    Either someone flips one, or I just wait to purchase a pair of CPs on B&S, or on sale. Definitely post a review once you get the Svenssons in; I'd be down to read that.

    43's are the only size left on this swedish site: http://www.urbana.se/en/art/kid-white-1.php

    So there you go. A bit more expensive though. And they have the high tops for approx 100 bucks.

    Thanks, Zeemon. That's what they said, too. Just ordered a pair.

    I wear my white CPs like four times a week; to be honest that's something I never regretted paying near-retail for.

    VE isn't bad for Gilt prices, but you're too OCD to probably enjoy any of the footwear.

    ^ true true

    I'm looking for the perfect beater footwear for everyday wear as you know, you have to let the shoes breathe in between 2-3 days for the best wear over time.

    Open Ceremony, Vanishing Elephant etc. are all great beater shoes IMO when had at decent prices especially the materials, shape and overall decent durability. I really like suede/nubuck FWIW

    If all this does not work out I would probably try out some of those baller $700 footwear before finally diving into MC shoes.

    ^ find new obsessions. When I got really into cigars, I would have points in time when I was relatively happy with my closet and relatively unhappy with my humidor. And this would change.

    Kopped:

    for going to the lake house, the beach, the pool, etc. Thinking about getting that Vilebrequin towel/bag.

    Yeah. Would have kept those Barney's cap toe but seriously how could you send out a display model with creases already set. Dude was nice but I felt taken advantage of as well when ordering.

    Your expectations are probably too high for Barney's brand shoes
