    Going to disagree with you on this one. I feel that some signature items/features that are highly branded are beautiful enough to stand on their own merits.

    I have an affinity for Isaia so I guess thats why I usually leave my lapel pin on.
    But in addition I simply like the lore behind the coral and 99.999% of people I meet have no clue what it is or have even heard of Isaia, so it feels like less of an advertisement in my eyes.

    Simply a nice accent to me. :)

    ^ That's pretty close to the percentage of people who routinely dress like shit, so I'm not sure if the data is helpful.

    I'm fairly certain this topic has come up on at least one or two occasions in the past, nonetheless: a) as a fashion brand logo, it is fairly attractive and unusual; b) not sure as to the veracity in terms of % of folks who would recognize it, but I'd concur it's diminishingly small among the general populace; c) that said, it's fairly well recognized here (and one would be positively "shocked" to witness such a display at Pitti: "Dear God...!"), therefore I'd say it's somewhat akin to the single unbuckled strap dbbl monk, or the partially unbuttoned surgeon's cuffs on one's jacket, in that it's a rather obvious and some might say cliche gesture. Outside of SF it's no doubt fine (though some people might think you pretentious for pinning anything on your lapel, short of an American flag [ in USA of course]), only problem is you're posting it here, so you will likely receive some less than positive feedback.

    AS, I liked the NYE rig, but I think black shoes would have been nicer for the evening.

    I haven't any other than a pair of black bit loafers. Goals for 2015.

    I like the top block, but think the pants would work better if they were darker.

    Agreed, even in the southern hemisphere, northern lights are sometimes to be seen. :)
