If not, sell it at whatever price they do now and should be thankful if their stocks...

Very good question - I guess he/she has people buying on his/her behalf. I dropped into the sale last year and noticed that about three weeks later Ascot Shoes had 30-40 pairs on ebay that were in the sale (boat shoes, loafers, rubber soles, etc.). They were marked up pretty significantly from the shop sale...
The problem with the Lobb factory shop is that they are hugely suspicious of anyone they don't know (they hate Ebay sellers) and that can give off a strong negative vibe. Once you've been there a few times and bought some shoes (ideally in your own size), they lighten up a bit and become a lot more friendly. In one of my early visits I was asked if I was Ascot Shoes because I was looking at shoes that weren't my size! (I'm not Ascot Shoes, by the way ).

Honestly, of all the fora I've been on, this one has BY FAR the best moderation, best balance, etc. Nevertheless, it's sort of the writing-on-the-wall, and going through the SAME thing I've seen on all the others in terms of how things go. I'm not sure that it is something, either, that could be solved with the banhammer (that, too, was the result/strategy on...
I've been around this loop myself. I alternate between Filson 257 in tan (http://www.filson.com/products/brief...ag.70257.html), Tumi 26141 in black (http://www.tumi.com/product/index.js...erSourceCode=0) and the Papworth 77 computer case in London Tan (http://www.papworthtravelgoods.co.uk...77/index.html). I really like them all, but for any sort of travelling the Tumi is by far the best. It's exceptionally well designed, holds and organises a ton of stuff and is very...

"can i get/may i have..." it is just courtesy in speaking. dont let it aggravate you son. But it does aggravate me Dad, because to me courtesy is important and it takes no effort. Here in the UK, "can I get" has taken over. In fact, the next time someone says it...
"Can I get", as in "can I get a latte?". Well, since you're in Starbucks there is a very good chance. Would you like one?
I was in the Cabinet Office on Whitehall for a couple of hours while the protests were on. As I couldn't get out of the doors until they had moved, I watched out of the window for a while. My biggest learning from the event is that if this "wear your jeans around the back of your knees" fad doesn't move on soon, I'm going to poke someone in the eye with a sharp stick.

Having read many of the posts on Style Forum it appears American men are still far more passionate and knowledgable about their clothing than us Brits. That's great to hear - where do we find out more about them? By the way, I'm a Brit!
