    Hah! It might have been. Wasn't one of my usual spots, but I don't remember exactly where I was. I usually just go to GW in Everett, when I'm on my way somewhere else, but I sometimes hit the VV as well.

    Looks like salt stains from here. Try a mix of 1 part vinegar to two parts water

    When I worked retail (pre-Ralph Lauren), one of my favorite pairs of shoes was a pair of long wings made by Rancourt for Cole Haan.

    Yeah I was not expecting that. The last caught my eye and since the sizing wasn't the typical 9/9.5 I just figured it was a rather sleek grenson. 330 said more like EG and then I found some old EG nail patterns that matched / the 88 last was used for RTW during the same time period EG was making for Cole Haan (late 80s-early 90s I think). I wonder what the retail was like vs EG back in the day.
