Then you engage in some self-reflection. Which is when you tell yourself.."I have 20 pairs from various makers in black, and yet I love brown! What should I do" 🤨
Consequently, now you have 40 pairs without even trying.

Mind you, you still hadn't purchased boots, derbies, and loafers. So you actually approach 100 pretty rapidly.

Seriously I'm waiting for BColle to endow a shoe library with a seed donation of 50 split toe derbies
Whoa 50! Even for a SpTD lover like me, I can't see myself with that many. In fact other than two or three more, I'll retire from the SpTD arena by buying the last two I'd ever need and best money can buy (Hiro Yanagimachi and Templeman offerings).

Great collection of Chinese and English made SpTDs. 👍🏻
For some reason, I thought you had the DOAKs in a 606 last versus the 888 last.

Speaking of EG Dovers, I recently received a call from my cobbler to pick mines up. They are going to feel like new shoes with that new topy!

Which reminds me, I'll need to take some pictures so you guys can see what 10+ year old Dovers look like.

To make them feel even newer, I'd love to replace the sock liner with the new styled ones.

So from this one..

No real reason to phrase it that way. "Hand sewn for under $600" easily would be as effective while attracting his subscribers.
Also, it is not under $600 and that is wrong.
The price is $829.91 SGD ex GST ~ $622.50 USD for the shoe alone and $697.50 USD (with Toe tips and Trees). And there is a up charge for Janus Suede, Museum calf and Utah leather as well depending if someone takes that option.
