Well, he's not proud of it. Didn't you read they f*cked up the lobster?

So are you. I guess your problem of bespoke Italian summer suits/ jackets is solved ...

I may go to Naples in Nov. Not sure yet. If so I am going to ship a bunch of cloth on ahead and ask Luigi to cut it all.

What are the home equity loan rates these days?

Holy crap. Take me with you. At least bring me back a new Tubo.

I shipped cloth to Solito and it was returned 2 months later "non reclamato".
Also my 10 day alteration of a jacket, has lasted 6 months now and still counting.

My one remaining jacket from him is wonderful, though.
I would order another, if he returns to NYC soon.

Did Michelin do American restaurants in the early 80s? It was a steakhouse of some sort...I don't really remember exactly. It was a splurge, though. We were celebrating.

I successfuly sent some cloth to him but it was more than a year ago, I think.

Solito is certainly a contender, but only if I go there.

I'm hoping, however, that NSM will come to Boston this fall. I like the stuff they've done for Ed.

They kicked your asses, didn't they? Another -1 for Harvard.

Don't kick yourself. My greatest achievement is that I once owned a tubular belt called Tubo.

Cop broke it up, but given enough time, probably. There were three of us and I think five of them.

We got along with the townies on College Hill just fine. Sellers need buyers, after all. Whether pot or face-sized chocolate chip cookies, the market did its part to induce harmony. In Hyde Park, I simply avoided talking to anyone.

When it came back, he noted that this was not our lobster because this one was red.

Tea Party people: feel free to use this story in your attack ads.

But his mistake just establishes his TP cred as outside the "elite."

I believe that the correct term is, "pet."

According to the Limeys, Harvard is still #1 in the world:

Perhaps they need to read more about Vox's debate "partner" before they publish again. I'm that Frank Capra is the most notable alum of my school.
