I should imagine your lady friend might enjoy it more at your Nuit Blanche; perhaps you could read it from afar while she looks onto your moon drenched glory with those antique opera glasses you got her. Maybe wear some Berlutis--and nothing else?

Okay, now you're creeping me out. Go to bed, it's a school night, and dream of Artisans.

If you pulled your head up from stroking your Delos and Dragon shirts, surely you would know it's summer.

Or more likely Dillinger's formaldehyde soaked cock.

It's the patina.

I don't know what that even is, but I'm mildly frightened you know of its existence.

The fatman and his posse are in the house! Hide your women and children, lest they be exposed to sartorial horrors so extreme as to gauge out their own eyes.

I think the one that looked like a parquet floor was my favorite.

I am not convinced that's completey true.

Anyway, If you are not a fan of my writing, I understand. Perhaps a different author is more to your liking?

This essay is an Englishman's take on West End style:

A friend suggested that Lanvin also has or had some foreign clients who are able regularly to place very large orders -- storybook nabobs who reputedly wear shirts once, that sort of thing. (Similarly, I am certain that Hilditch & Key Paris' bespoke operations -- which are separate from those of its UK parent -- are completely dependent on their hundreds of orders annually from Mr. Lagerfeld.) At the same time, my friend suggests that the owners of Lanvin aren't particularly interested in supporting the bespoke operations, so things may sort of be drifting.
Isn't Gelot another of those English imports as I've seen Gelot hatboxes with By Appointment to King Edward written on them.
