Interesting you mention this name.  We were in Milan buying Prandina for the Spring 05 and Prandina is now manufacturing for Romeo Gigli so we looked at it and were gonna buy some until they told us that the line is Men's not womens. Very Very wild stuff. Is this a popular men's line? JJF
I wouldn't call it popular but is a niche line. Less cultish than Comme des Garcons or Dior Homme but still has its customers. Yes, they make some fairly avant-garde items. Gigli is actually a famed women's wear desginer who started at about the same time as Gianfranco Ferre, and others. Byblos, and Verri Uomo in my opinion need more retail space in the US.

We'll, they (Prandina) are only manufacturing meanwhile the Men's. With your mentioning that it was/is a Womens line you make an interesting point regarding fashion and designers. I find this with my Kids lines, and that is when a designer specializes (and does it well) in one gender in a fashion line (As opposed to classic design) its very difficult to design a line that is distinct while still being suitable for the other gender.

You are ridiculious... You must be one of this turned sour guy who make a job he does not like, has a life he does not want, who has no succes with women....
Nope, like my job most of the time (I'm an academic, and we are, as a class, sour, but in general, we wouldn't give it up for anything.) So I mostly like my job and my life. And I am engaged; and before that (although my fiancee might be angry for me bringing this up) I had plenty of success with women, mainly because I wasn't an uptight c*nt.

Honestly, I'd like to relieve myself on you.

You may like working 9h day long for a wages that allow you bying Boss suits.
I'm an academic, so I get to choose my own hours. I work longer hours not because of pay (I am salaried rather than earning wages) but because I rather like my job, and occasionally taking jabs at idiots on the internet.
Quote:
Sorry I prefer being unemployed and bying Lanvin suits because I do not pay rent.
Oh. I so hope that Verogroup reads your posts. You'd rather be a leech on your social system than find *any* honest job? Yes, you should be sorry.

No, but no one should be like you.

I think living beyond your means is lower class, and that is exactly the credit-driven consumptionism that europeans like to blame americans for. I personally think Boss is a fine brand, especially for those who don't wear suits too often. They are reasonably durable even if they are fused (I have a couple boss suits that I bought in the early 90s and they look close to new to me, definitely no bubbling) and while I typically wear Oxxford, Brioni, Dior Homme, Zegna Napoli, or other brands, I still wear my boss suits from time to time. Certainly someone who wins the lottery may choose different brands than one who has grown up with wealth, but I really dislike the term "novueau riche" because I think it really doesn't matter how long you've had your money, I think it is more important how you earned it, and personally I value hard work and education.

Thanks. LA Guy (as in man, not the French name) - who can barely afford his expensive sportswear, much less a closet full of Attolinis.

I seem to be the very central point of your life... You are teacher? I see better... From country?

No, not a teacher - a scientist, but teaching is also a noble profession. From Canada originally, then Los Angeles, now Boston. I've even lived in Paris for a brief time. No, not from "country". And I'm going home now. Yes, I do enjoy insulting you. There's a *lot* to make fun of.

Scientist? I imagine your style = thick glasses, no hair and looks like a dressed monkey with your pens in the chest's pocket? What is an academic? This is a job?

My means? Which ones? Credit? I have no credit...not even a credit card.

Sheesh. Kalra's banned so now Ernest has to find some one else to mess with. I thought this thread was about Hugo Boss suits?.

means refers to income. If you don't have any, then you are living beyond your means by purchasing expensive luxury items, understand? My point is that if you don't make any money but aspire to purchase higher end goods you are living beyond your means.
