Thanks Jerry. Thanks RJ . 31 old, unemployed, living with my parent, poor...BUT with 14 pairs of braces. Katia is cooking some good dishes... Next time you eat at her home. I am still waiting for the shoes. Hope they are not lost or robbed.
Ernest -- perhaps you should think of yourself not as unemployed, but as un gentil homme, or gentleman.

Come on, people with economics degrees are always unemployed. Economics requires at least a Masters to get a decent corporate job. l should know, l have one. As Ernest would know, economic training is good for starting your own business. That's all for now, marc_au.

We've had our differences but on behalf of a man who comes from farming stock, my sincerest wishes for a happy birthday.

I do not agree. Economics are fine to find a job, at least better than most of other matters you can study in University. I have just been in an area in which business is slow for 3 years. I will set up a company as I like money, business, bargain, risk. I can not stay in a company for 2/3 000 euros all my life.

Being unemployed is not a problem for my self confidence. I'm laughing at myself.

Today is Ernest's birthday. Congradulations. Hope you and K. have a great day. Maybe a lovely dinner together. I sent him a gift (Chris mailed it for me) a while back, but he has not received it yet. A pair of Brooks' Peal (Crockett & Jones) black wingtips. Gave Ernest the entire history; that Peal & Co. went out of business about 1964, that Brooks then bought the name and sold EG's with a Peal label, later C&J and now mostly Alfred Sargent (but still some C&Js). His comment on Brooks willingness to drop the quality to keep its Peal prices as low as possible: "That Mr. Brooks is very stingy; soon he will be selling Bexley shoes as Peal."
I hope the shoes are coming tomorrow. I will post a picture.

What do you mean by "what are the odds"?

Shoes have ARRIVED. They are VERY nice. Good leather, good cut and good construction (hidden stitching on soles). They are rather confortable. Good lenght and width is aloso good It just hurts me a little at the Achille's heel. I had the same problem with all Green I tried. It is a problem of shape not of lenght. I will wear them at home for the moment. Has someone the same problem with Green? Does it disapear with time when the leather become softer at the back? Thanks Jerry... Very nice gift.

He does not; he just helped me with the mailing to Paris out as he is more familiar than I am with shipping to Europe. Nice of him. Although Chris does not have any C&J's, another thread a while back discussed a Shipton shoe that Chris got with the batch of Grensons. Although it looked just like a C&J Weymouth, the general consensus was that it was made by Alfred Sargent and that Alfred Sargent was supplying most shoes to Shipton these days. Even if that is so, how did the batch of Grensons that Chris got include an Alfred Sargent made for Shipton? Is he getting more than just Grenson from his supplier?
