    I thought the Rag & Bone review was actually pretty good. Other than the shit head working there, Mr Albo spoke pretty highly of all of the clothing. The fit and price sounded to be all on point.

    Yeah, the Rag & Bone actually made me interested in going there (while hopefully avoiding the employees) and checking the stuff out.

    I hope the new store doesn’t interfere with their twice yearly showroom sample sale! It’s my favorite.

    Wish I could check out the Rag & Bone store. Right now I’m stuck in the New Hampshire boonies so I can only see their clothes on-line. I have one of their work shirts and chinos from a few years back and they are very well made. But what I’ve noticed is that they are making less ‘work wear’ pieces and more – what I call ‘fancy pants’ clothing.

    love LOVE clear frames on glasses.

    also, so nice to meet you last night! i had definitely had one too many glasses of wine by the end, though….hope i was at least semi-coherent in our conversation!

    anyway, happy birthday and have a great weekend :)

    If you like that sort of eyeglass frame I suggest you do an ebay search using ‘panto’ in the description. I did so recently and found several dozen of similar vintage, new frames in the P3 shape made in Europe. The prices will shock you, in a pleasant way.

    Disagree; Stubbs & Wootton is great.
