OUTSTANDING!! Great job and choice. Yeah if you like to wear a woman's boot and excuse me but that leather is shell on his chukka. Give me more cowbell welt. And shell: And my Alden Ravello shell chukkas are identical concerning the welt. Winston I will update you on my experience of the Barrie last as soon as I can.   Shakedown cruise of black shell PA today on road trip to a small distant regional hospital and clinic: Almost 40 degrees and snow is melting. Wind chill...
That $100m is a drop in the bucket compared to the revenue that BMW created in the local region. Many in NC were upset because SC got them by allowing Corp. tax exemption for a few years. You would think NC would have learned by all the manufacturing in the Greenville area already. I was fine with it living in Asheville as Greenville was closer than the NC location they were offering. I picked up some consulting work from them and some of the hundreds of other companies...
5 years old. First 2 with AE leather lotion last 3 with Bick 4 which like I said appears to be the same thing. Never seen cream or wax to keep the contrast stitching intact.     I have 14 pairs of shell shoes and boots where I use Reno sparing and not often. I'll give it up when you pry it from my cold dead hands.
Yes I agree that they are. And are common enough that many seem to think that they are the only AE shoe that has bowing issues. A conservative dress shoe should not bring attention to itself for those situations where the focus should be somewhere else IMO. Back in Oct. xxx posted: And I replied: And it also applies when sitting in some business situations. You don't see any flashy shoes in those meeting rooms. You said it perfectly, it is exactly the shoe it was designed...
Reno. I have used Renomat on a pair of shell Leeds and followed up right away with Reno, but feel safer with using just Reno.
First used Reno rubbing in small circles pressing hard. After the rag turned black I'd move my finger to a new spot and do it again. As soon as I finished the shoe I took a rag and made it a bit wetter than the start of the Mac method and wiped the whole shoe down and the rag turned black. Then a few minutes brushing. Did that twice. Once they were clean I spent 4 nights in a row starting with a damp rag and 10 minutes brushing per shoe and 5 minutes with the microfiber...
I think many of us are starting to understand how important stripping down to the shell and not using too much product is the way to go. Even when new. I finally got my new black shell PA down to the shell this weekend. Patrick in another thread had mentioned microfiber polishing cloths to buff. I buy the Amazon microfiber clothes in packs of 48 to use as rags on the vehicle and around the house, figured why not try them to finish stripping. It did a fantastic job and...
Just Beautiful...     I've always liked that article too. And Namor has one on his website with Alden shoes in San Fran that have been on display. Nick warns that doing it for too long can let the underlying nature of the shell show through...
You do realize that there are NO GMO Strawberries commercially grown anywhere in the world don't you? So you still have not done a side by side comparison. Funny that you should bring up the Strawberry because the anti GMO crowd always uses it and so many false emails have circulated the internet about it that Strawberry farms have had to start defending themselves and posting information on their websites to set the facts straight,such as this producer in...
  Yes. And no. And if I wanted milk in the 70's I just went down to the bulk tank and dipped it out. In fact it was one of my chores every 2 days. NY was second in dairy production only to Wi. until those happy cows in Ca. took over.    We do not live in just a local community any more when it comes to food, damn I can't believe I just said that. But today the first ship of the season is headed to Duluth now that the ice is almost out and will be heading out soon with...
