    Sorry for the Nunn Bush haters, but I love these shoes. Especially in the early morning light. 0711180731.jpeg

    Is that going to be $212.50 on firsts or seconds?

    What a shame with the Oak Streets. Not fun to receive a second looking like that. There were some Oak Street firsts going for around $150 or so recently, but it looks like they are pretty much sold out by now. I have them in the normal brown and the natural. Very nice shoes, although they fit a little looser than 5-last shoes usually fit me. I picked mine up as seconds a couple of years ago and they were of fine quality.

    I really like that color. Sort of a Golden Harvest feel to them that is pleasing. Great pair. No NB hating going on here.

    The Daltons need some loving but felt like some shell anyway.

    By attempting to correctly define the nature of how the reddit community addresses factually relevant dissenting opinions, you are inherently and intrinsically wrong. All opinions are welcome on Reddit, provided they don’t contradict anyone else’s opinions and/or hurt their feelings.

    Reddit: all your echo-chamber are belong to us

    They sound like a bunch of insole stitchers.

    Ever participated in sub on Reddit? IMHO, Reddit is the single most horrendous communications and community platform ever created. I’ve been on the interwebs for 30 years (going back to the days of shell accounts, Usenet flame wars, IRC, gophering for crap... long before http/html). Nearly every method and platform, even if in sometimes in ugly fashion (Usenet flame wars were epic), fostered the free exchange of ideas and conversation. But not Reddit.

    For example, AEnonymous and I have had some “challenging” conversations (with interjections from others that were also “challenging”). Points were made, counterpoints leveled, slaps and counter slaps, etc. Yet both AEnonymous and I are still here (so long as nobody takes their meds) M635 is still here and, one or (possibly) all of us may have learned something.

    But not on Reddit. See, on Reddit your post lives or dies based on up and down votes. Say something unpopular that the sub doesn’t like and your post gets down voted out of existence (view) where nobody will see it again. So, instead of me and AEnonymous duking it out in an exchange of ideas, one of our positions can simply be suppressed. This creates nearly perfect echo chambers, where subs are places you can go and have your positions verified by groups of people in vehement agreement.

    Both Orwell and Huxley would have been astonished and horrified by what Reddit represents.

    Sounds like fashion fascism.

    The /r/GoodYearWelt community is pretty good. A totally different feel than here, but generally pretty respectful and good. Occasional flares and less singular interests, but wider aperture for "off-topic" and little concern for more than a single manufacturer in the discussion (this thread tolerates that fairly well, less so in the Alden thread, etc.).

    These shoes look much sharper in person.

    IMHO, I’m not sure fascism is the right term. It’s mob-democracy: unfettered and direct consequence-free (but not actually free of real consequences when it comes to critical thought and free discussion), driven by votes.

    Hell, I haven’t even touched on the social capital aspects of Reddit.
