Looks like ol' Pete is a bit behind schedule -- didn't that timeline have him opening in the US last year?
I agree with you. That's why I used the term "world domination" rather tongue in cheek. There is that pyramid of business progression, aiming for sportswear and accessories. Also on the front page it says: Paris, Tokyo, New York. A bit like John Lobb (London) who still put London, Paris, New York into their shoes: Paris they sold some thirty years ago and were they were ever represented in NY, apart from the odd measuring session (maybe between the wars)? Â I believe Corthay's Tokyo shop is due to open next month and the New York connection has made it to a vacation in the Hamptons. (Where even Mr Grayson could not lure him from, to come to Manhattan for a measuring session.) Actually I like Monsieur Corthay's laidback attitude: "I'm "˜ere on "˜olidays." I wonder if he can still do that with his new financial backers.
