Nice. A new box.

Branded jewellery box ?


#1186

There be boots in there


#1187

Oh. I thought you were just giving her the branded bag to carry stuff around in. Mrs VB has a cloth bag with DESY on it which I got handed at a meeting at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron once. There’s so much science around here that complete strangers in Sainsbury’s spot the bag and smile at her despite her never having even been to Hamburg.

I got this bag in Munich. Never got a smile from anyone while using it :grinning:

My new off gumtree workboots

Still boxed 15 quid

Practical yet stylish for the man about town


#1190

Too many pieces of leather. Looks like they’re made from off cuts :roll_eyes:


#1191

Fussy


#1192

Always.


#1193

Are they Nubuck?

#1195

Mmmm…brown and greasy :smiley:

I’m not really interested in footwear - to me they’re functional rather than decorative items.

However, when Ann saw me looking at this thread, she reminded me of her family history of shoemaking/cobbling. This is a pic of her Great Grandad’s (or it might have been great great :thinking:) shop in East Molesey, Surrey, in about 1890.

@Penance should note - boots were 1/6 back then (7.5p) :smiley:

Used to go to Brick lane or Petticoat lane to buy them in the 70s,or Wembley market


#1200

Something up with your guts Stu? :wink:


#1201

Whoops


#1202

They appear most rugged and in keeping with your outward deportment. Do they have a vegetarian option?


#1203

Did they survive the journey home loose in your car ? I’d have thought everything would have needed to be strapped down pretty damn tight.
