I thought that's what he meant but I'm not so sure. I may have jumped the gun there!
Do you have a secret to cleaning white shoes? I have my Stan Smith still but I don't wear them because they are dirty. Soap and water didn't work that great for me.
While I was there, the mainline tailored stuff (suits, SCs) was made exclusively in the Rhode Island plant -- all USA made. Periodically a garment or two would be sourced out of GFT's Italy plant, or maybe out of Canada, but it was super rare.
GFT eventually broke up and Abboud went solo. I think they stayed USA made for a while but I think that changed -- definitely by the time of the MWhouse purchase.
Her name was Sonia, and that's all I remember. Tall, rail thin, dark hair, delicate but strikingly beautiful Italian features. Stunning.
That whole company was a fool's paradise of hot women.
Regardless of if it's her or another person doing the fabric purchasing, they still do a hell of a job. How long ago were you there?
The briefcase? It was elephant
Wow. I seriously thought that was an exaggeration. How thick IS elephant leather? Bison runs about 3/8", maybe.
Posted this earlier this week but just now checked the size tag...a big boy, no doubt. Name tag inside one pocket - dude's a director of something or the other at Hilton.
Remind me - "C" length is short, correct?
And once we get above - say - IT 60 it's not a straight "subtract 10 = US" - - so IT 66 is more like a US 58, would y'all say? I'll still measure but wasn't sure if there was a hard and fast rule.
C is short, yes.

I have a fantastic solid charcoal suit by Zegna that's a 50C (40S)...looking to trade for a suit of similar quality in a 50R/40R. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.
