    Calm down, guys. Stating that someone looks naff in another thread is classier than asking what went wrong with that floor? Really? I didn't know we are now back on the seriousness route.

    clintonf, I really like the first pair of those grensons. Nice polishing job, too.

    Thank you all. The polishing is as a direct result to Wes Bourne's tips on how to buff shoes.

    luk-cha, I'm starting to think you're a centipede or courier that works on foot alone because the many pairs of shoes that you post are always well used [​IMG]

    No, don't try to cover what you said. It was mean and you did that knowingly. As I mentioned earlier, this is not the first time you are doing this. It is one thing to point out mistakes and/or differences in taste, but if you want to be a jerk, be prepared for the hate you will receive.
    good to see you back. btw, should i watch out for the postman. i need my first aldens so badly... [​IMG]
    Thanks, just saw your PM - was out of the country for a bit on work-related stuff.

    he's not a bad guy - he's a bit of fritzl's lapdog since operation paprika began, but so what?

    and obviously he has beef with moo, which is their issue, and should be kept off the forum.
