I think he's heading for 'Nam in that picture. Noticed the summer suiting and easy-on-easy-off slippers . . .

thanks fritz .. i might pick up a pair to 'wear in the house' .. and then accidentally go out in them with some faux sprezz .. see what reaction i get .. if i dont get a black eye on the tube back home i'll chalk it up as a win.

 

this may be a bit of a noob question .. but who is this Foo charater? ive seen the pics of his suits & resultant pages of commentary and noticed he's got his own smiley ?!  foo.gif can someone clear this up for me?

Pocket squares and ties, no time for a suit. Also, I always pick the days to go when Mr. Rubinacci and Luca aren't there.

I'd guess it is because Mariano is an exceptional salesman, and it's hard to tell him no. At least that's been my experience. happy.gif

Mariano is always trying to sell you something...

I don't do it on purpose! haha! It just always works out that way. However, if what coolpapa said is true it might be best to avoid him bigstar[1].gif

He's wearing the Belgian loafers there, right??

post #3809 of 4250

looks like it .. although the fact that they are black and at a fair distance means the details in all their glory are lost ..cant make out the little bows from here smile.gif

  

so anyway as noone came back to me on the 'who is foo' mystery .. i searched his posts .. and found out he's actually a real person ?! i previously thought people were posting these pictures of a short chinese guy in bad suits as some sort of strange recurring joke.

Saigon....shit.

Coppola pic is an adaption of Conrad's story - this is a perfectly accurate literary allusion. Taking it a step further, and substituting the SF gestalt, perhaps it is not too far-fetched to view foo.gif as a Kurtz figure?
