    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hopped accross the street to check it out, but store was filled with the LVMH suits. If you're running for Pimp of the Year Honors, they have your shoe. A nice green and purple combo.

    I can only imagine what the hip-hop set will do when they get a hold of Berluti. First Timberland, then Prada, now Berluti?

    I don't know if Hip Hop guys will wear shoes from Berluti. Most of them won't even know what it is. I do not know Hip Hop stars who wear Attolini or Kiton.

    All it's going to take is for one or two rap singers to include something like: "wearing my Berluti's, gettin' some bootie..." in a "song." A few shots in a music video, and Boom -- next thing you know the Berluti store will have low-rider Bentley's and Hummers with chromed 22's lined up in front.

    They should offer to make some custom designs for P. Diddy and Andre 3000, then have those guys photographed in GQ, Esquire, Vitals, etc.

    I wonder how the hip-hop crowd will take to the Frankenstein stitching...

    And then they have to decide what to do with the third shoe.

    Are you kidding, they'd love it. Also Berluti would have to include a model with bullet holes. Ya know what I'm sayin'? [​IMG]

    Besides the point but Gianni Versace Couture has very lovely silk shirts. I hope Berluti doesn't become the hip-hop crowd's latest discovery. Would Andy Warhol, and James Joyce be happy? Andy Warhol might.

    This shirt is perfect for a spy trying to hide among tapestry.

    Obviously I'd never wear one, but the old Versace silk shirts (designed by Gianni himself, I think) are quite stunning.

    I hate to pull the trigger on the r-word, but the undertones of racism that pervade this thread are more than a bit unsettling, particularly in a forum that prides itself in its civility.

    would you have said a thing if we were dissing rocker clothing?

    It's not clothing so much as unfortunate assumptions and general ignorance.

    A lot of it can probably be attributed to being really, really out of touch. "Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by ignorance," I suppose.

    From Page Six today:

    "...dapper legal eagle Ed Hayes, who represented the estate of Andy Warhol, had to buy himself a pair of bespoke $4,000 Berluti shoes when he learned that Warhol liked to wear them."
