Of course it counts! I had my couple hours of sleep and am now beginning the drudgery of a Monday. I imagine @SpooPoker (who is probably still experiencing Polo hangover symptoms) is up and at it as well.

The ed meiers I had were crockett & jones handgrade, so I would say yes.

Thanks. I had the instinct they were decent too. The internet seems to agree they are high end. Very old German company. I will post the heel nail pattern later and see if anyone knows who made them.

They are lovely - moss green suede chukka with dark brown soles. Pleased smile.gif will be available as much too big for me.

Those shoes really are gorgeous. 

 

Question for all:

 

For shoes where your foot doesn't fit the leather grove made by the previous owner, do you just wear until you build your own or replace the soles? Those Varvotas I found are gorgeous and fit me great but the previous owner had a smaller foot / wore them big and as a result they are quite uncomfortable. 

 

Also, what do people do to clean used shoes before wearing if any?

 

Thanks,

I work in Urology here at the Cleveland Clinic and can schedule you an appointment if needed. FYI, we would need to keep the diamonds and run some labs on them :hide:

First trip to a thrift in a while, had an hour waiting for my son during his drums lesson.

 

Left behind a couple of dated Burberrys suits and a few '346' blazers. Last year would have picked all of them up, now getting much pickier. Only thing I picked up was a Patagonia vest (available).

Can't find much info on this Rose & Born but it looks like a very nice piece. Italian Made Reda S100. Anyone have any idea who makes this?

Hey, how do you guys keep track of your profit margins/expenses? Does anyone have a excel template they could share or suggest a way from agonizing in the future?
