Re: Umbrellas - I'm not sure how the Fox full-stick umbrellas compare to Pasotti, Maglia etc. I suspect that the HY umbrellas are made by Pasotti, but I don't know about the Kent Wang umbrellas. I'm very, very happy with my Pasotti umbrella and it cost quite a bit less than the Fox. Browsing the SMH website over breakfast this morning, I noticed this execrable puff piece for Thomas Pink, which is opening a stand-alone store. Unsurprisingly, the article employs a colossal amount of exaggeration, including the following: Pink is owned by the massive luxury-focused Louis Vuitton group and Witts describes Pink as "probably positioned as the most prestigious shirt and neckwear brand in the world". "Everyone strives to emulate Thomas Pink," he says. "The mystique around Pink is its uniqueness and its quirkiness." Sigh... Thankfully, some people take the bullsh!t in the article to task in the comments section.
