Got an offer accepted (for $500k below asking) on a building I want to buy after other buyers backed out (and I thought the opportunity was lost) . Now I have 15 days to to figure out how to pay for it
I should have added a poll but it looks like overwhelming support for the chukkas. I really like them (and the blue shade looks different with a greenish tint, which is nice) but I already have three pairs of nearly identical brown suede ones. Decisions... What's this AE Player's you guys mention? Pics?
I love suede shoes (and wear them almost exclusively) but I think it's time to diversify from all the brown shades and have decided I want a pair of Navy suede shoes. Which ones? Sutors are $300 from Ian D. and BBs are $373 on sale now. Mantellassi chukkas (I have several like this in Brown already): Mantellassi tassel loafers (I usually hate tassels but am strangely attracted to these): Peal/BB wingtips with crepe sole (I love crepe sole wingtips!):
I don't know if it's been posted here yet but I know some SFers have bought some of these Drakes ties from this guy. http://shop.ebay.com/aj072686/m.html I just got four of them and they are excellent, first quality Drakes (and so I've ordered three more), and an amazing deal at GBP25. He's relisted them now for GBP15 ($24!), which is a steal. He's already sold a dozens but there are still some nice patterns left. He may have more still.

I think it's a great time to buy a retirement home in the US (especially for canucks with the CAD>USD). Both my dad and my in-laws recently bought properties in SoFLA - dirt cheap! That said, as the Rube says, the Case-Shiller national index is a useless metric. NY and BOS are not ATL and PHX.
I saw it Thursday night with a couple of buddies. Maybe it's because I was stoned (and brought my flask and a 6-pack into the theatre) but I thought it was very well done for a sequel and laughed my ass off on multiple occasions.
