Dear Folks: In the late 90s, before I left and returned to NYC, I went to sample sales twice a year at an importer of Italian luxury goods. I recall they had an office in a small building in the east 50s, about ten floors up. Their quarters had a cleanly modern style. The goods were knit shirts, sweaters, ties, belts, shoes, some outerwear. Nothing with a superfamous designer name, but first-class goods, luxuriously made in conservative styles, the sort of things that would become the house brand at Bergdorf's, I imagine. One thing I bought from them was a jacket in glove soft black leather with knit black wool sleeves. But it has no maker's label, and neither does anything I can recall having bought there. I'd love to go to these sample sales again. Does anyone know the name of this importer?
