Your right, I was thinking of Tampa Travel.  I got my online shoe forum personalities mixed up.

I think JGilbert has done a 6 eyelet shell chukka on the plaza. A suede version was posted here recently.

Holy sweet beejeezus - 5 identical pairs of MTO plaza wingtips??!!! Madness!!!

Once we cross over a certain line, it is too late to question or look back. I think... Maybe...

Haha holy, didn't think it would be five of the same exact shoe. Doesn't make me feel as weird MTOing three strands in different colors.

You're both weird.

Weather finally warming up so what better time to break out the whiskey LHS for their second wearing.

Were you guys taking this picture barefoot, or did were you carrying your #2s across a bed of boulders to find the perfect spot?  And were there bystanders?

 

Nice shoes nonetheless!

Too bad you and Mafoo are on opposite ends of the size spectrum since he's got plenty...

I just laughed out loud at the idea of dubs & DV scrambling barefoot over rocks, with hordes of tourists watching as they desperately try to find the optimum spot to take their shoe selfies. Taking it to another level now guys, bravo!

J. Crew LWBs showed up with no bags and have clearly been walked in. Send back for a new pair or try to negotiate a discount. At what price are they a good deal relative to a "perfect pair"?

Only you can answer what you consider to be a good deal relative to a "perfect pair." I know J. Crew will sometimes give discounts on worn shoes, but I think it depends upon who you speak to. I personally wouldn't consider creases and lack of shoe bags as a deal breaker, but you might be different. I think it's worth negotiating a discount provided the shoes are defect free (other than minor wear).

Just to add to this. I think you'll be chasing a "perfect pair" of Alden for quite a while. What is your time worth?
