    There was a great episode of The Office in which David Brent's new boss and he have similar jackets. After finding out that his boss's was made by Giorgio Armani, he annouced that his was made by "Sergio Georgini". Hysterical.

    As I sit here reading this, I am wearing an "Enrico Gelini" blue blazer, made in Korea by persons of Italian ancestry.


    The blazer isn't great, but I loved Mr. Gelini's duet in Lucia de Lammermoor.

    Jon,

    That's sort of the point. I have a Japanese sweatshirt, obviously varsity influenced, which had the logo "Go University Very Good Sport" on the front, and what appeared to have been a reproduction of a NBA ranking chart on the back. If Tierra Fuego actually has a bobsledding team, I'd be highly surprised.

    Yeah, but I meant that they don't have any sporting team, period.

    I would be really surprised if there are 2000 people living on the Argentine side.

    Jon.

    Hilarious. I bet an American version of a Japanese version of an American version would be a pretty good fashion seller in the US right now. I'm sure somebody has done it. I don't know street wear very well...

    If anyone saw "The Family Man" with Nic Cage, he tries on a Zegna suit and later his wife surprises him with a knockoff. "Zeena... wow, thanks hon"

    If I remember right, when I saw that scene there seemed to be something very wrong with one of the shoulders on the suit he tried on in the store.

    Well, granted Armani could be considered a non-Italian label seeing as a plethora of their products are not made in Italy. But Brioni? And KITON?

    Kiton makes their own: suits, shirts and shoes in-house in Naples. How much more Italian can they be?

    Jon.

    Never mind the Far Eastern Italian brands, we carry Italian Italian brands such as:
    Burr-oni
    Zeggnah
    Cannoli
    Mahreshhi
    Gravati...as in gravatational pull
    Marteyganee
    Burrgoaly

    got a call the other day for Hinckley Freedman...remember a customer getting very upset at Nordstrom many years ago because we didn't have any Alton-Edwards shoes...and then there was the guy who said how much he loved his Fagamoes...
