Yikes. I get paid most of my income for the year in January of the next year. So, as usual, I found myself with a little money in January. Well, this year I went completely bonkers. I have lost 65 lbs over the past several years, and really needed to update my wardrobe. (Went from a 48L to a 42L.) So I got some new suits and shirts . . . and this started a chain reaction, leading to the following total meltdown in March: Vass - Old English Oxford U-last (black) Vass - Asquith U-last Oxford (cognac) (from SF Member msawch) Vass - Plain Derby U-last (black) (from SF Member Tombrone) Gaziano & Girling - St. James Oxford (cedar) Gaziano & Girling - Hayes Oxford (black) Sutor Mantellassi - Norvegese Monk (dark oak) C&J Handgrade - Audley Oxford (dark oak) C&J - Westbourne Oxford (mahogany) C&J - Maidstone Monk (dark chocolate) C&J - Wigmore Oxford (slightly used) (brown) from Member mta265 C&J - Weymouth Oxford (brown) Allen Edmonds - Strand (walnut) Allen Edmonds - McAllister (merlot) Allen Edmonds - MacNeil (black cordovan) Alfred Sargent - Burlington Slip-On (black) (discontinued, been looking for these for over a year) Clark's Desert Boots (loden suede) Clark's Desert Boots (taupe suede) Gola - soccer shoes (navy suede) Gola - soccer shoes (gray suede) If I had been able to find the right EGs or Lobbs, I'd have bought them too. There's literally a sort of blackout period, of which I have only the haziest memory of tequila and credit cards, at the end of which I have all these shoes, no money whatsoever, and am sleeping on the couch because my wife says she is waiting to slit my throat while I sleep. I think the only way I could sink to a lower eschelon of fiscal responsibility would be to become a member of Congress. Of course, it was worth it. If anybody's interested, I'd be happy to round them all up and take a picture. In the near future, I will be selling my entire closet's worth of 48/46 stuff to help cover the damage. Probably one of the kids, as well. Per several requests, here are some (not very good) photos.
