    Those are horrible, but I kinda wish I had a pair. Spoo probably already does. As for the AE pebblegrain casual saddles. I've seen far worse.

    ^^ I believe those are bespoke, so the client has to be blamed rather than the designer

    Then the client is the designer?

    But any time you put your name on anything even if the customer demands it you're responsible. If your name is on a turd nobody is going to blame the customer. I guess they might blame the customer for buying a turd from you but in the end it's your name that gets covered in muck.

    Believe it or not, those were Lobbs according to the seller.

    Spoo was the seller, so you will have to ask him.

    And then there are the L. V. shoes...

    Used shoes once offered for sale on B&S

    Attachment 63406


    Seen girls here in Korea wearing something similar. Looked pretty good on them.

    Maybe they were made for a large woman?

    Oh, yes, it is for real.


    If only there was snow in Mexico, these could double as skis.

    There are places in the Southwest where people go sledding on sand.
