I just spoke to Kathy for the first time. She was incredibly nice and patient with my beginner questions. She's great. (She did say she's gotten 20+ calls this morning about the cigars!)

Plenty of guys have stories of missed opportunities due to a lack of no.3.

Except for my 4x4 #4 and whiskey Indy, all of my rare shell has been due to #1 and #3.

Speaking of luck, both pairs of my #4 happened when I was in Las Vegas.
For the 4x4's, I turned on my phone after the plane landed and saw a message stating they were available.
I replied before we got to the gate.

For the #4 captoes, I was lounging by the pool at the Cosmo and browsing SF and saw the chatter about them being available at Shoe Mart.
I didn't think they were actually available until I got a tracking number and was able to track them. That's been my biggest win in Vegas.

Since you can't control luck, you really have to be ready to pull the trigger.

Lookin' good, Saz. Might have to break mine out tomorrow, now, since it'll be raining and I won't be cycling to work.

I've wanted an Alden suede makeup for a long time but always cringed at the price tag, overpriced in my mind compared to other options on the board. I was more than happy to snag this interesting makeup 30% off.

I do love the look of these. I have to keep an eye out for something similar in snuff.

That black shell crepe boot at Leffot is almost sold out. (one size left)

I liked it, but that surprises me. It was a bold design.

Wow. Looks like people will buy shell no matter what. Did not appeal to me, either. People on IG were fawning over it.

I actually liked that boot (the IG pics were very nice) but -- yeah -- pretty surprised they went so fast. But stock was surely not so high. Supply and demand...
