    Hah-Thats funny, I did not pay attention to the size! I'm a 13D. I don't think the shoe in question is that size? However...I'm out anyway. Just had all my cabinets refinished and they look great! But the cabinet company pulled a bunch of my texture loose on Sheetrock and got stain on my bricks. A big pain, needless to say another project thats not budgeted. At least I was smart enough to hold back 1/2 of the job until finished. Just found out the crew has not been paid in 2 weeks! Plus I'm still recovering from the great shell cordovan shoe hunt held in May/June of 2013 :)

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Not for me, but I applaud his individualism. Carry on, Sir.

    That's funny too and for the record I have branched out. Here's my Brown CXL, and I've not broke in my BB Dark brown suede casual loafers yet. I have to slowly feed you guys!

    See Ya,

    I was outside getting some fresh air and looked down and lamented that I should have worn my whiskey tassel loafers today. Coming back inside and seeing your "Tassel Tuesday" post has only made me regret my decision more. Oh well... there's always next week.

    Uncle-Thanks!

    Here's the BB dark brown suede LHS. Not worn or broken in yet. I still have a lot of pairs from the "spree" that have not seen pavement yet. Will post as I get a chance to wear them.

    See Ya,

    A model that is terribly rare. :nodding:

    Four pairs of the same shoe is just about right......

    I once read on a Japanese shoe magazine. There was a shoe connoisseur that bought, among many others, three pairs of the same Alden Modified last Navy Suede boots from Anatomica in Paris. He explained that two pairs were worn regularly in his rotation, and the third pair were saved for his "unworn collection".

    Makes sense to me, I have more than 1 pair of the same underwear, tshirts, blue jeans, socks, and shirts. If you have shoes you like and they fit, get multiple pairs!

    See Ya,
    Steve
