I wasn't going to go back yesterday, but I happened to be having lunch just a few blocks away. Â On a whim, I told my colleagues that I had an errand to run, and high-tailed it over there. I ended up picking up a double-breasted suit in a charcoal pinstripe for $225, a sport coat for $100, and five more pairs of shoes at $25/apiece (one pair of Stuart's Choice suede Algonquins, one pair of black-tasseled loafers, and three pairs of penny loafers in various shades of brown). Less than six months ago, the only footwear I owned were two pairs of Ecco's that I wore to work, plus a pair of sneakers, some Timberlands for bad weather, and backpacking boots. Â Since then, I have bought: wingtips from Coach, perfed Peal captoes, suede chukkas from Polo, loafers from Aprey, Bonora bluchers, and finally, eight pairs of Grenson's from the PS sale. Â I had to go out earlier this week and buy a shoe rack, and with yesterday's new acquisitions, I already need a second one. Â I think I've going to have to put the kibosh on new shoe purchases at this point. Â Er, perhaps, I'll just limit my purchases to the space available on the second shoe rack.
