Apparently a fan of their resoling. That's incredible that he can survive on just two pair of shoes, especially in New York, where one does so much more walking than average!

I've never had a pair re-worked by AE... one day. Luckily, my shoes have never deteriorated to that point. However, I also have many more than just two pairs to rotate.

A little early in the day to drop the hardware, vox? Think of all the discouraged competitors, saving their questions and comments past midnight ...

he obviously doesn't understand that gemmed shoes don't last long, that anything like Cole Haan will spontanously combust after being worn 5 times, and that living and working in NYC requires at the very least bespoke Lobb

I believe that Crassus had only two pairs of sandals during the First Triumvirate, so there is some precedence for Bloomberg.

I'll admit, this does vindicate the premise of the billionaire thread.

There was a story on the paper (this was a few years ago) about how his security detail takes him in his SUV to 59th and then he takes the 4/5 from there rather than walking from his house to 77th and Lex.

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.
