini bags in the same situation:

Having seen Zilli's stuff up close in their Parisian store, I must say that among the Stefano Ricci-style Trump-Klassy pieces there are some gorgeous, gorgeous clothes, particularly leather jackets, of the highest quality. All the stuff there that I saw, whether elegant or ostentatious, appeared very well made in the very best materials. I wouldn't pay 800 euros for a bespoke shirt from them, but their stuff is no International Male.

There is no doubt that it is really well made. When I was in college, I worked in a store that sold their stuff along with Kiton, Brioni etc. I imagine that the Zilli store has a better selection than the pimped-out Rodeo Drive crap from the 80s that we sold. The problem is that all of their retailers buy that kind of stuff (although, I have not seen it in a store since Rodeo Drive in the 80s). The pieces are immaculately made, but fur coats for men are not my bag, baby. This is the stuff that I remember:

This is up there with "Set your phasers to fabulous." Still my personal SF favorite.
