    Alright, Singapore Gents. I'm planning to start a shoe club here in Singapore (in fact, anything sartorial can be the order of the day)

    I've already sounded out some of the English shoe makers and the response thus far has been positive.

    If 'The Rake' is from Singapore I don't see how we should not have something to live up to it.

    There's a time for Flip flops and there's a time for a balmoral boot with beveled waists.

    PM me and lets make it happen and not let APEC steal the limelight from the REAL issues.


    Are Small-Timersâ„¢ welcome to the club?

    Hi all, Response has been very good for the shoe club idea. There ARE quite a number of Sg gents coming out of the woodwork! we'll convene the first meeting in the next weeks. Those who have PMed, You're in the loop! For those who are interested and have not come forward, PM me for more details[​IMG] Once we have established something, maybe we we can invite The Rake to write a piece on us![​IMG]

    If they are Bata flip-flops then it is a pretty up market affair.

    I think it is admirable and generous that you did what you did for the few lucky SF'ers. I sure hope it was appreciated.

    The five #6's that I bought have sold and been shipped. I shipped a couple of 5 and 6's together, and they turned out to be more than twice the shipping for one magazine. Who knew? Also, Canada remains the most expensive place in the world to ship.

    Pm me for anything extra you had to cover for those!

    No doubt, but see below...
