1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The khaki suit behind Rubinacci looks like it could be a real winner. Who is that?

    Are you trying to hone your own haughty gaze?

    Tepdoc to say that Mariano is no better than a unethical turkish rug salesman in....3....2....1

    Mariano loves to sale , that's not a lie...He is a shrewd operator , nothing wrong with that.

    I thought it wasn't so much the shrewdness or business acumen as much as the colossal Rubinacci advertizing budget.

    I thought about 90% of what you pay goes toward advertizing.

    Also, I've read he has this ancient panpipe...from the days when the Greeks owned the bay...and when he blows into it, [​IMG], whnay., Poo, and the others go into a River Dance.

    Are these rumors unfounded?

    I'm note sure how to interpret a DB shawl vest with unbuttoned cuffs and unbuttoned BD collar, but I really want to see [​IMG] in this ensemble. - B
    This is a picture taken during an event organized in Naples by the Cavalleresco Ordine dei Guardiani delle Noveporte. In this picture Mariano Rubinacci was trying a vest made for the tight of the wedding ceremony of the daughter. It's really important to know the source of images to understand well. http://www.noveporte.it/taccuino/tau...&idcategoria=1

    Tepdoc, who lives right above the Rubinacci flagship store at the Carlyle, is the expert on it.

    Perhaps he will weigh in.

    Thank you...I thought it had to be a lark. The senior Rubinacci is nearly always well turned out.

    This page is losing its comic impulse.

    There is still room for a few more posts, however.

    I once owned a Rubinacci jacket that I almost burned inside of a BBQ. I believe sho'nuff has it now.

    [​IMG] I realize it's not actually a berkshire, but I had to combine tasty meat with a pig/hog in a jacket/vest.

    Saw this in person and it's definitely more impressive than pictures. The light horn looks great. I totally want to jack the idea and replace my gold blazer buttons with light horn now.
