I hope you're not married. Â I can't imagine the missus walking into the living room with her husband laughing in a pile of shoes... EDIT: You realize that the average American male owns 5-6 pairs TOTAL. Â And 15 pairs easily places you in the top 20 percentile (of wierdos). Â Only 150 pairs more before you catch up to the incomparable Mr. Pollock.
I actually had built-ins installed in my apartment to accomodate the collection (NYC rent-stabilized apartment) but it has grown by another 60 or so pairs since then (lived in Scotland and there are so many great shoes in the UK) and it's now overflowing. I still wear ratty old Belgian's most days. I wanna catch up to Caruso, not Pollock. Went a little nuts when I dated a girl at PRL and the C&J's came in. It's okay. Last girl I dated kept her Manolos in the oven and in her kitchen cabinets b/c her collection had way outgrown her closets.
