    The dog's bollocks those. Wow! Bestetti's greatest single creation. IMO

Kind of cant afford them at the moment, but should I skip a couple meals and keep them or return them and take my wife out for dinner?

    That is a great deal in my opinion and for that price I would expect the scales to be significantly smaller. I hope you kept them

    Just put these together for a client, still on the fence about adding croc to the quarters if I do them again, any opinions?

    No shoes, but I do have a couple of pair of custom alligator western style boots.

    You could say my collection of footwear is eclectic. These are my Rios of Mercedes Black Alligator.

    This is a bit of a weird style. If you absolutely have to go captoe, don't brogue it.

    I don't think I really like captoes with exotics, however. In the realm of oxfords, I like the idea of adelaides, or short wings.
