Sort of like the trads on ask andy.
Ringring is more or less a mystery - despite that he claims he doesn't work in the denim industry and that he's just an armchair denim enthusiast, the amount of knowledge he has is astounding. Definitely on par with Manton's knowledge of suits.
He's kind of like a balloon that's filled with information, and us S&D people are always poking him with needles to try and get him to squirt a little.
