Picked up some shoes today. Ferragamo, Cole Haan, Polo. Are they Cole Haan's shell? Time to learn about leather and cleaning up shoes
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Also, any tips on removing sharpie from leather soles?

Hard to tell from the pictures for sure, but I'm very doubtful they are shell

Pretty sure RTC is right. That circular stamp should say "Genuine Shell Cordovan". Nicely done.

Oh no, I'm well aware the e-thrift I posted was shell, I was referring to grid's question about his Cole Haan pickup

I picked up a pair of pure cashmere trousers by Incotex last year. Softest thing I have ever touched - didn't hold a crease worth a damn, but flipped quite well.

Anyway, flipping through the racks, nothing spectacular, then I saw this which warmed the cockles of my heart :



Found a Hayward tie, which is a first for me (and possibly the thread) :




Then came across a staple blue DB, seemed nice... flipped open the jacket, saw this :




BOO. Pass, boring, slide over to the next. But in that slide, Something caught my eye and I went back....it couldnt be, could it? In flipping literally thousands of jackets, Ive never...ever... until today...



Solid gold buttons. On a DB no less! 4 fronts and 6 for the sleeves. All marked 14K. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Now how much was that bastard again?



Hi, Mr. cashier, Ill take this, please. Oh, this is pretty heavy, is it a winter coat? Well, its a winter weight, sure. Great, winter coats are half off today!



Im SO glad I can cross this off my list... I never thought it was going to happen.

LOL, I totally forgot about that. I am so out of the loop this year. Last few, I watched a ton. Not a snap this year. In on a few pools, so I guess I had better check the quarterly scores
