We chatted about Kiton a bit, and we agreed that the jacket shape Kiton does is a bit barrel-shaped.

We did not have to say your name aloud.

[Mina calling out to Dino...forgive me, but my Italian is not good]

Mina: "Vaste spalle, vita stretta."

Dino: "Si."

Mina: "Così differente che Ed e Greg."

Dino: "Si."

Mina: "Quei due dovrebbero realmente mangiare meno pasta."

Dino: "Ma è sveglio quando lucidate le loro pance!"

I showed her the US note that has my bust and my motto: "I am the style Lorax. I speak for the steez." But in Latin, the language of the Romans.

I mentioned it to her and I'm not too worried about it. I also noticed that the examples she had on display in her studio looked more like what I want. I have a fat head and figured those lapels would accentuate that.

So, like the CE, then.

I don't know, I would think skinnier lapels would make a fat head look fatter.
