1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I love this.

    The totally undone cuff buttons are too much for me.

    Four guys at a party ...Maybe they were there to watch the footie/ have some beers or helping him moving something heavy in his suite..

    I remember going to a club years ago with some Business school friends and one had a bj from a tranny...He was a red blooded straight rugby player and I couldn't get my head around the fact that he didn't see that as being a gayish act...

    Nothing against tranny especially grotesque ones but if somebody can explain me that way of thinking to broaden my mind..


    lasbar, fellow twins father, consider this: outlaw bikers (a very homophobic group) have been known to allow 'confirmed bachelors' perform certain services in exchange for $$$ (paid, not charged). "The day I let one of those f*gs touch me for anything less than a $20 is the day you can call me queer!".

    Romafan , nothing will ever surprise me anymore since I met , 20 years ago, 2 black skinheads...

    I thought to start with they have a great sense of humour , self-deprecation or a profound lack of intelligence.. The latter was confirmed to me very quickly after a few sentences..

    Absolutely surreal...

    As Lapo is still, for some reason, alive and kicking, I'm bumping this old thread with a caricature my reader drew. Do enjoy.

    This was a worthwhile necro: from the clothing on display, to the newly added caricature, to Lasbar's unsubtle attempts to test everyone's comfort with his emergent tranny fetish. A truly magnificent SF time capsule.

    Lapo is simply the best.
    he doesn't care about nothing and what he does is what is passing in his mind in that time.
    I love him..but I really love his grandfather..my avatar..
    Gianni God bless you!!!!!

    Personally, I think he gained the major part of the media attenction he has thanks to his family and his... hum... controversial lifestyle.
    Of course, he may have inherited some taste concerning style and clothing from his grandfather... who easily wins on the elegance and "sprezz" side.

    However, some of his stuff is surely inspiring, in a disturbing way.

    I think the glasses are an ode to Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp version).. The hair and hat Mad Hatter (also Johnny Depp version).. Lapo would make a nice Tim Burton character.

    Lapo is Lapo...

    He is 20% genius and 80% too much money..

    A mix of provocation , genius. drug induced creativity and blase attitude..
    Lapo can afford the best tailoring and shoemaking and has chosen to be creative and innovative..

    He is in my eye most of them off the mark but his more classical outfits can be great..

    He is the marmite of the sartorial world.

    You haven't been around long enough to remember Mr. Moo, who is truly missed.

    for those who want to see Lapo Elkann in person, he's going to be at the Pebble Beach Concours D' Elegence car show this weekend

    I was supposed to be going, and would have taken pictures if I saw him, but can't make it this time

    just an fyi for those who might be there

    btw, the Pebble Beach show is probably one of the best events in the country - a must see at some point in your lives
