For the past 2 days I have been pretty ticked off driving. Especially when I am in the China Town area during traffic. Or when there are 4 people each in a lane on the freeway going slow as hell and im stuck there. In general slow drivers tick me off in general. The far left lane is for people that want to go above 65+ if you cant then move.
      I dont think so. Allen Edmond retails for what 250-300? Pre owned I would say....maybe $60 is fair (If they where like 200 new). Clothes dont hold value well regardless of how well taken care of they are. Unless your a celebrity that is.
Look everyone, quit trying to be a smart ass. Are you all here trying to talk about shoes or just trying to dog me? I did my own research into why the soles have no mark and thats what I came up with, since no one can really point out real evidence on why then lets all forget it. And I might be new to Vass but saying that my shoes are worth less than 100 USD is absurd, boarder line insulting. If anyone of you guys want to sell me NIB Vass shoes for <100 USD send me a...
Just got some new AE shoes in. My old ever day loafers finally broke so...     I just slipped them on pretty comfortable. Dont know why some guys hate the brand so much, perhaps like Alden they are American shoes and perhaps cater to the masses? Still for the price they trump any Cole Haan, Kennith Cole or whatever off the rack shoe.
Haha right funny 50£, you have a great sense of humor ever thought of doing stand up?   Anyways Karl from Ascot said he shipped me the wrong trees, im getting the Vass ones free of charge, just they will take about 3 weeks to get here. And because I did actually do my homework I will inform you all the reason why some shoes have JR marked soles and some do not: RTW dont, MTO do. There you go, your welcome. Interesting how fast people online jump to conclusions...
Straight razors, safety razors. Who knows, nostalgia maybe, same reason I bought a little brush and mug set for my own Safety razor. I also like to collect/use vintage shaving and hair care products.
Now since we are reminiscing about my childhood horror stories I would like to share with you my most traumatizing memory. I have this one hidden away far and deep like Severus Snape's memory about Harry Potters mother.   Up until High School I have always attended a private school. There where many benefits of course, one in particular I took for granted was how few people there where in the bathroom. There where a total of 12 people who graduated with me in Middle...
Sorry to revive this 3 week old thread but;   For this there is a lot of information over at the Fedora Lounge. Basically there are 3 players in the fine Montecristi market. Panama Bob, Optimo Hats, and Brent Black. I chose Brent Black, all 3 are exceptional hats. Quality straw, nice neat weaves and a good amount of weaves per inch. The hats are actually not made in Panama but come from Equador, Montecristi hats are not made in Montecristi, I think they are brimmed...
Well guys I just got my first pair in. Got them from Karl of Ascot Shoes. They are U Last's. Initially they are a little tight but I hear this style is. So I am hoping they break in or something. I am so jealous you all have Vass shoe trees, mine did not come with any. I am currently talking to the seller about my shoe trees.   Here is a phone pic: Sorry im no photographer.   I was wondering, mines do not have the Johannes Redenbach "JR" nor the German...
This was a really entertaining thread, read it from page 1. I have quite a bit of stool stories of my own, but I think I will start off in the beginning.   It was the year 1994, I was only a lad. My mother took me to Taiwan for the summer, up until this point I had not left the states before so I was unfamiliar with other countries. Upon arriving I noticed a few things; firstly there was no central air conditioning, secondly it was very hot, and thirdly western...
