    Thanks!

    Shoes are marked a 24 1/2 - whatever that equates to! I'd say on a rough estimate they'd run 6-7 but who knows.

    When you cross that center aisle, it's a different world. Women's clothing is not the same as men's and yet, it is?

    AE returns too-far-gone shoes rather than attempting impossible re-crafts.

    I love that Paypal's reasoning is that only 2% of accounts are affected, but it seems that a majority of those affected are so for no reason other than they had a brilliant idea and were trying to capitalize on it. It's not like they were getting tens of thousands of dollars to develop nukes or were funding terrorist activities. Paypal is a sham and this is slowly starting to be revealed. I haven't taken one single payment from another service, simply becuase there is a monopoly at hand, but if there's a tipping point I will be stoked to jump ship.

    Dig, I'm not sure if you're gif refers to my post or yours :D

    I'm staying out of women's clothes from now on in any case. I'll probably avoid that section of the thrift store too.:rimshot:

    Regardless, I love the pic.

    (You've heard, I assume, what Google's AI looked at on the internet when left to its own devices?)

    Stopped by two stores, found a few interesting things.

    Norm Thompson tweed. Made in England. Nothing special, but my size, and I like the clasp.

    Picked up some J. Crew chocolate suede bucks, size 11, made in Italy.

    Also found a new without tags pinstripe Brooks Brothers Makers & Merchants 1818 Madison suit. Size 44 long, 39 waist.

    Lastly, found these shell cordovan ptbs. Can't quite see who the maker is. Any ideas?

    PP a sham? A monopoly? Surely, you jest.

    But, in all seriousness, that NYT has taken notice and reported what has been obvious to a lot of folks for a very long time is encouraging. Perhaps the media might finally succeed where anti-trust lawsuits filed by lawyers whose skills I do not know have failed. I'll be a believer when I can consummate an eBay purchase with a check/money order and no fear.

    Word, I've been thinking about this for awhile and just signed up for an account. Don't people have to also have an account here to send money your way? I suppose I could offer it as an option? Is there a waiting period before you can transfer money between your Dwolla account and your bank account? I'm just assuming every internet payment processing company is as annoying as a credit card or Paypal.

    i have been talking about this paypal crap for over two years now,in canada (and most of europe as far as i know,i know i can do it with my Millenium swedish account and my deutsche bank account as well) you can send a person money through your bank account to another bank account all you need is their email.
    i think its called interac bank to bank payment,if Canada can do it why cant US banks?
    its just so fucking simple,no middleman period.

    The "Genuine Shell Cordovan" on the sole is identical to the lettering on the sole of my Hanovers. The faint interior stamp doesn't match, though. Maybe a different Hanover model?
