Pics 1&2 he looks like a stylish V.I. Lenin. Maybe Lenin's corpse needs a complete makeover to attract more tourists.

Don't tell him please or be ready for an ongoing 30 page debate on the merits and shortcomings of Rubinacci JR.

Well, at least you know your comments got through. So much on-line is just farts in the wind. Who from SF is going to Naples? Foo, Whnay? You? Quote of the piece: Shampoo? You're asking someone with no hair! But no, I use Pantene.

I like:

Watch?
Men wear watches to put something on their arms. I have many bracelets and they give me the same feeling.
...but he wears a watch in at least 2 of the pictures on the left.

Maybe they will tell me.
They think I am the devil of classic [clothing]!​

I don't think I'd ever be able to afford his stuff, but I do enjoy his style. i think the fact that people talk about it, good or bad, is what he wants to accomplish. Anyone can wear the same conservative stuff and look good, but to be a great dresser I think you need to be polarizing, just like he is. And he's a Napoli supporter. Rumor has it he designed this kit:

Or at least he should have...

Interesting article - love how they linked to that absurd SF thread.

NYR: Nice shoes - are those Newtons?

LUCA, WE KNOW YOU'RE READING THIS THREAK. MAKE AN ACCOUNT AND POAST!!!! You and Spalla can have a cage brawl. You and Mafoofan can do each other.

I think NYR should post his pics in every thread, regardless of the topic.
