    I have seen these really cool cloth (silk, wool, ?) flower boutonnieres on some Italian blogs and I wonder if anybody knows where to find them. You can see what I am talking about on http://www.lardini.it/ When you go to the collection section you will see them featured on the blazers and suits. They really look nice for /spring/summer. Does anyone know where to find these online or in the U.S.?

    They were everywhere at Pitti. Fun, but too ubiquitous.

    Wait, you smell that?

    I have NEVER seen these in CA, so might actually be unique out here in SoCal. I'd be a smash with the ladies.

    Now I just need to kop.

    Same with my uncivilized part of the world (vancouver). I check ASW's site, but didn't see them on there.

    What's wrong with a real flower?

    I'm in Korea and I'll have a look for those interested. I'll check with them and see what they have in stock. Price is about $22-30US according to the website. Give me a few days to get back to you. But honestly, what Manton says makes more sense, why not a real flower? Heck of a lot cheaper.
