P.S: l am a really bad traveller. Plane travel causes massive head aches. l can't travel.
I'm a terrrific traveller. A few things that help a lot. 1) A good meal a couple of hours before the flight. Not too filling, but filling. That probably means no sprouts. Some antipasta, greens, a steak. A good cappucino. 2) Bring a toothbrush and tootpate onboard. A clean mouth and some water splashed onto your face will make you feel a lot better. 3) Midflight (especially on a long one), go to the back, and do some stretches and some uhnobstrusive calisthenics. Pushups are good. Gets the blood running a little. 4) Drink lots of water. 6) If all else fails, Advil usually does the trick. Marc, I too would love to knock you out like they did Mr. T, just so you can have a look at some Berlutis and EGs.
Who cares if the shoes are entirely factory made either. Berluti falls into the same category of Dior Homme, and pretty much all Women's wear. Construction is meaningless (though, I'm sure on Berluti it is top notch)... it's all about looks and style. A category in which EG doesn't compare. No one is going to look at an EG shoe and be like, "wow, those are hot shoes." With Berluti, it's a bit different. You guys miss the point about product alot.
No, some of these dudes certainly do not understand. I've pretty muich given up writing that nearly all fashion, including the recent penchant for "classic fashion that will last forever" is fleeting.
