    Poachers suck, Matt. Killing defenseless animals is a crime and you know it.

    Legal ivory these days comes from Siberian mammoth tusks. It sounds odd, but there is enough of that stuff for the Russian government to keep it legal.

    No freaking clue. I was hoping a reader could tell me.

    Isn't fresco just a brand / trade name like crispaire, etc... ? All of them being hopsack woven wool cloths?



    or not

    I will squarely blame this blog and Foofy in general for inspiring a dream last night that I was getting fitted for a Rubinacci suit. Sadly, waking reality forced me to realize that this dream is not within my budget yet...

    I predict great things for your blog. You might sell it for a million dollars like icanhascheezburger or get picked up into a tv show on the fashion network. Alternately perhaps GQ will hire you as some sort of antisartorialist who blogs about clothes no one can afford as opposed to clothes no one can wear. Or in the line of elgreco's fantasies about you perhaps Rubinacci/Matuozzo will pick you up as a brand ambassador the way Yann Debelle de Montby is for Dunhill. Matuozzo might have to sever relations with T4 first though...

    While Foofy is precious, you have distorted my words!
