Marc Jacobs International Co. LLC paid $1 million to settle a bribery suit. Doled out to New York State, the fine money is meant to cover the supposed $35,000 in cash and goods given to a State Armory superintendent for preferential booking. Oh Marc, how Tony Soprano of you! The Gay Mafia strikes again. [WWD]

In other Marc news, he wants to get married! (For real this time). [The Cut]

Hart Schaffner Marx, Obama's campaign suit of choice, is finally riding the presidential wave. They've added this box to its Web site’s home page: “Dressing Presidential. Pick Your Power Suit. President-elect Barack Obama Found His at Hart Schaffner Marx.” There's also plans for a "West Wing collection" of suits. Ok guys, let's not get carried away. [WWD]

Ya know how Prada has the Prada cell phone? Well, because it's too inconvenient to pull your cell phone out of your pocket, they've now made the Prada Link, a watch that alerts you when your phone gets calls and text messages. At least it looks chic. [WWD]

Have man boobs? No problem -- the Japanese (who else?) have a remedy for that. [Towleroad]
