Sigh. I had to confess somewhere. Over Thanksgiving I saw a pair of Polo loafers w/ a starting bid of $20, no bidders: I thought they looked just like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Ralph-Lauren-Pol...QQcmdZViewItem ...so against my normal procedure I didn't email any questions. But I was still wary and only bid up to $21 -- taking a small gamble w/ the hope that they were the Langfords. They arrived today, Polo Sport w/ rubber soles! I'm not totally against rubber soles, but they are a far cry from what I'd hoped they were. Not a big waste, but a waste. Sigh. Does anyone else have a simliar story? Misery loves company.
