Geary later gets caught in a Corleone whorehouse with a dead hooker after some kinky sex, and becomes a big Corleone backer. Geary probably started buying Dupioni suits after that

"Senator, you can have my answer now if you wish. What I offer you is exactly nothing, not even the fee for the gaming license, which I would appreciate if you would take care of personally."

Or something like that.

Awesome.

New Evidence for Silk in the Indus Valley Civilisation

Silk is an important economic fiber, and is generally considered to have been the exclusive cultural heritage of China. Silk weaving is evident from the Shang period c. 1600-1045 BC, though the earliest evidence for silk textiles in ancient China dates to a millennium earlier. Recent microscopic analysis of archaeological thread fragments found inside copper and steatite beads from two important Indus sites, Harappa and Chanhu-daro, have yielded silk fibers, dating to c. 2450-2000 BC. This study offers the earliest evidence in the world for any silk outside China, and is roughly contemporaneous with the earliest Chinese evidence for silk. This important new finding brings into question the traditional historical notion of sericulture as being an exclusively Chinese invention.

Corleone is the man. The more I look, the more he's killing it in that suit.

For a (generally) unslubby silk suit, I believe Tibor now has the silk Spano DB one I mentioned upthread and has posted several pics of it in the WAYWRN thread over recent weeks/months. I'll see if I can dig up a pic.

 

EDIT: here we go... couldn't find a full-length pic, but some close-up shots...

 

(Tibor, if there's any problem with my cross-posting these to this thread, just let me know & I'll remove them, stat).
