    Vox, she is very considerate of her customers. Consider that she did not compare the ease that it is to fit the wonder that is my physique with yours.

    We chatted about Kiton a bit, and we agreed that the jacket shape Kiton does is a bit barrel-shaped.

    We did not have to say your name aloud.

    So did she tell you to lay off the pasta?

    + ?

    you guys talking to vox?

    yeah - the answer for you is in your avatar

    [Mina calling out to Dino...forgive me, but my Italian is not good]

    Mina: "Vaste spalle, vita stretta."

    Dino: "Si."

    Mina: "Così differente che Ed e Greg."

    Dino: "Si."

    Mina: "Quei due dovrebbero realmente mangiare meno pasta."

    Dino: "Ma è sveglio quando lucidate le loro pance!"

    I have this as "But it's fun to rub their bellies!" - any better translation?

    I also had a lovely meeting with Mina and Dino today, and I look forward to having some jackets and a suit made up by them. -LR

    But you surely took your wallet out?

    I showed her the US note that has my bust and my motto: "I am the style Lorax. I speak for the steez." But in Latin, the language of the Romans.

    Both things can be adjusted to your taste.

    I am on the pudgy side of 5'10" and I like the height and width of the lapels as I think it works well with my frame but if I got lower notches, it wouldn't be the end of the world either.


    I mentioned it to her and I'm not too worried about it. I also noticed that the examples she had on display in her studio looked more like what I want. I have a fat head and figured those lapels would accentuate that.

    It would be like if you ran a place, with lots of berating and recrimination...and a certain joylessness except when suffering is occuring.

    So, like the CE, then.

    I don't know, I would think skinnier lapels would make a fat head look fatter.

    BTW, Mina and Dino are in Boston right now, at Copley House but I think today is voxsartoria day so you would have to go tomorrow.

    that outline on the floor of my pic, have not been able to figure out what was there before. Freestanding urinal? Al Fresco toilet?
