    Here is some pron and some thanks to StyleForum for guiding me over the past year. And without further ado...

    Let's start with a little bit of Pre SF shoe damage:

    And finally, some G&Gs!

    Nice montage - and nice of you not to dwell on how the SF helped guide you out of your $!

    Style Forum might not help you make money, but it will sure show you how to spend it right.

    This.

    Honestly, if I did not spend my money on shoes and such, then I probably would spend it on much sillier things... and I do enough of that already! I also am still on my parents dime, so I might as well spend my money on something productive. I figure I will need all this stuff eventually when I am out in the work force.

    A good rationalization is that you are helping the poor economy, and also you could be spending it on drugs or something.

    Too bad 99% of the money I spend on clothes goes to England, or Paris...

    Good eye on the AEs. They are definitely not seconds, alas.

    And the sloops are from Will:

    Me thinks, "fox" refers to the colour, not to the supplier of the skin [​IMG] .

    No, definitely not. And it's good to see that you wear them, too. On pavement.

    If SF had been around when I was in first year (at home), who knows what I would have bought.

    You're right - baby steps first. Start on shag rugs, then work your way up to industrial carpeting, and then (only if you're brave enough) step out onto pavement. [​IMG]

    I'm cruel to my shoes that way, I suppose. But I've given up trying to use the polished soles of my shoes as shaving mirrors.

    If SF had been around in first years of my life, I would have been the smartest kid in the play pen.

    I received today a pair of Cheaney chukka boots from a reputable ebay seller (Anand). The seller was mentioning a retail price of £275.00 and I was thinking the Signature range. I contacted Sheila from Cheaney and she warned me that these might be subs (they are, but I see no defects) and are from the recently updated Cheaney of England collection. The model is Crawley. I could find it only on this website. These are on the same last as my Burton chelsea boots I was wearing today, The Crowley will replace my Loake Kemptons in suede and with the brown CJ Tetbury will be my favourite wet days fall/winter shoes thanks to the Dainite soles. They seem to be almost as well built as the Tetbury and have a similar elongated last. Here are some pics of the Crowley chukka + Burton chelsea boots and some unworn Lester derbies from the Cheaney Signature collection [​IMG] Cheaney Crowley [​IMG] [​IMG] Cheney Burton [​IMG]
