    Florsheim by Duckie Brown - saw them right before I walked out. $130 quickly escaped the clutches of my money clip.
    Excellent find! You seem to have some great luck at your Nordy Rack. I've never found anything worth buying at mine outside of some cheap Woodlore shoe trees.

      Nice! Been wanting to make a trip to my (semi) local Rack....

        Thanks guys. I was pretty stoked; so much so that I took and uploaded that grainy, dimly-lit pic. I'll try to snap a better one in the daylight.

        Andrew/Luke, best wishes on your Nordy Rack adventures. They truly are hit & miss; mostly miss. But this particular one I consider a decent looting.

          This forum needs more emoticons. None of them quite convey how HOLY BALLS impressed by this find. Way to go.

            Haha! Yeah, "HOLY BALLS" was close to what I exclaimed when I realized what they were.

            I've read a mix of both negative and glowing reviews of this DBxF cordo lineup - some folks have had issue with the quality while others - nothing but great XP. I figured they were worth a shot.

            I already have the very similarly-styled Veblens in a nice casual versatile brown, which fit my dorky pan-flat feet very well, so here's hoping these work out too. So far so good, on the indoor carpet auditioning. With the sturdy stacked soles and the hardy Horween Cordovan they are absolute BEASTS.

            But yeah... HOLY BALLS! Thanks, Los.

              Yoyo, have you found those Clarks chukkas yet? I've emailed the UK site but still no response--more than a week ago, so what's up with their customer service?!

                No Duvel, not yet. We hit a local outlet mall which I thought might carry them, but did not see them.

                There's another Clarks store nearby that I was also thinking of. We'll probably hit that outdoor mall soon too, but not right now during... *SNOWMAGEDDON*!

                I'll let ya know if/when I do. And hopefully you hear back soon from the UK side.

                  i received this jcrew sport coat this morning

                  http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...3995/33995.jsp

                  and found that it was wardrobed (bought to be worn once then returned) and found these vows in the pocket...

                    He's promising only 70 years. And he wore a "wardrobed" jacket to their wedding. Can you say, Red flags?

                      Hahah, that's neat!

                        Other red flags:
                        -Failing to spell out numbers smaller than twelve
                        -Failure to use an Oxford comma
                        -Lack of parallelism (e.g. first two use 'You' followed by perfect tense, third uses present tense)
                        -Her passions are hula hoops, cupcakes, and fitness
                        -Her smile is extra large but her head is medium sized

                          in his defense, if i paid msrp for this thing i'd want my money back too i paid $125, and it's still not such a great deal imo

                              Maybe he was just proposing; and kept the tags on just in case she said "no ah-ah."

                              I do like the pocket treasures (WODER!) that can often be found in thrifted sportcoats, etc. Some of them can be pretty cool, historically. Still, this one is lame if the previous owner did indeed wear once and return.

                                Who on earth reads from a (not particularly well-composed) type-written script to propose? It's a proposal, not a state of the union address.
