    Welcome - always willing to help a gentleman out.



    They may be old - but they're still sweet kicks. Although nothing lasts forever.........they'll probably fall apart with another 20 years or so of heaving wear. :butbut:



    Didn't your mother teach you anything about talking to men in restrooms?!?!?!?! :nest:



    Yes - and they do burgundy especially well it seems. I'm thinking a London Oxford, U last, will probably be my first choice.



    Me today:

    Shoes - C&J
    Socks - Pantherella
    Trou - Well - they are ebay cheapies.

    Another example of George H.W. Bush rocking his socks. It's not the best picture, but he is obviously the one with the bright blue socks.

    imo, the caro socks do not fit in with the pants and the shoes either.

    I ordered the same size I wear in the AS 87 last. The lasting on these is quite long as they're 1/2" longer longer than my AS and a touch wider.
