    I don't know how they did it, but even the stitching of the lining to the uppers doesn't appear to be messed up. It is almost as if the new stitches went into the old holes and didn't create new ones. Maybe that's just the product of using a sewing machine for uppers.

    Almost a shame to wear em again, frame em!

    Nah, with that quality of product and service they should be worn proudly, as I'm sure they will!

    So what's your real name and why do they have CG pinned to the waist?

    Many people on Style Forum are disappointed when they find out that my real name isn't Patrick Booth. A large majority of them still call me Patrick, or Booth, IRL though and they refuse to call me by my real name.

    I'm not disappointed...I'm just curious--I have an analytical mind (I suspected foul play or something untoward when I saw the bottoms of your shoes.)

    Do you ever let slip your real name...or the dogs of war, whichever comes first?

    They look fabulous, just like new.

    I've never let it slip on here. I'm not against people knowing who I am or anything, I'd just rather not have it plastered all over the internet for many reasons that I am sure you can guess.

    I'll also add that the mystique of pB is much more interesting than the real pB (I'm a pretty simple person).

    Talk more about that...who was/is he? Maybe he's the most interesting person in the world...and stays thirsty.

    I made up Patrick Booth on the spot years ago. I happened to be reading a book at the time where the protagonist's name was Patrick, and I stole Booth from an alias that David Lynch used, "Judas Booth". Seemed to fit well.

    Probably easier...albeit hugely time consuming...to hit all the holes by hand. Still, it can be done by machine--just takes a bit more time and effort.

    Any which way they did it, I'm impressed.

    I forgot to mention to them that on future orders I don't want a sock liner for some of the reasons that you have pointed out in the past.

    What would those problems be if I might ask?
