    The Genovese demands contemplation.



    I have an irrational disgust for that store.

    Never been in there; anyway, it was just a thought.

    I must admit the pics I've seen or what I've read about it has hardly made it seem like my kind of place. BUT, I remembered reading that he started doing a whole line of alligator accessories (everything from cigar cases to steamer trunks). They looked decent from the pics I saw, but I wasn't sure if they might just be rebranded mid-grade whatever with a Vacca price tag. [​IMG] It's kind of depressing to see a $15k bag with thirty cent YKK zippers and crappy lining.

    Now, everyone will get one.

    that would make for an interesting photo, everyone crowding around in a belt circle
    it would be liek looking down a wagon wheel


    Fantastic, thanks!

    Anyone else in Italy you'd recommend who does this sort of belt construction?



    Uggh. Might as well be plastic.

    i don't really know as i just happened to come across it
    maybe some leathergoods specialists, i would ask the bespoke makers at tramontano

    and that stp tardini is the bad type i mentioned before that gets talked about here

    How perverse, as belts are circles. I wonder if that 750 euro number is V.A.T. inclusive. Wouldn't that be nice. I am in pursuit.

    Well, I'm fine with the Tardini so long as they are reputable and high quality. I don't want to buy this sort of thing from a chintzy maker.

    How about one guy whipping the guy in front with his belt, and then so on?
