Book synergy. Let me know what you think of that book. It’s in my TBR pile right now. Thinking I’ll start on it in early January.

Its a great read. I have about 45 pages left, which is good because it’s due on Wednesday and I can’t renew. Then I’m on to Snowden’s book to read what he has to say.

😂 What’s the word on Giorgio Armani black label nowadays? Is it still produced by Vestimenta? Are most pieces fused still? I’ve heard someone say that they moved production in house and most of their offerings are half to full canvas on the more expensive items. I’m aware that no Armani piece is likely produced to a standard anywhere close to the price points they command. Generally due to the forum, I’ve tended to stay away from GA.

I know everybody thinks A Little Life is amazing, so let me know what you think. I ... did not think that. I mean, it was good, and I read the entire thing, but there were like a few weird tense inconsistencies and other things that jumped out at me. (I think I'm remembering that right; it's been a while.).

Black Label still sells pretty well in my opinion, even the older pieces. Quality has never been good, but that doesn't matter to the people who just wanna wear some Armani & feel like a baller in their minds.

True thrift L.B.M. 1911 size 56 2 euro

I feel like there is small chance that this suit is made by great maker that is unknown for me but I would be grateful for help.
It is triple patched MTM suit (marked 695 pounds I can have it for less than 50 euros) made for Flannels (UK store). It seems well made but I can't check it in hands.

Yeah any time I jump into a book that has virtually all positive reviews, I go into it with a bit of cynicism for some reason. I'm glad to hear someone who didn't fully love it. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I enjoy most books (except for one Fern Michaels book I attempted to read 10 years ago) but I'm trying to keep expectations relatively low.
