I won't respond again, don't want to derail anymore.
I didn't name drop. None of these shoes are from those makers. I just stated the fact that most of the posters on the Shoe Porn thread DO own & love shoes by those makers. These are all from 1930 to the mid 1950's.
I believe you gentlemen suffer from "Internet Elephantiasis" or "Big Balls on the Internet". It's main symptom is blatant disrespect to others who contribute and actually post on the forums you spend all day reading. Not saying, "don't like those", or "I wouldn't wear them", or any type of critique which would show any actual knowledge on the subject (ie construction, shape, etc for shoes). Resorting to, "those are Ugly", and other Second Grade style or IQ Deficient responses.
It's main causes are 1) having a mundane life and boring job with no real power & a boss who is disrespectful in his/ her dealings with you, & 2) being a cuckolded hubby with a dominant wife who deals with your inadequacies with frequent "out-of-the-marriage trysts".
