    I'm really liking that jacket. I've got a hard-on for roped shoulders.

    That doodad is a pin. It is red coral, a symbol of good luck and the corporate logo for Isaia, the Italian fashion company. It is worn, above, by Isaia employees at a fashion event. Some retailers sell Isaia jackets and suits with the red coral pin.

    In Neapolitan lore, the red coral (corrallo rosso) is not only good luck, but it helps ward off il malocchio -- the evil eye. In Naples and the Amalfi coast you see red coral symbols all over the place, along with its counterpart - a harlequin/jester representing il malocchio.

    Hence Isaia's second line - Corrallorosso.

    Why have so many pictures gone missing in this thread? Is there a problem with SF or is PSG removing some of them from Photobucket?

    My Photobucket account was over 60 pages. It was hard to find the good stuff so I edited out the weaker pics. There isn't anything wrong with SF.
