Let's start with a little bit of Pre SF shoe damage:



And finally, some G&Gs!



Not too shabby for a 22 year old

Not too shabby for a 62 year old, even

Nice montage - and nice of you not to dwell on how the SF helped guide you out of your $!

Style Forum might not help you make money, but it will sure show you how to spend it right.

This.

Honestly, if I did not spend my money on shoes and such, then I probably would spend it on much sillier things... and I do enough of that already! I also am still on my parents dime, so I might as well spend my money on something productive. I figure I will need all this stuff eventually when I am out in the work force.

A good rationalization is that you are helping the poor economy, and also you could be spending it on drugs or something.

Too bad 99% of the money I spend on clothes goes to England, or Paris...

Good eye on the AEs. They are definitely not seconds, alas.

And the sloops are from Will:

Me thinks, "fox" refers to the colour, not to the supplier of the skin .

No, definitely not. And it's good to see that you wear them, too. On pavement.

If SF had been around when I was in first year (at home), who knows what I would have bought.

I wouldn't go that far!

You're right - baby steps first. Start on shag rugs, then work your way up to industrial carpeting, and then (only if you're brave enough) step out onto pavement.

I'm cruel to my shoes that way, I suppose. But I've given up trying to use the polished soles of my shoes as shaving mirrors.

A man after my own heart!

If SF had been around in first years of my life, I would have been the smartest kid in the play pen.

I received today a pair of Cheaney chukka boots from a reputable ebay seller (Anand). The seller was mentioning a retail price of £275.00 and I was thinking the Signature range. I contacted Sheila from Cheaney and she warned me that these might be subs (they are, but I see no defects) and are from the recently updated Cheaney of England collection. The model is Crawley. I could find it only on this website. These are on the same last as my Burton chelsea boots I was wearing today, The Crowley will replace my Loake Kemptons in suede and with the brown CJ Tetbury will be my favourite wet days fall/winter shoes thanks to the Dainite soles. They seem to be almost as well built as the Tetbury and have a similar elongated last. Here are some pics of the Crowley chukka + Burton chelsea boots and some unworn Lester derbies from the Cheaney Signature collection Cheaney Crowley Cheney Burton
