Thread updates:

One Shoe Wardrobe- Seems to be an ongoing discussion on how many pairs of foo shoes should be purchased, at what intervals, and utilizing what type of cataloguing/ delivery system.
Some recent highlights:

"I think foof should just order a pair every two months, starting now. It's like laddering CDs. That way, they'll wear out in sequence."

The beauty of the system is that they are supposed to be on a different wear schedule. So they are the same, but different. Do you see?"

"If it takes Alden three months to resole the seven pair, Foo's original pair will be trashed from daily wearing. Not that anyone will notice. The image of his cordovan longwings will remain imprinted on the minds of everyone he knows, whether he is wearing them or not."

Ideas, please."

"It's doing fine on its own."

Shoe Boxes- Apparently, a potential culprit has been sighted on the "other" forum, replete with crimson-collared coat. Also, there is some unsettling talk about vox masquerading as some sort of caped pastry chef. See here:

The conspiracy has spread even beyond the bounds of SF. It was only a matter of time.

For the record, I have what I suspect is the same covert coat."

You were tantalizingly close to unlocking the mystery, but alas, you fell short."

"It should be a cape instead."

"Blame the wearer, not the coat.

I'll have to do an action shot in it, like tipping gdl as I get out of the car, or falling asleep in daywear like T4."

"ouch. Someone is overly sensitive about his choice of sleeved capes"

"The sleeved cape is simply the outerwear version of the Slanket."

"If you scroll down, splitting the picture, can you possibly envision a mandarin collar and/or even a chef's toque atop the wearer's head? Would undoubtedly be a very nice toque, most likely bespoke (I know, I know)."

"Maybe you could be using a pastry bag?"

And so fellow readers, as the respective plots thicken, you be the judge.
