    You grew up in Martinez? Thats awesome. They are in Evans. Best Waffle House in the world on Washington Road. You still go back? There was a Mexican place in Martinez that was off the chain, I forgot the name.

    I grew up in the West Lake subdivision. My parents still work in Augusta. They split their time between a place in Evans and a place about 1 1/4 hours outside of Augusta. I visit a few times a year. Your wife's family? Where did she go to high school?

    As long as you correctly pronounce Martinez in only a way that someone from that area would pronounce it.

    PRL Darlton shell wingtips. Seller says worn twice, but no sole pics. Size 10. $450 BIN.

    Shit, that is tempting... He states Church's, but thats not right, is it? I thought those were C&J.


    and edit - NVM, I see they are running big. You think these are too big for a US 9.5? I took at 10 in the Redways and they are slightly big.

    I've no personal experience with sizing, but they should be C&J.

    I'm not a shell cordovan guy, I'm not even sure if "cordovan horsehide" is the same thing but here are a nice pair of vintage Cole Haan captoes. Shell seems to go for a pretty penny so I suppose if it is, then $199.00 is a decent price . . .

    Great find

    Yes, they are CJ (don't recall the last). I own a pair, and they are GREAT. They run a half size big. And that pair was topyed, so there's no real telling whether they are indeed only worn twice. Also, price is not that great. For a few bucks more, you can get them new when RL runs its sale on them.

    I went true to size with my Darltons - I went with 10.5D, and most of my AE's are 10.5D.

    I wear the Darltons quite a bit.
