  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

We know who your boss is.

Silvio probably appreciates him as much as he does Ruby the Heart Stealer

In different ways of course.

BTW: Do you know who does Berlusconi's suits?

It used to be Caraceni. There was also an article probably a year ago that Berlusconi wanted to move to Kiton for his suits.

That seems entirely appropriate for the leader of a nation where the fashion industry is one of the major contributors to the GDP. Palin was derided for the value of her wardrobe because couched her entire campaign on the fact that she was folksy and just like the average American.

It's possible--perhaps likely--that all the ties were not for personal use. Like I said, he gives a lot of Marinellas away.

When considered as a percentage of his net worth, it's much less than I've spent on ties.

Sorry guys and gals, but I am having a hard time believing this. He would have to purchase approximately 55 ties (assuming an average $200 each) a month and that would be at full retail (I have even taken into account VAT.) I am having a hard time believing that anyone who would purchase 55 ties a month would have to pay full retail. Let's say he gets a 20% quantity discount, that equals to 70 ties per month. Good grief, does Marinella even have that many different ties?
