I ask a second (and final time): You brought up a thread started 31 months ago by an infamous member banned over a year ago, to comment on the avatar of a member with 27 posts in the past year and a half, none of them within the past 3 months? And you are a commercial seller of hats? And this is somehow not spam because......? (No more comment from me in order to try not to add more spam myself)

The best plain black dress shoe for $800-$900 is the Allen Edmunds Park Avenue on sale for $200 with $600-$700 left over in your pocket. The shoe is made in a variety of widths to ensure a good fit. The leather is nice, takes a shine well (a colleague has a pair that practically look patent).

Here's my feeble attempt. Keep in mind, I wear these shoes. Most recently ,today. The pictures are from my attempt to master the mirror shine (applied to the front half of the nearer shoe). Of course, compared to the G&G offering, I may as well use these for trail hiking.

I think I could probably get the same effect with Kiwi. I slather on many many coats of polish, coupled with dabs of water. Also, I don't polish too hard. Bic Excellent. Your shoes have amongst the best non-advertising photo shoot shines I've seen. Simply...
Am I the only one who actually ordered shoes from this sale? Has Edward Green fallen from favor without my knowledge? Has anyone else ordered and received their shoes yet?
