Something different... images of record shop bags from 1960-1990 some of these might bring back memories. http://flashbak.com/british-record-store-bags-1960-1990-35773/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=socialnetwork
I'm actually from near Glasgow, Scotland funnily enough, but I've been in the bay area for 20 years, first the Mission in SF then Oakland since 2000. Got out at the right time I reckon!
Been away for a bit and catching up on this thread... welcome AYP! I'm in Oakland and like Botolph I caught your drift in this post... enough said...
Dynamite pic, would make a great xmas card!
It looks like the guy on the right (closest to the interviewer) is wearing not only an American Cravat, but also a cardigan over a v-neck jumper! His mum was probably worried about him catching a cold.
The only guy at work who would understand this is on holiday, and I need to share this with someone, so you lot will do ;) Walking past my local cobbler (in Oakland, California) on Saturday, I cast my eye over the rack of sale shoes that customers never picked up. My eyes were drawn to what looked like some nice longwings.

Still, the price is competitive for Cordovan at $575 with free shipping and they have a 25% off promo code running right now 2FALL which makes them $430. If I had spare...

Me too, I wear them all the time - sand suede for spring/summer and oxblood horween leather for the rest of the time, especially for motorcycling. I wear those the most actually because they're my favorite shoes for riding the motorbike and I commute on it nearly every day. I messed up my sand suede ones on the bike, got oil on the toe of my shifting foot. I was able to get them reasonably clean but they're relegated to non-bike days now, as are my Florsheim wingtips.
