    Yeah, if you ask for cash. But you can get 100% in Amazon gift card. We buy so much for the kids from Amazon, it's basically the same as cash. We bought my daughter's 400$ baby crib with change from 8 years of NYC vendors not wanting to take coins...

    Plus, my bank is USAA, and thre are no branches outside of TX. :(

    Quick question guys. I picked up a pair of AE Hillcrests at a thrift store ($5). There's some heavy wear on the inside of the... i don't know what it's called, backstay? back strap? near the topline at the back. You can see it here:

    Is there any way to repair this? The shoes are in very good condition otherwise or I wouldn't bother.

    Much appreciated. That Navy Mcgregor is fire! Also the Gobi looks nice as well. I bet they look awesome on feet

    I've heard of people finding spare change under the cushions, but this is ridiculous! How big is your couch, George? [​IMG]

    Why does the stone suede Gobi show a flat welt, and the other colors are split/reverse?

    Is the current seconds price of $271 a good deal on the Daltons? I dont see them in my size all to often so I am thinking about jumping on it.

    It's $150 off, so sure. I've seen it lower, but not for a while.

    I believe they were $219 for 2-3 days during the RDA sale. The demand was huge so it went to $269 afterwards for the rest of the RDA sale.

    This can be repaired, though it will be a little kludgy. The cobbler will glue or sew a leather patch over the hole. It works in a pinch and is fine if it does not bother you. I'd take it to a cobbler and ask them what they think.

    Does anyone have any tips on breaking in some Daltons?

    The obvious answer is to wear them, but otherwise? I wish I had sized up on the width of the pair I bought, they're beautiful and I already wore them once in an attempt to start breaking them in, but they're rather narrow...

    I once paid for a bespoke suit with a trashbag full of coins. Not my finest hour, and I wouldn't really recommend it.

    Also, for what it's worth, I didn't intend to do this. The suitmaker had a problem with their payment system. I ran to an ATM, but it maxed out about $100 under the value of the suit. I was on the way to the airport and had a bag of unused change in local currency I planned to give to the homeless. I gave the suitmaker cash plus the hundred-plus dollars in change, trash bag and all.

    Just like KMD said. That's a pretty basic repair for a competent cobbler. They will usually sew a leather patch to the heel cup area. I would say about $20 or so.

    To me the EC is far sleeker due to the last and the pattern.
