FM Geranium pour Monsieur today.
Sorry if this was already posted, but did anyone see the new Alden x Drake's line? http://drakes-diary.tumblr.com/post/97732242264/alden-x-drakes-we-are-pleased-to-announce-that Looks like only suede makeups right now, but I'm curious to see if they expand it. (Damn expensive though.)
Thanks DWFII!
Franceschetti dark brown half brogue bluchers, size EU44 (US11), $239: http://www.yoox.com/us/44653847AH/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=44653847AH&sizeId=13 I don't know much about the brand, but they look pretty nice and considering Barney's usually sells 'em for $630 or so, it might be a good deal for someone.
I just received my first pair of Goyser welted Dinkelacker boots. I thought the conventional wisdom was that the Goyser welt is more waterproof than Goodyear, but then I saw this post by DWFII where he mentioned that if the thread wasn't properly waxed it could actually wick moisture into the shoe. Do any of you that own Goyser welted shoes do any sort of maintenance on the welt stitching? Should I periodically hit it with some clear wax to keep it sealed?
Dinkelacker's incoming! Thanks @edmorel! I got the UK9, but as of now he still has the UK8.5 available. http://www.styleforum.net/t/422185/volpe-bespoke-jackets-nib-trickers-nib-dinkelacker-boots-and-budas-clearance/0_30#post_7378490
Just sent Ed a PM for those Dinkelacker boots! Hopefully no one grabbed the UK9s yet.
PM sent for the UK9 boots!
Nooooooooo! I cleaned up the past two years at that sale. The first year they even had Caruso for Drake's SCs for stupid cheap.
Hmm, I don't doubt you, but I don't think I've owned any where the back is touching and the front of the heel is lifted up a bit. I honestly hadn't paid that much attention to it before though. Since C&J has this feature/flaw clearly displayed on the first page of their site, I just emailed them to see if they would elaborate on this. I'm not really anticipating much of a response, but if it's anything interesting I'll post it here.
