I was at a thrift store the other day here in San Francisco and while scanning the shoe aisle, I spotted what looked like a very nice pair of dusty wingtips that I could not identify. I practically ran up to them to take a look. My excitement was shot to heck when I picked them up and realized I was holding what looked like a cheap facsimile of a quality shoe. It was kind of cardboard-like with cheap leather soles. The brand... Regal.
