Good advice. The plan is then to wait for the manufacturer to get back to me.
Thanks. There's a saddlery shop near my office as well (What? It's Texas.) that I thought about checking out for stuff to do some interim cleaning with.
I've never been a big fan of the Lagavulin. Ardbeg IMO does the best at balancing the peaty, medicinal flavors of islays against the other notes and if what you want is peat and iodine it's really hard to beat Laphroaig. Lagavulin always seemed to me like they couldn't decide which they wanted to do. I have not tried the PX cask but I suppose I should now. I like a good sherry finish from time to time. I've also been enjoying the bottle of Bunnahabhain I have at home....
I have to agree. Those Beige linen twill look bangin'.
Now that it has come in, I've got a better. answer. I called Tanner Krolle and spoke with a very courteous representative who I took pictures for and put them up on my flickr so that he could give me a quote on the restoration costs. You can see them here. Overall the leather is very dry and I'm trying not to open and close it too much. The lining is okay, but most likely needs to be replaced. The straps are starting to crack and should probably be replaced. I hope that...
The Scotch appreciation thread is great if you want to branch out. Bunch of guys who know and love to drink the stuff. There are certainly milder scotches that can help you ease into things. IIRC, lowlands - Glenkinchie, Auchentoshan - are usually good about being less abrasive than others but still bringing in some of the more scotch-like aspects to things.Here is the hit list. It is the best resource I've ever found for getting new whisky ideas.
Have fun with the peat chain saw soaked in iodine. I can't drink the 10 anymore. For that age Ardbeg does better and Laphroaig's other offerings are just overall superior.
YMMV. I wear mine with boots as well, but was dissatisfied with the width after shrinking. They reminded me of the baggy jeans I used to wear in high school. They're still pretty relaxed, but I think the look is better. Certainly not skinny or tight, but with a better line. If I do buy another pair I will probably size down next time. This may alleviate the problem.
(I can do this and play with the meme at the same time.)My experience with the big jawnz jawnz was that they did not shrink a full 9%. I'm not that skinny any more, but I really felt like the only thing that shrunk to me during that part of the process were the waist and hips. The legs were huge and I ended up taking them in and having them tailored after all was said and done. This was also because while I liked cuffing them I wanted them to be a bit cleaner and so had...
Tanner Krolle, kopped from the 'bay. From the fonts used on the inside - does anyone have any idea what "the John Mendez Collection" is? - I'm guessing it was made between the mid '60s and the mid '70s. There are some blemishes at other, less flattering angles and the interior looks to be original. Hardware probably needs work. It's to be on its way soon and I'll have a better sense of things, but overall it looks to be in pretty bad ass condition. The leather can...
