$20K... how many pairs of AE's is that?

post #37413 of 48312

80 pairs in shell on sale from the Shoe Bank.  But $20k fun money, you don't buy AE no maw.

I bought a pair of Derby's last week from AE during their sale. The shoes were $197 and shipping/duty was another $134... and at 6% (no idea if that will hold up) that $20K will be ~$85K towards retirement by the time I'm ready so Hamilton is still probably my high end. I do think that the dial on that Rolex fits my particular tastes better than any I've seen so far though and it's probably the only high end watch posted on the TWAT that I've actually seen in person (I know I'm the one who posted it but that still counts).

 

The thought of trying to break in 80 pairs of AE's...

SF is one of several reasons I'd better work until I die.  Only a prosperous and patient younger wife can save me now.  I'm working on it.

 

Two AE GMTOs are due soon (+two Carminas + three Vass + two Meermin).  And one watch.  Not a Hamilton, but close...

Did you end up with any J. Fitzgeralds over the last year? I remember how much you liked them.

post #37419 of 48312

Not Fitzgeralds, that must be a whole other Mexican:

J Fitzpatrick (Click to show)
"Marcos" loafers (and some Carminas in the background)

Fitzwhatever... it's late on this side of the planet, and I can tell that's your pic from the socks

Nope. If it's just a simple 3 hand with maybe the date just let it run down. When you start talking about perpetual calendars and such, you might want to keep it running.

If it makes you feel any better, you ain't the only who has to make them heartbreaking decisions.

MOAR watches

RRSP contributions + kid's tuition fund
