    ^^^Luciano Barbera's amber glasses go nicely with the brown jacket. I love a good color compliment.

    Loro Piana lookbooks always come correct.

    And I love collecting the physical copies of the BC ones as well.

    The LP books make want to go on vacation. They have a relaxed, romantic feel like you are headed to the coast of France. Dressed stylishly, of course.

    Their marketing is exceptional in that it is so in-sync with their look.

    Speaking of LP and brown, this is the fabric I'm having Mina make up in a 3-patch notch lapel sportcoat. It's essentially this year's version of what Parker had made made last year. The color is a shade lighter in-real-life.
