    Don't think it is for aesthetic purposes....he's a Caucasian living in the Middle East.

    It's not for aesthetic purposes in that it's incredibly ugly...but on a hot day it does mean I can open it with the remote and park my car in the shade. Alas, I'm moving anyway as the company that rented it for me no longer employs me.

    Erm...I do live here by choice though...mainly because most of my friends are local.

    Mimo, that was intended to fall somewhere in your half-joking/joking/dick range.

    Is "Midnight Blue" too dark for an SF Blazersuit? 270gms / 8.5 oz Superfine Summer Merino Wool

    [​IMG]
    I apologize that this picture is so small =/

    Anyone know where I can get some reasonably priced Minni's fresco in Navy/RAF/Tobacco?

    Is there a F/W equivalent for an SF Blazersuit? Flannel?

    Sorry to say it was me. I had no idea that he removes items manually from the web shop. It showed as available and I thought that he had more than one. Since this is a good natured thread, I will gladly let you have it...

    See below.

    Stop it! I'm getting an erection. And I'm at work.

    I have a suspicion that all this Capelli tie grabbery started after I posted some pics a few days back. Which I am now regretting, as in fact I wanted that tie too. [​IMG]

    That is very kind of you. I believe he doesn't remove the items manually usually, but since he suggested to take it off for me and then promised to do so, I think he had to do it manually.

    I don't blame you, in fact I appreciate your offer. But this was a mistake on behalf of mr. Patrizio. You shouldn't feel any regret. My post was a mere "fyi" in case of the buyer not liking the tie when seeing it in real life as I would be glad to take it off his hands instead of going through the process of puting it on B/S. That said, I hope you enjoy it. If anyone, I'm glad you grabbed it. Wear in good health.


    Lol, seems like half the forum was out for it. I guess we'll have to require from mr. Patrizio to restock it.

    FYI, I did. And he's not.

    I think that navy / RAF blue is far better color for a BlazerSuit. You also are going to want a fabric that has a bit more texture than the one pictured. I think that flannel works well for a F/W BlazerSuit and that Manton had one made up like this.
