    He has never explicitly revealed why his experience was so disillusioning, but he has frequently alluded to Mariano's smile, the fanciness of the Rubinacci shops, the presence at the Carlyle, Arab oil money, and Persian carpet dealers.

    You forgot machine-rolled edges on their silk squares in that list.

    Interesting - thank you. On the +ve side, this must mean that his anger has deflected away from Edward Green (his old enemy).

    How can you tell? Perhaps I'm too low class to know the difference [​IMG].

    I didn't know he had an issue with EG before.

    Do you have any thoughts on how we might harness the powerful force of anger to protect the West or maybe clean up the Gulf?

    Would an actual harness be involved, perhaps?

    You are a smart guy. How do we do it?

    Hated EG if I recall correctly - for some inane reason too (their shoes didn't fit his feet well, so they were shoddy and Hillary was a crook).

    It involves mirrors. That's all I can say for now.

    And the watches and perfumes/colognes.

    Here is a sample from the LL

    I have a pair of their cufflinks.

    I didn't want them, but their massive advertizing budget swayed me.

    Is this the thread where I accuse my tailor of draping me during a fitting?

    Reminds me of the Friends episode re: Joey and his tailor.

    bengal-stripe: Thanks for the link.

    If I get banned for being witty and entertaining with a penchant for occasionally posting a hot piece of tail on page 17 of a thread that has been beat to death to the point where it started with a discussion of hand-stiched buttonholes on surgeon's cuffs and ended with a discussion of class warfare in the 18th century in Portugal, then did I really belong here anyway(?) Probably not.

    That being said, I've never been banned before from any forum, so it might be kind of cool. Who does the banning, though? AA has the swaggering, cowboy-like Alex Kabbaz, who posts 853x per day whilst supposedly stitching the greatest shirts in the history of haberdashery, summarily banning anyone with the bad sense to bump a dead thread or, more importantly, talk sideways about a preferred vendor, especially a certain vendor who makes the greatest shirts in the history of haberdashery and sells an extensive collection of Zimmerelli socks and hosiery. Do we have anything like that around here? Haven't seen it, but - then again - I'm a relative nooob.

    Cheerio.
