Brioni isn't the only fakes you have to watch out for in Bangkok. I would suggest using the pinch test on the ladies from there as well; if you feel an extra layer, it might not be canvas!

I forgot to throw my last Bangkok in the freezer and got bedbugs. Remember to freeze your Bangkok for at least 48 hours to avoid this!

I can't recall how many scenes I'm in and what episodes in which they appear but if you see any scene with Zoe Barnes in the newsroom of "The Washington Herald", I'm somewhere in the scene. Sometimes I am pretty visible and sometimes, I am just the nipple on the actress! (Click to show)

I would love to look at all the finds y'all posted last night but the SPOIKERS aren't working!

Aha dig, you were in cards? Sweet as hell. Did they fill you in on what was going on, or just blindly make you walk around? Any other shows?

Bit surprised to find a pair of first quality of this nature at the rack yesterday...

Pretty good deal.

Also for any of you interested in a pair of those AE Schautals (basically a suede MacNeil with a thick double oak sole, made specially for Nordstrom Rack) like the pair Fueco grabbed a few weeks back, they're on clearance at $69. For a double sole, suede, USA made longwing, that is impossible to beat. They only have them in an odd brown somewhere between chocolate milkshake and snuff. Also they only have them in widths of D or EEE. Hit up your local shop and grab a pair.

came across a very similar patterned BB SC the other day. Thing was beefy and a tad large for me.

Well, the thrift god of black AE Park Avenues has tapped me on the shoulder twice in about as many weeks! I happened across a pair of 10.5 D's today. The BAD NEWS for any of you guys who might like to buy them is that they fit me quite well and thus I'm keeping them. The GOOD NEWS is that they will replace my current black AE Parks in size 11.5 D (which are mostly nicer than the 10.5's but were just too large for me so I rarely wore them) and thus, have become available.

Here are the 11.5's in action. I originally bought them before I knew what AE Parks were but I wanted to try to rescue them from a bit of damage.



And here's some stills of the 11.5's. Now, the thing is, the left shoe has two flaws but both shoes are pretty much 8 out of 10's otherwise in my judgement.



Note that here is a very small separation in the leather at the little toe stress point.


The toe cap does NOT look this bad in real life but the flash shows the Kiwi polish that I applied heavily enough to hide a cut in the leather on the toe.


When I wear them (maybe less than 10 times in around two years), I buff the toe box and they look very good.
Warning: Sales Pitch inside! (Click to show)
So, if you're an 11.5 D and need some staple black AE Parks, I'll ship them for $50 conus. Get at me.
