    I've seen you mention something like this a few times. Have you tried one of the VPN apps that can help spoof your location?

    Speaking of earlier post about how I go off topic:
    Went to the Astros game tonight. Sellout crowd against Tampa Bay on a Wednesday because they were handing out these bad boys:
    260B3C11-93DA-4FF4-9DBA-33D56A71939E.jpeg
    They originally did a game earlier in the season with only 10,000 available, and people were camping outside the stadium the night before. The day after the game there were rings going for $1k on eBay, so due to demand, they decided to do a second giveaway for all ticket holders at tonight’s game. Funny how quick you can sell out a Wednesday night game...

    Decent enough view for nosebleeds:

    Half of Houston was waiting in a line wrapped around the stadium (in the rain no less). We’re very motivated by World Series memorabilia:

    Not often you see back to back to back home runs:

    That’s it. Fun evening, but lost my car for a while, so got to wander around Downtown for a solid hour looking for it

    I have had mismatched toe caps and other mismatched panels on the two pairs I received recently. Even after trying to shift the nap in various directions the color was way off and I couldn't tolerate the toe caps so it was an easy return. Still considering the pair that has a mismatched outer rear quarter.

    On a suede related topic, big ups to the gent that shared the JA deal about 20 pages back. Does anyone have actual photos of the suede Cornwallis? Perhaps from different angles?

    I love that sole. It was on the Academy, and it's great. Grip and the look of a full-leather edge.

    I bought the same pair, and I'm strangely excited about them.

    I'm not saying they didn't screw it up, but your feet will measure differently depending on time of day, what you've been doing, etc. I've actually forgotten what the recommendation is for the best time, but I think it would be mid-day - after you've been up and moving but before your feet have taken the majority of their daily beating.

    You're welcome. :D $75 was too good of an offer for me to pass on. You're a stronger man than I.

    Here's another Strand pic for posterity's sake. We've got a bunch of brown shell fans here, but I love burnished brown calf!

    I am amazed that you managed to summarise his posts in one paragraph, it’s like herding cats.

    Not on me. I look beautiful. Like a fat chick in yoga pants that are two sizes to small.

    Oddly enough, I find that my feet seem a tad larger first thing in the morning vs end of the day. Seems backwards, I know. I have a few pairs of shoes that I’ve bought that are bordering on small for me, and when I was in the “will I keep these?” phase, I would notice that trying them on in the morning they felt a bit tight; however, if I tried them on after work/at night, they felt much better.

    Cobbler Union. In short, I like them quite a bit - comfortable, nice leather, solid construction, a dainite-style sole (which was desirous for weather reasons - I travel alot),...and, stylistically, this shoe (the Alex II, if I recall) was fairly discreet and not as fashion-forward as many others, which was personally appealing. To my eye, they have held up fairly well over the past two years.

    They do not make this particular model anymore, but a link to a similar one is below:

    https://www.cobbler-union.com/collections/the-derbys/products/alex-ur

    To nitpick a little, I would prefer much more arch support and the shoe to be offered in different widths (my feet are relatively narrow). The latter issue is, to be honest, one of the primary attributes that brought me to AE, particularly for my oxfords--prior shoes from other companies were simply too big and there was excess leather across the vamp that, with time, would give the appearance that my shoes were borrowed from "my big brother." AND, my big brother wears terrible shoes! :) So...here we are.
