    I found this blog that's kind of amusing. I like some of the ties shown on the cravats worth wearing page.

    Btw, would I be in the minority if I believe men in kilts shouldn't jump? [​IMG]

    the manolo's 'galleryof the horror" is interesting...

    "The Uggs

    Manolo says, here you see the Ugg Classic Short in the baby pink. The only peoples who should be wearing this boot are the pre-teen girls who love the Hello Kitty.

    With this boot there is no of the glamour, or the sex appeal, or the style. It is comfortable, but that is all. Worse, this boot, it is the trend that has outlasted its charm.

    Once, the Manolo, he saw the aging minx the Shannon Doherty coming out of the Malibu Country Market, and she had on the Uggs and the miniskirt of the denim.



    Perhaps she saw the Manolo frowning at the ugliness of her feetwear, for she scowled at the Manolo as if to say "you are the insect who is not worthy to gaze upon the shoes of the Shannon Doherty."

    The Manolo, he was all whatever biotch, I am the Manolo, and your shoes, they are ridiculous. You are the woman approaching the middle age, but you insist on dressing like the 12-year-old.

    Manolo says, do not be the Shannon Doherty. Do not wear the Uggs."

    I was in Vegas in July and visited a shoe store in the Wynn casino (across from the Lattanzi store). They carried two VERY NICE styles of Manolo Blahnik monkstraps for men. The salesperson/buyer explained that Mr. Blahnik was visiting the Wynn and they convinced him to produce a mens shoe and that this was the very first offering from MB. I wondered if he was legit . . . I bought a pair of ostrich Testoni and left the MB in the store. Has anyone else seen these shoes???

    I bought them last year, so they were out prior to July. They were purchased at Jeffery in NY and they also had a soft suede chukka.

    Not when I carry them home from the store and take them out of the bag to photograph.
