So, a couple of things...
A few days ago, I asked if anyone knew the maker of Zegna's sunglasses. I sent them an email and got a response:

Bezug nehmend auf Ihre Frage kann ich Ihnen die Info geben, dass unsere Brillen durch die Firma DeRigo produziert werden.
Hier sind auch die Adressen der zwei Optiker in XXX die unsere Brillen anbieten.
It turns out they're from the Italian company DeRigo. They also make sunglasses for Police (the brand, not the actual police. Nor Police, the band). I was a bit surprised, but I've been really happy with them.
Next, I (finally) found a couple of things today. Terrible pictures because A) my camera is broken, B) it's nothing so special that you need high quality pictures and C) I'm a bit lazy.
A pair of Tod's loafers, size 12. I haven't cleaned them up yet, but they're in decent shape. I've had good luck moving Tod's on eBay.
Unknown pocket square. Silk and made in England.
Lacoste pullover in a size 7 (big). Nothing exciting.
I left an orphaned Corneliani suit jacket in black. I could probably resell it, but I have one sitting around waiting to go on eBay and I'm holding my breath on it. I may swing by tomorrow and pick the other one up as well.
Now, if the furniture people on here see this, I'd like your opinion. In fact, I'll take anyone's opinion. I found a leather chair and it supposedly dates from the '70s. I really like the chair as it has a smaller footprint. All I know about it is that it has a heavy chrome base and no manufacturer's sticker. We're moving to a different apartment in December/January, so our current monstrous chair will need to go. I've never been in love with it anyway, so I'm not too sad about that. However, would something like this go in a living room? Is it more of an office chair?
If it were brown, I would already own it. If it had a footrest, I'd already own it. However, my wife turned her nose up at it. Great condition on the leather, a few small tears on the corners due to moving it, I believe. It was €59....what do you guys think??
