@steveoffice Sorry, OT, but what's your bookshelf? I've been ready to get the one from Design Within Reach, but there are some on ebay for like 1/3 of the price, but I'm guessing it's best to just get the one from DWR...
A lot of the SZ favorite designers/makers use a lot of kangaroo for their footwear, brands like Carol Christian Poell, Augusta/a1923, Guidi, etc.I imagine that Alden and other dressier shoemakers don't use kangaroo is because the leather is so lightweight and thin that it doesn't hold it's shape well and under a suit would look sloppy.
Damn, if this was a few days later I would meet up for sure. I'll be in the area visiting my folks from July 11-20.
If anyone wants to go to Brimfield on Saturday the 12th or Sunday the 13th I will probably try to get out there weather permitting.
I'll probably come into Boston a day or 2 earlier in the week (probably July 14-16) to hit a few shops and visit with some friends if anyone wants to meet for coffee or a drink or anything.
