Care to elaborate^

Did you ever manage to get those size 11 Lofgrens on the first rung of the property ladder?

I'm replacing a lot of crappy modern fixtures in my house with very pretty antique ones (from roughly the same time period as the clothing styles I like), I've tried posting about this infatuation here before but it didn't really seem to catch anyone else's fancy (but rest assured I will try again).

My footwear roster has been pretty stable for years now with Lofgren Engineers, White's Bounty Hunter, Danner hikers, and a few years back I added some Bedrock sandals for summertime. Every now and then I'm tempted by Moto and Lofgren, but not enough to reach for the wallet so far.


I make things out of leather.

Please post jappaned/copper flash hardware stuff, love seeing it. I'm looking out for some of my own but it's hard finding the right pieces at the right price.

Thanks for the encouragement, gents. Have a look at the now-bustling Vintage Interiors thread!

I’m still good.

Though I may need new Work shoes at some point this year, which I said doesn’t count, but I’m still good with not buying anything so far. My girlfriend forgot I was doing this and got me a $100 gift card to Cotton Sheep so there will definitely be a Kapital purchase at some point this year... which I don’t really feel bad about considering I got a gift card toward it... it will be a really fully thought out and intentional purchase. Might try to wait until my birthday, but that’s in november, heh.
