    For those of us whose local bookstores haven't yet received the "Best of the Best" issue - care to share the article on Mr. Kabbaz?

    That would be good. I think there's a Wal-mart in Germany somewhere. It'd save me the trip to the USA [​IMG]

    I understand there's a coupon for a free Kabbaz short sleeved shirt in every issue.

    Well, guys, thanks to all of you hyping the WalMart thing, K-mart jumped in and upped the ante. But just before I signed that deal, Target (Taar-jay) offered concessions in fifteen stores right by the front entrance. So starting next Monday, the Cashmere Bourbon Drinkin' Shirt will be available in the Exclusive Taarjay model (that's the one with manchettes Francois) at the low, low price of only 1995 (place the decimal point correctly and win one for free). Seriously though, thank you all very much for your kind thoughts. It is greatly appreciated. With the magazine selling on newstands for a whopping $10 per issue, the June "Best of the Best" Robb Report will not be available online during its newstand shelf life. Hence, there is no (legitimate) link that I know of. Here's what the press says about it: MALIBU, CA- Scheduled to hit newsstands on May 24, Robb Report magazine's 17th annual "Best of the Best" offers readers an unprecedented selection of products and services that exemplify the very finest that the international luxury world has to offer. The culmination of a year's search for the most extraordinary products and services, "Best of the Best" features premium-quality automobiles, yachts, jewelry, vacations, wines, fashion and other exceptional items. Style Robb Report presents its favorite menswear collections and accessories, as well as the ultimate bespoke wardrobe.

    that's a good price, but it must be a bitch trying to come up with change for $.005.

    Easily, actually. Change is one complete hole from a 3.2mm Mother-of-Pearl button.

    Thanks to the Kabbaz Pink Shirt with pink buttons in 'Departures' I got the idea to order a pink Barba with pink buttons. I picked it up today, really love it. So thanks for the idea Alex [​IMG] If there are any nice ideas in Robb Report, maybe somebody likes to share them [​IMG]

    I remember Alex Kabbaz making the argument that his customers don't buy any of his shirts because they're trendy or 'cool.' But, doesn't such infomercials serve to attract the very people to seek him out that he proclaims he despises? A lot of the readers of Robb's Report are....
