Thanks! They look good in those pics. The J. Crew site makes the look pretty orange.

Thats because they sell the defective shell shoes at full price as first quality.

Sad, but there is some truth in that.

Bakes, I sense some unusual stress and frustration in your posts...  I hope the weekend treats you well my friend.

All stock selection. Any idea if they'll have any cordovan models or special make-ups?

Speaking of TSM 2nd lists. Apparently somebody is reselling factory rejects in Japan for a good profit. Take a look at this.

Second quality Cordovan Tanker size 9D or 9.5D for 79,800 yen. That's US$770 !!!

The reseller even got a cobbler to patch the "defects".

PSA when your
Wife asks why you went to bed so late don't say I had to bone my shell shoes. Apparently that can be taken wrong. Deer bone hunney I swear it helps the leather.

My wife has reached a place of acceptance, noting that there are worse mistresses a man can have.
