As Yoda would say, "Want or want not. There is no need."

:devil:
As Yoda would also say: "Sales are the path to the dark side. Sales lead to jawnz, jawnz lead to more jawnz, too many jawnz leads to suffering." I think that was in the prequels.

Based on he nail pattern and closed channel sole, I assume they are handgrade Crockett and Jones. You're never going to beat that price.
I think Mashburn said they used Alfred Sargent.
I'd also thought Sid uses Sargent, but the nail pattern on the heel does indeed look more like C&J handgrade.

When I run out of closet space, I hang two pieces of outerwear on the same hanger. Either a heavier coat over a thinner jacket/coat or a vest over a jacket. Shackets are particularly good as the first layer.

Maybe I'm confusing my nail patterns. I didn't check on my shoes directly as I own both. AS cost a little less than C&J handgrade, but are similar quality IMO. They have closed channels, a little more shaping in the waist, and use high quality materials. Still a tremendous bargain.

I usually just get rid of old shit I don't wear anymore.

Got this for wifey as she brought the Fox blanket down from her home office and graciously allowed me and the cats to use it.

Impulse bought an Attolini tie from Cavour, got a shipping notice, then an out-of-stock notice. They graciously sent a one-use coupon code but don’t think I need it. Please use if anyone needs it. Also @clee1982

One Use Code: 443JRS - 30% Discount

Got that Ghostburger cheesesteak last night. It was very very good. The burger is also good. I wasn't as crazy about the fried chicken sandwich because they use thigh instead of breast meat. Yes, I ate a lot last night.

Had a couple Troegenators while half-watching football but fell asleep during the second game. Now sitting with coffee, newspapers and stupid cat (who likes to shred my paper). Thinking of walking into Georgetown for lunch at Kafe Leopold. Feels like a bratwurst day.

Didn't they shut down the bridges from VA? Or is that just to vehicle traffic? I'm not planning on going anywhere near downtown for the next week and hopefully things cool down a bit.
