This is a 200-year-old farmhouse in the West Village - and it might be torn down to build condos

Please read this and call the Landmarks Commission. It would be a tragedy to lose this oasis.

My favorites from eidosnapoli SS15

These are the must-haves:

1. the Picasso-inspired toggle coat;
2. the special-wool-I-don’t-remember-its-name knit tie to which my brother has converted me; and
3. the Dickie Greenleaf shirt for next summer’s return pilgrimage to Ischia - birthplace of our great-grandmother.

You killed it, Tonio.

Why I go to Pitti

Some people genuinely go to the twice annual menswear-trade-show-costume-party-circus known as Pitti Uomo in Florence Italy for their work.

Others go to dress up in outlandish outfits and peacock in the Fortezza courtyard in hopes of having a picture taken and posted to sites like this one.

I go to spend time with my brother and the great friends that I have met through him; all men of great heart and tremendous substance.

And in particular, I go for moments like those pictured above of extraordinary energy and absolute hilarity that cannot possibly be captured fully — as I said to @theindependentman who was sitting next to me as I took these — by a handful of photographs.

I have been spoiled in the opportunity to attend two in a row, a streak that is highly unlikely to continue. I will miss 3am last call at Gilli with my friends, but I will smile at the posted photographs, knowing firsthand what they do not, and cannot capture.

Pizza Fritta.

This is nothing short of genius.

Perfect weather and perfect company. Thanks again to eidosnapoli for letting me crash his party again this season. And thanks to @christopherfenimore, laragosta and tommyton for capturing our fun.

Mannina shoes. Made in Italy with love

I am the lucky and proud owner of four pair of Mannina shoes - two loafers and two lace ups. He is a wonderful fiorentino gentleman, and an old-school craftsman. His prices for measured made-to-order (my sense is they are not fully bespoke, individually lasted shoes) are incredibly reasonable - about $450- (they used to be absurdly cheap at $225 before the euro) and the quality of the loafers in particular is fantastic. Plus, he’s precisely the kind of artisan I love to support.
