(4) some guys push the envelope but actually look really really good. Not in a classic MC way but still look good. Agyesh (shorter guy with the tulip hat) is a great example of that. He's got his own style, and of course he's in the business of promoting his company's stuff and new designs, but he has excellent taste.

Agreed...

They're the "In" crowd in desesperate need of self promotion to increase their exposure...

Like every clique or microcosm ,they're becoming very irritating quite quickly..

(4) there's an element of humor that can or cannot be appreciated

I agree that Pitti is more than what tumblr makes it out to be.. No. 3 is what doesn't sit well with me. At least the other folks there are for legit reasons.

It looks like Barry's suits are fitting him a bit better these days. And a thumbs-up for the soporific tie.

I've noticed that too. Wonder if he's using Greenfield now?

That's the scuttlebutt. A recent piece implied that Greenfield's son removed Barry's signed picture from the wall when they came through with the photographer.

Well, good for him. Just because you're a politician and have to wear UCBD doesn't mean your stuff shouldn't fit. He really does look much, much better in these new suits.

And definitely love the soporific tie.
