    ok, glad im not just being an asshole. Nothing personal, but as soon as i hear anyone start assigning class levels, that speaks bundles of their character.

    but back on track.....you know youre an SFer when a post that reads ... can be interpreted. ;)

    Do me a favor, go take a pair of your used shoes to your local shelter, and ask a homeless guy if he wants them. If he says no, he does not want them - then you can come back and post. If he shows you gratitude like you have never seen before, and you feel better for helping someone in need, then please shut up and never litter this forum with your ridiculous nonsense again. OK? What a ridiculous fucking comment.

    if this is you being "tackful" (im assuming you meant tactful) then my first impression was right, you are an asshole. By referring to somewhere as low class you in turn seem to be referring to yourself as high class. Id take more time to tell you exactly how much of an asshole you are, but im too lazy to take my time to do a point by point lecture on your personality from your posts. Its pretty apparent, so ill save myself the time...blah blah. People like you just make me fucking sick. and again...back on track.. you know youre an SFer when you know a poster from what he looks like from the neck down. I have no clue what Spoo looks like, but i guarantee you i could pick him out of a crowd when walking down the street in NY. fucking sad.

    You dress really weird, but don't care as you think anonymous people from a chat room on the internet would approve.

    I would be the guy giving shoes to the homeless, while this troll up there would be laughing at him.

    You schedule visits to your tailor around visiting trunk shows. (At least I plan to. Hopefully...)

    I did some tie shopping on eBay because I liked some old ones from the Met. Museum. But they were in immaculate condition. Your description is more or less accurate in describing thrift store locations in my area. Being mid-LI, the brand selection in general would suck. This is why I love eBay. Pictures and accurate descriptions...which if they are falsely written, result in a prompt paypal refund. Although I still use ebay for new with tags stuff, as used in general...bothers me.

    That's why you're Spoo - The One and Only. Us mere mortals can only aspire to your skills and finding t3h m4d d3415.

    Yes yes, very valid clothing tips I must add. Utterly wonderful. Is this debate a leftover from when you were in high school? In the village of Hurbum near Tillet in Herts (UK), lives Lucy Lykes who owns the Cockwell Inn. The address is: Lucy Lykes, The Cockwell Inn, Hurbum, Tillet, Herts.

    I've had them in Shawnee Mission, the Upper East Side, various London shops, & in San Francisco.

    While I don't buy used shoes -- although I do wear my some of my father's old shoes and I do donate my shoes when I no longer want them -- some of my favorite tailored pieces were picked up at used (vintage if you prefer) clothing stores. There is NOTHING wrong with used if it's a good piece in good condition. If it's good, it's good ... matters not if it was made for me at a cost of $5000 or I got it for $5 at Goodwill (an Oxford coat in a check that is perfect for Christmas Eve). My very favorite coat is a Kiton in a tweed of grass green with an electric blue windowpane ... picked up at Good Byes in S.F.

    And that's coming from someone who has more Savile Row bespoke than he cares to admit. Although some time back a hint was dropped.
