flattery gets you everywhere, girls(and guy). :P thanks so much. So, now the dreaded decision.....now that i know i can "pull off" sammys and like them, i think i will either sell these or send them back, and get another wash and start fresh. I prefer a cleaner look with no distress holes. i love easy rider wash and like dark pony.
anyhow, thanks to all for your nice comments. made me feel good
