    Actually T4 doesn't have to chose. He has matching cars to go with his shoes. If you think his shoe collection is great you should see his garage. Incredible.

    ...the next obvious step would be to have Riccardo make bespoke leather linings to match the cars to these beauties. Just think of the effect this would have on some eager young women.

    Experience suggests it's best to keep the hanky panky to textiled environments, rather than leather...

    i wore it for two days when bestetti was in nl
    but i did not like the 'brightness' of the colour
    so i asked him to take it back and do something
    to 'age' the colour...

    colour removal and recolour..

    T4, I love the crescent apron design...beautifully executed by Bestetti and well thought out by you.

    Did FNB or RJMan influence you to try the band aid coloring?
