    glad to hear, I imagine these are going to be heavy in the rotation so they'll get the chance to stretch

    My wife loves it when a box of shoes arrive. She just goes out and buys something for the house. My $570 deal on #8 LWBs actually cost $1070, with $500 of that going for new end tables. My argument that the old ones were supporting the lamps just fine did not work.

    In my CXL experience, they are the most forgiving of Aldens and tend to stretch easily. After a few wears, I suspect your Tankers will fit perfectly.






    Thank you all! Best decision I ever made for my clothes was upgrading my camera from just my Iphone :)

    Horsemeat in Tesco burgers prompts apology in UK papers

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21054688

    This is horrible. Can someone tell me if Horween is killing horses to get Cordovan leather? Is it illegal to consume horsemeat in the US?

    Horsemeat is delicious. Wish it was legal in the US.

    It is illegal to slaughter horses for meat in the US, but not illegal to consume horsemeat. It is legal to eat horse in a lot of Europe. A lot of Horween shell, as I understand it, is a byproduct of that.

    FWIW I'd argue that the thoroughbred horseracing industry (popular here in the US) is a lot more inhumane to horses, but this thread is probably not the place for all that
