Not a brag, but a mildly amusing story.
As I was walking back to my apartment, A voice yelled, "there he is!" to a police car that was driving on the street (apparently looking for someone to apprehend), and the police car came to a screeching halt to apprehend this middle-aged man. A few minutes later, I found out that the man was arrested after the local thrift shop (Housing Works on 75th and Columbus) called the police to report a shoplifting. Anyway, it turns out that the thing that was stolen was pretty much the most gorgeous pair of spectator loafers I've ever seen, approximately looking like this Cleverley, except that, of course, it's a spectator, but has a similar brown colour:
So, having no shame, I followed the employee back to see if the shoes were for sale. Alas, it was not.
In any case, I saw a great pair of Stuart's Choice penny loafers in dark brown in 12D. Since it wasn't my size and the price tag was off, I was too lazy to find out how much it cost, but it was in superb condition (worn less than 5 times, by the looks of it), so if it's anyone's size and live in NYC, they should pick it up. I went at closing time, so if anyone gets there in the morning tomorrow, they can probably find it. Housing works tend to be expensive for a thrift store, but I can't imagine the loafers costing as much as it would cost to pick it up on Ebay.
