New York, New York
Rob's been in New York (and he had to fly early to avoid the crazy snowstorm and we're not jealous, nope. Not at all). He's been scouting international menswear for us at the Liberty Fair, Capsule and the Man Show. And checking out US showrooms for Engineered Garments, Gitman and Universal Works. He has also been having a very nice time wandering the streets of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Williamsburg. Sister Sandy's friends Emma and Roger provided top B&B in Carroll Gardens. The New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder (result in overtime went Oklahoma's way 122-128) was the sporting highlight; Shuto Okayasu's private view at the Nepenthes store the cultural highlight and walking the High Line the horticultural highlight. David Keyte at Universal Works and all the girls at Meri Meri (in the city for the gift fair) were excellent dinner dates. A good time was had by all.
