    Of, course. We should commission a thread to help you collect them. Here's another ancient one:

    :happy:

    Guilty as charged. Upon re reading it I felt a minor adjusment would result in great improvement. After all the fine art of poetry is all about the subtle details.

    I'm still looking for a proxy in France to assist me in purchasing a pair of Grail shoes. Seller will not ship to the US.

    Beautiful Oxxford double-breasted camel hair overcoat. Typical stunning, big-ass Oxxford overcoat buttons. 40R. BIN of $187.49. I'd buy it but I already have a Polo camel hair polo coat, but this is nicer (even though it doesn't have all of the classic polo coat details).

    NB: Seller states: "has few mouth bites but no holes...it is in excellent condition. wear it proudly". I suggest asking for pictures of the "mouth bites". But if it looks OK, it's a great deal.

    I don't understand comments like this. unless the last is obviously visibly completely wonky (which isn't the case here), how can a last be "awful".? It might be awful fitting for you, but not all lasts are made for all people. they are as much (or more) functional as they are aesthetic.

    they fit plenty of people fine.

    NOT shell
    NOT burgundy
    NOT double sole.

    It does look like a double sole, no? Or perhaps I have the concepts backwards too?
