    Evidently Peter Jackson has begun filming Silmarillion. The first scenes were shot in Pitti Uomo.

    Those hats are silly. They scream "Here, take my photo". My older sister used to wear one of those in her neo-hippie days. Oh well....such is Pitti

    One of their innovations is the thinner "matriz" sole, as seen on the right shoe, below.:

    Tomorrow, since it's really late here, and the 5 course meal I just ate is making me sleepy, outfits from Kiton.

    ^ The innovation has the appearance, to a layman, of a standard blake/rapid construction from any Italian maker. I'm guessing that since it's an "innovation" it is still Goodyear welted, but the aesthetic doesn't appeal to me.

    Great thread. Eagerly looking forward to more.
