It's really weird how those things work. I have caught myself thinking "I wonder why I haven't ever found XYZ brand," and moments or days later, it pops up somewhere. I don't know whether it's because I'm suddenly more focused on finding it or pure coincidence.
I went through 300+ ties yesterday and thought "I haven't found a Drakes, even vintage." Two minutes later and I had one in hand. I thought the same about Kiton and Hermés. No one in my city sells Hermés, but they do in Vienna. I had really hoped to find my first.
I had simply assumed that you had found other Brioni stuff simply because you hit so many stores. Congrats, then, on your first jacket! You did really well on it!
I actually just read the recap of a survey that discussed grammar in written business communication. The respondents said that they don't put a lot of thought into their own writing, nor do they feel that it is important. However, those same respondents said that grammar was very important in emails they receive. The managers even said that terrible grammar was a worse offense than being overcharged.
I don't have a problem with typos or mistakes for the most part. I just get distracted when I read sentences that have misplaced commas or lack punctuation. I didn't mean to single Ian out on this, but it's true. I have no doubt that as he gets older, he will likely change his writing style.
I personally feel that writing (especially in the business environment) tells you a lot about the person. It gives indications of their attention to detail, education, and sensitivity to readers. If you've ever received an email that is simply a block of text rather than separated thoughts, you know what I mean. It's hard to read and the writer didn't think about the reader's point of view.
