    I recently picked up a pair of women's 8.5AAA Ferragamo's and I'm running into the same problem. Lesson learned.

    Amazing. If this wasn't so long, I'd put it in my sig. Noob, your posts recently in the various threads I follow are among my favorite that I've read on SF, not to mention funny as fuck.



    I've met quite a few members in real life, all have been really stand up guys and really easy to get along with.

    I was just going to make a joke that Fastlife, Eazy and others have met me, so just ask them. But then you ruined my joke.

    For srs, though, I agree w Eazy: everyone I've met has been cool.

    No, it's normal.

    I have barely gotten my stuff sorted, and I have already convinced my wife that we need to make a donation run today....which of course means we get to shop too.

    As a rule, I don't grab YSL, but I thought this was pretty cool. Made in France.

    And then I picked up my first suit today that fit me and had flat front pants. If anyone could help me identify the maker and age I would appreciate it. I'm guessing Cantarelli but i'm not sure.

    Some recent finds. The Paul Smith suit is a first for me. I've found PS London stuff, which is meh, but the mainline made in Japan stuff is very well made.

    Had to pass on a D'Avenza Roma suit because the prior owner mistook the pants for a urinal.

    However, I have a trunk stuffed full of new-to-me stuff that will be bound for the 'bay. Does no one thrift in Cleveland?

    I almost did once. I know there are a few who hit it occasionally. Farthest I've made it that direction is Wooster.
