We actually visit their showroom in NYC. It's in the garment district and they have all their samples there in all the color ways for us to choose from. It is a wonderful experience as most showrooms are. Sometimes you will see pre- production of samples that never get cut because nobody selects them. When we are at our next fashion week in July, I will photograph our visit with Daiki and Angelo so that you all can see where it happens and get a flavor for the buying experience. I wish I could take you all on a field trip to their showroom but I'm afraid that you would wipe them out of their inventory.
As for the Look Book, this type of brochure is popular from most manufacturers to give you a feeling for the essence of their collections. I have a few F/W 07 look books that I'd be happy to send to anyone who would like to have one. All I ask is that you call me for one. First come, First serve. 617- 547-2067. I'm going home now, so call me tomorrow after 10am est with your address.
P.S. At this time I am sold out of Large in the Bedford Wool Herringbone. Anyone who did not give there method of payment for deposit by this time will have to wait and see how many more I can get. Sorry for this!
