    Does that NFL taping occur in Los Angeles? I'd hate to see the sneakers with suit thing spreading.

    Any descriptions, or accounts of the game without the express written consent of the NFL is strictly prohibited. With that said, tonight’s game against the Cowboys is in LA Memorial Stadium.

    You've got me looking at taking a flyer on a pair of Brave Star selvage.
    Do you take your normal trouser waist size with the Brave Star?

    They have sizing charts.

    https://bravestarselvage.com/pages/sizing

    Looks like mostly 2”-2.5” vanity sizing +/-0.5” (manufacturing tolerances) according to the charts.

    Several different lasts, talking with Jeff while waiting for my shell NSTs, he said that all their boot lasts were on the wide side which is good for my dogs, but hopefully they offer narrow options...did not ask.

    I also liked the transparency, that was a great message. But did you catch the part, did I read it right, if you bought anything in 2018, there would be a discount code for you to buy in future so you needn't feel bad about the new pricing? If that is correct, these folks are all that and a cup of tea.

    Also, maybe the nicest footwear complement ever... 'incredibly sleek for the size' and yes, I agree, it is odd how sleek they look while not too long and comfortable width. If I were shopping, there is a pair in my size that was $425 last time I looked (while not shopping) and is now at $275.

    I buy 1 size up, wear awhile, then wash in cold if fit is close, and increase temperature depending on how much shrinkage I want.

    That’s also how I read that part about the coupon, which is awesome. I got my pair on a nice discount, pretty much the same as the new price, but if a coupon comes my way, those blackish Fritz are mine.

    Well tempered Amadeus Turntable, separate linear power supply, Grado Reference Master cart, Hagerman Trumpet phono preamp with NOS Mullard tubes pre 1956, Bel Canto Pre 6, bryston 28bsst2 amps, VMPS rm30 series 2 speakers, morrow -7 interconnects, Morrow grand reference speaker cables, listening room treated with acoustic absorption panels and a dedicated 20 amp service line. I also have a Pioneer Elite Kuro plasma monitor for movie duty.

    Now I just wish I had the ears of a twenty year old to listen to it.

    Stirling gets more snow time than Natty HM. Is it the sole or tying to keep HM as Natty as possible.

    Yes, that is your expensive hobby!! It sounds (pun intended) like a wonderful system. My ears are shot due to age, High Fi and live rock music, so I listen to a Bang&Olufsen CD and some older Revox studio monitor speakers. Not really high end any more, but it does work for me. Now to go put 'Train on the B&O and think about shoveling snow for the 2nd day.

    Someone else, besides you, has good taste in travel footwear.

    I have a pair of shoes arriving tomorrow. This is the proper expression to have when receiving new shoes.
