Oh Okay I thought in one of your videos you mentioned being the same size in both the Barrie and the marlow. Thanks for the clarification.

If someone says something snide, just let it slide. Your Internet posts speak for themselves in terms of their value; some detractor picking apart your words or making a judgment on what you said does not reduce the objective value. We all love Aldens. Let's keep it at that.

Rant over.
Mr. President, I rise today to second the statement of the good gentleman and fellow member from the District of Columbia. I also reserve the balance of my time and to revise and extend my remarks at a later date. It is with civility and deference toward others that we separate ourselves from the animals in the forests. Now I must get back to buffing my shoes.


I thought for a second a filibuster was going to ensue.  mwink[1].gif

Englade, quoting Shakespeare doesn't elevate your comment above the same level that you are saying is "sad."  Also, implying that I am behaving childishly because I point out behavior that I consider to be childish doesn't equate the former with the latter.   If that is true, then your comment brought you to the same level of childish behavior, regardless of the fact that you used Shakespeare to say it.  I don't really believe that, but you seem to based on your comment. 

Now, I know people are going to roll their eyes, and pull the old "please move on" card, but they are free to keep scrolling through comments that they aren't interested in. That's the beauty of a mouse.  Please help me understand why it is a problem for me to consider the behavior to be juvenile?  If my belief that it is juvenile is insulting, perhaps that is because the person making said decision isn't confident in their decision making process.  Is that possible?  One of the pillars of style is confidence in what you are purchasing and wearing.  If a person legitimately  likes something, and wears it confidently, they will pull off an article of clothing very well even if an observer doesn't like the item itself.  However, if a person is wearing something that an observer likes, but they are fidgeting and acting self conscious in it, it isn't going to look good.  Purchasing things for the simple reason that they are endorsed by a celebrity is a slippery slope towards ending up with stuff that isn't "you."  The prevalence of this type of behavior is inversely proportional to age.  The younger the person, the higher the prevalence of this type of behavior.  That's why most people have bad memories of their middle school years. 

Finally, I don't know you, and you don't know me.  I don't know if you have children, and if you do, I don't know how old they are.  I have young ones.  I wonder if you would follow your "superior" thinking and quote Shakespeare to your middle school aged daughter when she says "Daddy, I have to have this shirt!  It's the one Brittany Spears is wearing!"  Or, would you do what most parents do, and say that it really doesn't matter what Brittany Spears is wearing, and proceed with the age old response that we can all see played out in our heads about how she can get just as good a shirt, for half the price, at another store, that actually may be better quality, and nobody will know the difference.  The only reason she noticed it and liked it is because of a celebrity endorsement and group think.  "But daddy!!! I'm not going to be cool if I don't have the same shirt that Brittany Spears is wearing!  All my other friends have it too!!!  Need I go on?  Probably not, because we all know what I am trying to paint a picture of.  We've all been through it either when we were kids ourselves, and/or as adults dealing with kids of our own.  I really don't see why this is having to be explained in any level of detail, but I generally don't subscribe to group think, and it seems that those who do aren't comfortable with being told that they do.   

What the heck? Write a novel next time...

Same size on both, 975 is wider in the toe box and slightly longer, but not enough to go up.

8.5d in Marlow for me is about the same as 8d in Barrie.

The gentleman whose post you are referring to has difficulty ,as does a large and growing segment of todays society ,understanding the difference between fact and opinion . As long as that difficulty remains any attempt to engage in intelligent debate is futile .

Uncle Mac have you spoken to alex lately I haven't seen him post here or AAAC in a long time. His knowledge of shirtings was well appreciated and certainly very valuable.

My new tan suede chukkas arrived from Rooney today. They're super soft and feel like slippers. I went TTS and they may be a bit narrow, but being so soft and unlined it shouldn't be a problem. Only one shoe bag made the trip and the soles were a bit scuffed (Rooney has concrete floors, if I remember correctly), but I'm not complaining at the sale price.
