    Congratulations!

    Why am I not surprised to learn that you speak fluent Italian? Stitchy didn't ask, so I will. No shoe circle?

    No. I suppose not.

    Thanks Dig! Great to see you back around these parts.

    I would have asked, but I didn't know the word for "shircle" in Italian.

    lastly, props to unbel on taking a pic standing next to LB, and still looking good. i imagine he would make many look less than stellar, comparatively, lol.

    Grazie, Signor Estitchy! It's a photo that I hope to look back on fondly for many years to come.

    Great interview with a remarkable man of style. Well done. I look forward to Part 2.

    As far as,"if you find a more beautiful scarf, let me know"....here it is. Well maybe not MORE beautiful , but as nice. In fact owning both would make perfect sense to me :)

    (And, of course, this is a Luciano Barbera scarf)

    Speaking of his scarves, did you ever see his vintage map scarf from last year? I saw a photo but could never find it for sale. :(

    Thank you for sharing, UBR! Signore B. seems like the most cordial of fellows.

    I'm reminded of a quote of his: 'Any time I see a man playing golf or tennis in his jacket, I know he and I could be friends.'
