    Looking forward to meeting you in London.

    What a gracious, friendly evening you hosted. So lovely to meet Garance Dore as well. Smiles all around, democratic and embracing of everyday chic folks… that is what fashion, retail and magazines should be all about. Elitism does not inspire people outside the fashion world to shop and put on their best..but you do. The success of your launch and the following you have are well deserved. Let's keep spreading the word.
    We love you – Darby and Solange

    Just looking back at that photo of Lino, and I noticed something interesting….his hands.

    I've been figure drawing since I was 7 and I rarely see hands that interesting and intricate looking. They're calloused looking, wiry and brutish. And the way they clasp that stemware offsets their nature beautifully.

    Lots of interesting body language going on!

    Thats why I think he's so damn cool, its because you can tell he's done many things in life other than just run a clothing store.

    I just love it when a person's body language and clothes reflect their real personality. You can tell Lino and others in these photos are extremely comfortable walking around in what they wore.

    i didn't realize what a handsome man you are. even nicer that you enjoy looking at others rather than having the world look at you.

    the additional snaps are great way to see how fashion is lived in, to see it in it's function in addition to the captured moments.

    It looks like it was fabulous. I wish you would come to someplace as (what's the word- simple? boring?) as Ohio. It would be a dream to be a part of this kind of event. *sigh*

    Hi, I just purchased your book at my college campus bookstore in New Jersey, and I must say you have inspired to be more creative with my outfits and now i get compliments everyday from students. It has helped me feel more confident and I can't thank you enough. Please make more books, I will be looking forward to getting them. Much love. -C
