Congratulations. :)

And I know the pain of having to go from shop to shop all too well. It took me *EIGHT* stores to get Alfie's optical whites so I could get the work done on them properly, and four to get my houndstooth checks.

I'm still deciding on what January's pair will be. I'm deciding between the purple, the red/black, or one of the brocades.

daz says:

Thanks. :)

I'd go for the brocades, they're ultra-lovely. :)

I might just order my next pair from the internet, though, now that I know my size.. That way, I might be able to find them cheaper, too.

bronxelf says:

Well I have until January to decide. The problem with the brocades is which pair to get-- the red or the green. I will likely go for the red, ans I already have two pairs of green chucks already (different colors, though.)

daz says:

I vote for the red ones, too. :)

Nice blue!

Don't feel too bad about what you paid - I paid (IIRC) 35 or 40 pounds sterling for the pink and brown ones, but I'd managed to forget I was planning to spend a day walking when I packed for England.

daz says:

I checked out the black ones first (all they had was black, blue, and baby pink), but decided I liked the blue ones better.

And 35 pounds sterling is still almost a little less than 60 Euros. :/

bronxelf says:

I spose I shouldn't even mention that my new houndstooth ones, which are a little pricier than normal ones, were gotten at the cost of about 24 pounds sterling?

You can get your blue ones here for about 17 pounds sterling.

Oh yes a bit of old school class to illuminate our dreary lives

Elf: Come on, rub it in some more. ;>

(How much are the pinstripe ones in the US?)

13th Oct 2005, 01:16

bronxelf says:

I'd have to look. But probably the same price as my houndstooth ones. I mean, even the *REALLY* expensive ones here are about 45 pounds sterling.

13th Oct 2005, 01:21

daz says:

That's around 67 Euros, right?

(you can talk dollars to me, that's easier to convert. :))

13th Oct 2005, 01:24

bronxelf says:

The most expensive ones here are about 90 bucks.

I can get the regular ones for 38 and the specialish ones for 40-45, usually. But as I said, the upper, upper end on this is still 90 bucks.

13th Oct 2005, 01:36

daz says:

I haven't even checked out the very upper end here. I do know that the specialish ones are around 70 - 90 euros here. And that's provided you can actually FIND them (except maybe online). :)

(Seven stores - and all they had in the end was black, navy, and baby pink. ;))

bronxelf says:

I told you--I had to go through eight to find *one* pair of Optical WHITE in Alfie's size.

13th Oct 2005, 01:40

daz says:

... and that in NYC, where I thought you could buy anything, anywhere, anytime. ;)

13th Oct 2005, 01:43

bronxelf says:

I did buy it. It just took me eight stores to get the right *size*. Apparently he wears a popular shoe size.
