The Rubinacci Thread. - Page 257

post #3841 of 4250
I am sure I am not alone in being a little disappointed with the lack of consultation with some of the more important senior members here. Shoddy treatment of those who made them great is only going to come back and hurt the Rubinacci family. It is fine to rely on Luca's chest hair, but that will get them only so far if they continue to bite the hands that fed them.

A&S did not buy up the floor above their old store, doubling their square footage, build a brand new workshop in the acquired space, then move two years later.


Well, the Rolands have always been astute at business.

When Mario Zuccala moved, he moved way, way, way out.

And not by choice, as I understand the story.

There was also that tailor that moved into a jail cell. Temporary, though, I think.

They had a big offer from Prada and sold the location, the tailor room remain at the upstairs of the current building.
Surely the new store will be at the same level if not better of the actual store.

Yay! Prada!

Maybe Prada bought more than the building.

Holy crap - I hope not.

Well, it's a way to get into RTW in a relatively big way.

They've tried twice already.

Cravate: please tell me that the warehouse with the deerstalkers is still intact. I would be sad to see that go.

If they are moving into the 'Rubinacci Vintage' location, it's not a downgrade at all. It's just down the hill a bit and set in its own courtyard away from the street. I don't suspect the move by itself will affect business much. It's not like anybody just wanders into Rubinacci happenstance today and suddenly decides to order a suit.

That wouldn't bother me - I got one already (tyiam).

Saw the Schiaparelli / Prada exhibit at the Met this week. Would recommend. I was actually quite inspired by it.

This observation has a vaguely Lord of the Rings flavor to it. I know because I recently saw it.

Good. It is a perfect hat for the subway.

She did some things that I still have that were inspired by a Tahiti trip that she made. Did you see any of those?

I am the only one in my family who hasn't been, though I have looked through the catalog and another Schiaparelli book. Schiapparelli deserves her fame. Miuccia Prada does to, though to her credit but fashion's "loss", she took advantage of the opportunity to go for the big volume, big dollar market.

I wore it one day (not Halloween) on the subway in a tweed suit with a tweed cape (an Invertere Inverness) with a pipe in hand, reading a book. It was hilarious. Sort of like entering a crowded elevator, standing in front and facing rear.
