Interesting - it looks like a much warmer/orange color on the MR picture than the H&S pic

It looks very nice. I'll get my tailor to order a swatch and if I like it, It'll make a nice project for next year. Thanks.

Just wondering who was first? Although I do think that buttons have an advantage over a zipper when so much chest hair is involved! I do think though that Luca is trying too hard to be a fashionable counterpart to his father's more conservative way to dress (which I prefer)!

Consider for a moment as well that the best buttons in the world will make not a whit of difference to a poorly cut suit, which is the problem with most suits we see here. This button thing is like one of those audiophile things - like $1000 wooden knobs on your stereo player to make it 'sound' better.

Buttons and thread are the least expensive ingredients in a suit/ garment. If you buy it from the factory/ wholesale.
There is a German manufacturer in Augsburg where anyone can order (25 pieces each minimum order), prices are more than reasonable.

0.28 Euro is about $0.35 (plus VAT within Europe) or so for a 20mm button in real horn (20 and 22mm are the most common sizes for coat front buttons, 13 to 16mm for the sleeves).
Funny thing is that the plastic version costs more, although one would have to get really close to spot the difference.

But I am not sure which version (real or fake) can take more "pull"!

Thanks for the link!


Edit: but:




Do you know if they ship to other countries as well? (The Netherlands, for instance...) Sorry for the off-topic.


Edit edit: never mind:

As a man of the world, I feel pretty lucky that the taste of Harrod's means I will soon have broad access to a true innovator of cloth and colour.

I bet Boyer doesn't fit into his Weatherill anymore.

See if Edmorel can put in a good word for you...Ed is among the few to whom Boyer will reply without an invoice.

BTW, a craze among the kinder are these rubber bands called Silly Bandz. Last weekend, I was amused to see my son's wrists popping out of his blue blazer encircled with thirty or forty colorful rubber bands.

At that point, I realized that Rubinacci was in the house.

My apologies in advance if this story summons teh tepdoc.

Piece of cake:



He's been wearing them for decades. Removed them lately to revive the skin on that segment of his arm...

Amazing little scarf but they ruin it by plastering the brand name on it. #fail

What's your guess? Mississippian or Pueblo peoples?

I tend to think Pueblo, maybe early Basketmaker II.

What throws me are the Cahokian influences.

Nice lifestyle shot. I still like what he does with colors, but don't think it's something I could pull off nor do I want everyone to start trying. Still, it's nice that he does.
