    What is so wrong with this? I know his collar is undone and you can't see any sleeves, but honestly, that is a very nice suit. Looks like Kiton or Brioni.

    What a great pairing these two, as great as Liverano and Taka.

    They'll work out well for their business.

    I like the suit - he looks uncomfortable and unkempt in it, but the suit is much better than what he had been wearing in the past (structured shoulders, stiff looking stuff - see Sarkozy meeting photo below). The one pictured here has unpadded natural shoulders and an overall lightness and fluidity to it that IMO jibes better with his non-suit hoodie image. The tie width is also better. Now, the angle makes it difficult to gauge fit but something wonky is goign on with the sleeves - maybe his shirt sleeves are rolled up in there, hence no cuff showing ? Everything is just too wrinkled and messy and the open shirt button, pulled-down tie isn't a great look unless this is the end of the day and you're going for a beer with friends.

    ^ Just sayin' they both look like they don't take shit, nor do they give a shit, except about what they do.

    How much can you really tell with photos. A little, but it's not nothing.

    so basically what you're saying is that based on these photos, we can deduce that they are both two person teams comprised of one italian guy and one asian guy?

    ^ Salvatore did some postings about his philosophy regarding his craft. This in addition to the new business manager pictured with him and some recent interactions (or none) with customers here and elsewhere . . . combine all that and the two photos above and you got "Don't fuck with us."

    It works and the product is still good.

    The combination of Italian and Asian (esp. Koreans) can be, how shall I say, "really spicy!" businesswise.

    Being Italian, growing up around Italians somebody with the "don't fuck with me" attitude is not one that I would like to be a patron of, or work with. I am afraid I know the type.

    A phenomenon known as color subtraction.

    As mentioned, flash is white light - consisting of primarily red, green, blue, (and secondarily magenta, yellow, and cyan.)

    A (midnight) blue suit to the eyes will reflect blue when shone with white (flash) light, and absorb red and green.

    The same suit under yellow light (yellow = red + green) will (as above) absorb the yellow light (which is made of red and green combined), and will look black, as it relfects nothing back.

    So in evening soirées under incandescent light, a midnight blue suit will look black.
