    Did a little research, it was from a shop in Nairobi that did custom safari hear for all sorts of celebrities and affluent people going on safaris. Only open from mid 50's to early 60's

    The coaster at the Sahara was awesome, ... sadly now closed. If one has the nards, the rides atop the Stratosphere are scrotum-tightening. I always do the neon museum boneyard tour, but in July it'll probably be a bit warm, and with no car for the OP, maybe not an option.
    Check out the Fireside Lounge for some old fashioned Vegas extravagance.

    I like to think that whoever donated this left the store after picking it up, thought, "oh shit this doesn't really fit perfectly, but I'm already like halfway home and don't want to miss the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt," and dropped it in a donation bin on the way.

    Well if Frenchy would move his thumb out of the way we could see who it is and ask him

    Is that a Joyce reference, or have I been drinking? (Or both...)

    Maybe it's just me, but I find these designer hauls to be much more interesting than (yawn) Kiton, (yawn) Brioni, (yawn) Isaia, etc.

    So I found these Ferragamos a month or two back and haven't been able to find anything similar except one listing on ebay. I contacted Ferragamo and after sending them detailed photos, they said they couldn't identify them (WTF). Here's the link to the similar ones:

    Just wanted to get an opinion what type of leather you guys think mine are. Any help very appreciated!

    In my neck of the woods, anything that doesn't have Izod, Stafford, or Perry Ellis is considered "interesting."
