I would call them "very deep scuffs" rather than cracks. They don't go all the way through. (edit: I would agree that nothing much can be done for them.)And Mister Planner, thank you for picking up the reference. Regarding the soles, you can see the cork in an area a little bit smaller than a dime.Honestly when you see the shoes up close, they're not (in my view) "completely trashed" but they are very, very tired-- a condition exacerbated by my procrastination in sending...
A bit shabby I admit. But I wore those shoes constantly. They fit *perfectly*.
Also, this made me sad. Now i understand folks who refuse to euthanize a suffering pet.
Apologies for not reading all eight trillion posts, but how, exactly, does one buy a pair of ravello boots nowadays? I live in CT and work in NY-- I have given both Madison Ave and TSM a fair amount of business over my lifetime but at neither place am I a "regular".
I was really hoping that other people would poast their jaspe shirts as well. I am disappointed.
I know that we need more J.Crew poasts. According to Wiktionary, Jaspe comes from French jaspé, the past participle of jasper ("to colour motley, so as to imitate jasper"), from jaspe ("jasper"), from Latin iaspis, from Ancient Greek. Here are my jaspe shirts. I hope you like them.
Any recommendations for cheap reweaving (or skillful blended patching)? I would prize price over quality as the hole is smallish and on the buttocks, and I'm too ugly for anyone to bother paying close attention to my behind.
You know what I hate? Train. Seriously, they're like the worst band ever. If Train were here right now, I would hit them in their smug little faces with a flashlight. Or a hammer. God, I hate those guys.
I have been buying LL Bean wool socks for about 20 years. They're the only thing I buy from LL Bean. I buy them because they last a long time, they don't shrink too much, they come in XL, and they offer different lengths.
We've sort of tried this before but I have a specific question and also I want to blather. My question: I have one of those awesome 25% until 10/11 cards and I want to buy some Thomas Mason shirts (Is there a better value than Thomas Mason shirts for $93.75?). My local (to work) store on 45th and Madison is scant in this department. Where in Manhattan should I go for the best selection? Also, since I want to blather: 1. The J.Crew sale rack has to be the best thing...
