    Dolce&Gabbana went back to their roots, slightly updated, a couple of seasons ago, with lots of fishermen's sweaters, etc... I thought that it was a great collection. Problem right now, for them, is that their market penetration is not as strong, and their image somewhat tarnished. I think that they needs some fresh PR people getting them into the "right" editorial shoots, and switch up their marketing just a bit, and they could easily be the new Gucci. Italian tailoring is back in a strong way, as is the "rustic" look. Dolce and Gabbana is strong on both counts.

    That could help immensely. Interesting slideshow if you want to see the evolution over the years. http://www.esquire.com/the-side/style-guides/mens-fashion-week/dolce-and-gabbana-history#slide-1

    Just noticed this. You funny. There's a pair of CdG trousers on eBay I kinda want, but I'm going to pass. I have very bad luck getting sizing right when buying off the internet. :violin:

    Coppens NY show is tomorrow. Excited to have a look.

    Very, very few baristas/coffee shops know how to make a decent espresso.

    without doubt, the basis for judging a place is the espresso. so simple, yet so telling.

    I can't get over how awful Forward's revamped site is. It's cumbersome and a bitch to navigate since the search defaults to the women's section. What good is being able to view more of a brand from a specific men's item page if it just sends you to the women's section?

    edit: Ha, looks like they FINALLY did change that last flaw. Must have just happened since it was still the way I described it as recently as yesterday.

    Site is still way messier than it used to be.

    Whatever happened to that black label stuff that Filson was supposed to make? Did that every materialize? Where was it it sold? From a quality of workmanship and material standpoint they are a great brand, but currently everything they make is for people who are morbidly obese.
