    My father used to tell this joke:

    Guy was walking down the street in the Bronx when a shady character called to him from a doorway.

    Shady character: "Pssst, hey pal - want to buy an elephant?"

    Guy: "What're you nuts?! I live in a one room 5th floor walk-up; what am I gonna do with an elephant?!"

    SC: "Yeah, but it's only $500!"

    G: "Maybe you didn't hear me - I've got no use for an elephant!"

    SC: "I'll make it $400. You know what an elephant weighs? You realize how little that is per pound?"

    G: "You're out of your mind...get lost"

    SC: "Buddy, you drive a hard bargain. OK; two elephants for only $150 each!"

    G: "Now you're talking!"

    Just picked up these shoes --they're unworn-- for a price roughly the equivalent the bargain that two elephants for $300 would be; because they are beautiful and because I can't resist a deal either. But I fear I've also got about as much use for them. Any thoughts as to with what/when/how to wear them?

    Wear with typical business attire, such as conservative suit or odd jacket and dress pants. Do not wear with jeans. For unworn shoes, they look rather in need of leather care.
