    An American I know in the UK had a female British co-worker who normally wore trousers to work. One day she wore a skirt to which he blithely replied: "Oh, you're not wearing pants today!"

    But I'm sure Stitch's pants are fabulous. Rota's done to the bone, Stitch?

    I believe the "he" you are referring to is Google Translate! I bet that is what Gianni uses (or something similar) and it is terrible.

    Annoying when he quotes every damn picture that some one posted... only to add "nice colors."

    Example: We were discussing the sign-up sheet for the custom run of donkey flannel and Goldfinger tweed in the cloth thread. He comes around and starts clogging up the flow of information with his ridiculous posts.

    /End rant

    FTFY AYO!!!

    also, sorry that did not work out for you jungle, thats a shame because its a lovely jacket.


    lawlz. my pleasure. it was great seeing you, and you have a lovely wife. you should make concessions for her because you clearly got the better end of this deal.


    i cant hate on gianni, he is too sweet. clearly english is not his spoken tongue, and i find his posts to be heart warming.

    It's nothing personal. I'm sure he's a nice guy

    The quality of his posts just suck. Language barrier is no excuse for superfluous posts that clog up discussions

    Gianni posts actual content in the PS and ties threads, plus he has commissioned some Bestettis and posted about that. I know that my tolerance for a lower signal-to-noise ratio is greater than many, but even so, I'm surprised this bugs you so much.

    I agree to some extent. I appreciate his comments, but he should have an eye for colour/patterns, being a tie maker and all. It would be nice if he shared that knowledge by offering advice that goes beyond "elegant combination", even if it's google translated.

    Clearly, you realize how it could rub people the wrong way.

    A sampling of Gianni's recent posts over a 24 hours period. (This is the stuff he posts outside his own thread)

    I'd hazard that 95% of Gianni's non-Passagio thread posts are "noise," in the words of @sugarbutch
