Alls not lost...I do wonder if that type of transition can be successfully completed even with the backing of LVMH it's a tall order. 240

The collection actually looks pretty good. A more French approach to tailoring, as opposed to the more common Italian feel.

I can't help but notice how FUCKING HIDEOUS a vast proportion of Berluti's shoes seem to be.

The RTW menswear collection is pretty good though.

Unfortunately there are a great many people with a great deal of money who place a very high premium on having 'things' that no one else has. In other words, if anybody else I know, or may encounter, might possibly have the same thing I don't want it - period.

It becomes more important to be 'special' than to be tasteful, or stylish, or even just simply well put together.

Many of these people are my clients - it's really a pretty disgusting thing to witness in a lot of ways.

It's all about ego and social dominance.

As we know you are comitted to obtaining only the very finest in neck bolts we trust you will understand the unavoidable delays. As they are inherent to the fully bespoke bolt creation process.

No, but I'm sure if you ask Phat Guido, he would tell you how much he paid for his (not that he'd wear the shoes, considering his track record around here).

Do you defend crooked investment bankers in court? mwink[1].gif

But seriously, I grew up in a family that had virtually nothing, so I agree. It sucks that clothes can become more of a proclamation of status than what they really are -- clothes.

No - I design their houses, hotels, restaurants, clubs and playgrounds in general.

Since the beginning of clothing and the adornment of the body in general, these things have always been used as a display of wealth and importance. Be it a necklace made of shells, a tattoo, or a custom bespoke suit made from the hairs of now extinct baby camels. It's all the same schtick for many people.

Yes it sucks - but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

In Atlanta? That's still cool though.
