    But I'm not too frugal to get this for my wife for Xmas:

    I wonder if she'd like it. She has a huge purse collection--at least 50--probably closer to 100. But I know she doesn't have anything like that.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    I absolutely love velvet and velour. I see that it's coming back a bit and Todd Snyder makes those long sleeve velour polos. I want the burgundy one pretty bad but it's really expensive for a novelty piece.

    Now that I know it exists, I'm very tempted to buy the $85 key ring just to have a piece.
    Yeah, I saw the age thing and the history behind it, but I also keep seeing it listed as "calf" leather. I suppose they could be talking about reindeer calf, but when I see calf, I think cow.

    There is no reason why you can't dress up when you are at home. You can appreciate it.
