    Just in case you felt the selection of models and colorways was too limited at Barney's NY, fear not. Berluti is opening a standalone store in NYC on 76th St and Madison. Don't know if they will be offering bespoke or custom coloring.

    Odd choice of location, I should think. That is about four blocks north of 'the shopping district'

    Still plenty of prime retail-real estate up there. In the next few years I'm willing to be that's where the newer, exclusive shops will be in Manhattan. Alot of the truely exclusive retailers are now avoiding the tourist trap known as 5th avenue, with the NBA and Disney store and all.

    Even Gucci has a store up on Madison; they know the one of 5th is only for tourists and people who take pictures in front of it. Vacca is opening a store on Madison in the near future as well.

    Yes, Vacca's new store and the Gucci store on Madison are in what I call the 'shopping district' - called such because I only ever find myself going into shops on Madison in the 60s and low 70s. There, there are some the most expensive and exclusive shops in the city... hence I said Olga's new pad seems a bit out of place, what amongst several women's dress shops.

    BTW, I happen to think that stretch of Fifth in the fifties to be nearly unbearable. I don't consider that area a great retail area, however so it is such historically.

    Like I was saying to a friend the other day, "being poor sucks, but being poor in New York City REALLY sucks." koji

    I think Berluti has a few travelling shoemakers. They should go to the New York store more often than the Hong Kong store. For custom antiquing you can always just pick out to model and have them do the antiquing in Paris and ship to you.

    My shop's on that block. A very "shopping" neighborhood. 960 5th is around the corner and a lot of good clients stay at the Carlyle and The Mark.

    My favorite hotel in NY, although I do wish they'd change the spelling of their name [​IMG] (Marc) Grayson

    I prefer The Carlyle because of Bemelman's, IMO the quintessential New York bar. It's gonna go to the dogs now because Audrey quit, but it was fun while it lasted.

    The passing of the legendary Bobby Short, while a sad loss in general, is a particular loss for The Carlyle, where he entertained NY Society for decades.  Coincidentally, I'll be at the Carlyle shortly to see Savile Row tailor Joe Morgan, of Chittleborough & Morgan, who's staying at the hotel while in NY.  With The Mark hotel, I especially enjoy the atmosphere of their "living room".  Also, one of the nicest bathrooms to duck into if you're in the area and nature calls.  Finally, La Maison Du Chocolat, Madison Ave near 78th St., offers some of the finest chocolate around.

    La Maison also has the best chocolate and sulce de leche ice cream outside of Buenos Aires. Stop by and see us when you are in the 'hood. We're on the opposite side of the street than The Carlyle (the safari store.)

    Small world--I walk by your store often. Charming place. La Maison also serves the best hot chocolate I've ever had, in that tiny room in the rear of the store. Sorry for the digression--I have a one track mind for anything chocolate.

    Stop in some time. We sell absolutely nothing you need, but a lot of really neat things (at least I think so.)

    Hasn't stopped me before---I've been known to purchase many things I don't really need. While I don't have any African excursions in the pipeline, I do watch the Travel Channel [​IMG] Grayson
