    Anybody sitting on any black AE Park Avenues in
    11D? Reasonable?

    I have a friend for whom I'm trying to
    put together an "interview suit" for an
    upcoming date in a couple of weeks.

    If not Parks, ANY black bals in 11 D
    will be considered.


    Get at me!

    You are correct in that it is not real handwriting. I have a pair of of black oxfords and they are very comfortable though.

    Frenchy: Wow! You scored big time on that guitar!! :worship:



    Owch! Harris shoes are very nice. Hope they're still there.



    This is a great score! I found a Roland synth is a thrift earlier this year and was thrilled to find it. They're pretty hard to find, so you did well. These were built like tanks too.


    Nice! For $13, you can't go wrong!


    Had a couple other good finds today that I just got around to checking out.

    A couple porcelain figurines that could have some possible value.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-POR...ative_Arts&hash=item51a091c884#ht_2944wt_1163

    Got it for $6.99

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230508561208&_trksid=p2992.m753#ht_4656wt_1397

    Got it for $2.99

    Also picked up a couple LPs. "Sonfolk": Self-titled. Local private press folk psych. Still in the shrink. Already have a copy so this will head for the bay. Looks like they average $40-$70 in this condition. Also got a decent copy of Donovan's "Catch The Wind" on Hickory.

    I did some measuring because I didn't want to confuse people, and this looks to be correct.

    Got a 11.5 insole for the Royal Tweeds which were the same as a 10.5 in some Hanovers I had. Then a 12 insole for some 11D Allen Edmonds. So I guess send me that PM Dig if that'll work.

    I met him around 1995 or so when I was in high school. I had just bought american flag red white and blue converse allstars. figured "what's more american than bb king?" asked him to sign my sneaker! wasn't happy, but he did it. I still have those shoes!

    Just noticed the "banned" caption on frenchytoo's posts. Don't know what occurred, but I've transacted with him twice, and he's just a great guy to deal with (Corneliani and Etro sportcoats, both amazing, btw, frenchytoo has a great eye for quality at a very fair price). Hope he comes back very, very soon.

    I'm assuming ban evasion is against forum rules, so simply by coming back he is subject to another ban.

    Are you fucking serious? What a bunch of horseshit. Barring a legitimate explanation for why he was banned, I'm done with this place. If he was banned for anything like/related to the Man of Lint bullshit from before, then this place is fucking worthless and not even worth lurking anymore if a poster with some of the consistently best finds isn't even allowed to be here.
