    Well played... I wasn't paying attention. 3 hours of sleep per night, coupled with 2 hours of tennis this evening has left me operating on auto-pilot.

    It really depends on the individual pair. Many AE seconds are practically indistinguishable from firsts. Then again, many seconds look like Frankenshoes. I would never gift a pair without closely examining them. Other than that, I am sure the recipient would be happy to receive them.

    Rochefort tie will be from these guys: https://rochefort.com.au/

    If you head over to the Australian Members forum, there may be some Sydneysiders who can tell you more about them.

    Looked up Ripon because i was curious - they seem to be a local custom uniform maker, probably for communal leagues or maybe schools

    Not sure if it's flippable, but it's definitely a cool piece
    I'd be curious if they could ID it based on the pics you took. Put their sales guys to the test :p

    PS - congrats on the house, and your daughter is absolutely adorable

    So I dropped the cockhorse off at the post office and guess what was waiting in my PO Box? A beautiful pair of gloves from @HansderHund all the way from Austria, just over a week after I ordered them. Amazing!

    Check out his store at https://leotjames.com/. I want to buy pretty much all of the scarves and leather goods...

    It's just a typical high Wednesday here.

    I think I found the item with the highest retail price for the lowest thrift price I have ever found.
