carmina kills it again. they are masters with the shell
settle down little man
[SIZE]4[/SIZE] I am in the midst of ordering from Meermin's Linea Maestro, style 10165 which they now have in a Burgundy color. However, I can't decide between the black and the burgundy. Even though this style may not cater to your particular sense of taste,( I tend to be "outside the box," and enjoy being different while trying not to be tacky) which of the two colors appeal? I think it is a beautiful shoe in both colors and enjoy the excitement of ordering from overseas. Thanks much.
That normally makes me laugh. You , Quadcammer, of the size 38? should think twice. I have followed SF for years, and only recently , little man- literally, have declined postings. There is a bit too much crying over Meermin and Carmina, Vass etc... Most postings are from those who had no idea what an Oxxford vs. Kiton really meant growing up. I had to jump in, Quad- as you truly are the "little man"- no I mean that, you at that size, are the "little man" aren't you?
Perhaps you haven't visited the Ambrosi threak... Americans? If you want things done quickly, go to the Chinese.
BB is made overseas.
oooo, tough guy. You gonna offer to fight me now?
I know, but is sold locally.
C'mon quadcammer, don't show weakness, or fragility. You have good insight, are sometimes intelligently "aware", but please, don't walk into an easy riposte. Too often you show a meandering love affair with American shoe makers, and can't help but feel that you show the "markings" of a newbie, nothwithstanding the volume of postings, most of which seem to be curmudgeonly, know it all, ad homs. I'm guessing you are a 35 ish, never had an innate sense of style, learned much of what you know throgh this site, and live through it. It is ok, My opinions are simply based on having been weaned on Alden from the age of 16- I know of no greater hyperbolistic boasting of AE and Alden than from those on this site. You, as a seemingly simple "mimic", post as though you really understand that upon which you opine. C'mon, 38'er, we both know you grew up with Walkovers, Bass weejuns and the like. You graduated to "platypus" style Boss shoes, or any others found in Dillard's You are an easy mark, but enjoy it. Lighten up, Junior
green shell ftw
And before you reply Quadcammer- take a deep breathe and say to yourself " thiis guy knows me, I was a lowly department store shopper til SF opened my eyes. He's right, I shouldn't have been so caustic. I was from tthe darkened land of ignorance and shame, SF showed me the way, and I have no right repaying that gift of knowledge and enlightenment, with a disparaging statement to another brother of the Forum. I find you a great man of style, wisdom, and a follower with many, many insights, Sorry Todd"
With regret and admiration,
No need Quadcammer, in my book you are a 44 long, with size 13D shoes
