I don't know, but I'm betting Cole Haan stores probably have a higher chance of Coronavirus.

In all seriousness, this is nuts. Most of the grocery stores out where I live are completely cleaned out. Only the gluten free crappy bread remains. I picked up some bison meat because for some reason, no one buys that out here except for me. It's delicious so I don't know why. I'll be working at home probably this whole week, so probably no AE photos.
Gents please try this marinade for your bison or whatever you cook bake BBQ etc etc. No skin in the game but it is awesome, does not overpower the meat, non-meat or whatever you are cooking; can be mixed with your homemade marinade. I love it on Lucky Charms! Seriously with a porterhouse baked at 350 30 minutes you WILL be hitting that juice for your potatoes or rice after the meat is gone. Try to marinate over night but not required. I have it bad and do shots from the bottle and am currently attending AA (Allegro Anonymous)! Enjoy!

I picked up some more bison yesterday at Sprouts. They even had some elk patties, which I almost bought. My wife has a way of marinating the meats and it always comes out delicious. I'm not sure exactly how she does it, as there's a combination of sauces she uses from the Chinese Grocery. It's the only time I've been out of my home this week.

Does anyone know when this extra 20% off expires? I wanted to see if I could buy through a sales associate, but Lord knows when people will return to work.

I miss my Strandmok 2.0. Such a fantastic shoe and unlined albeit.

I am way behind, are those from the TS?
Nope, standard stock item. See here. There's also a Neumok model, and a couple other denim suede models.

Forgot to take a picture of my shoes today (was wearing rust stinger Beckleys) but did take a picture of the line of people waiting to get into the Trader Joe's on Olympic and Stoner in West Los Angeles around 9:30am today.

There was a line because they were only allowing fifty people in at a time. Inside they had plenty of everything, other than toilet paper. There was a limit of two of any item per customer, except for cases of water and bottles of liquor, where the limit was one per customer.

Got everything on my list and resisted the temptation to get a package of orange cranberry scones. Several people in the line was fooling around with their cell phones. Wonder how many of them had seen the billboard across the street and were ordering some marijuana?

Why are they smashed?
I have no clue. I have plenty of boots without the toe counter smashing in. It only happened on this pair after like 2 wears. Left is much worse. I have asked if the boot is constructed with any different materials or process and the answer I received as that they did not have complaints about this. Which by the way, does not answer the question about materials and process. Makes me think that for the grey kudu, they may have put in softer toe stiffeners than with other boots. I am going to wear these as an experiment to see just how bad they look over time. It seems that they are not getting worse but time will tell.

Hmmm... The grey kudu is what I wanted to get. Now I’m having second thoughts.
Maybe you should submit an online review to document the issue.

There is now much less traffic than there used to be.

Took this picture shortly after 9:00am on Thursday. Was wearing Oakmonts at the time but didn't take a picture of them.

Wow amazing views and videos of desolate LA and NYC streets.
Just saw that another former stomping ground (I am a military brat) just got the stay at home order....Kansas. Only good thing about the whole epic bad situation is my Kansas Jayhawks were ranked numero uno going in to March Madness so they “technically” are College Basketball Champions??? Yes Chef; No Chef?

All of the situations we currently run through our heads or conversations we are having are SO surreal that we are even having them.
Oh and BTW set yourself up for next season’s “March Madness” with your spouse or sig by spending some time cleaning up a pair if shoes whilst’ watching the Hallmark Channels’s “March Madness”! Get some good “honey done” points during the current crisis.

Carry on!

Typically they've run this thing for about a week, with a couple days in between this sale and the start of the Anniversary Sale the first week of April. I was really hoping they'd take a cue from GS, maybe change things up a little in light of what's going on (namely all of the business closures) but doesn't seem like it. Maybe they'll prove me totally wrong and extend it, but I doubt it.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
