I know this will ruffle the feathers of many here, but I am not at all a fan of the color 8 combo with brass eyelets. I would certainly go for the matching eyelets. When the color 8 tends to be eggplant-like, the contrast with bright yellow/gold looks gaudy, imo. I mean no offense to anyone here. I suppose I am just a little more conservative.
Have been really busy at work and haven't posted pics or anything much recently, but I do enjoy looking and reading. Love the Tifosi-Ryden humor (intended or not) and the recent shell. This thread is a distant third on my list behind wife and daughter, and very much appreciated!
Gotta hate the interception! The last time that happened to me, I ordered a pair from Alden DC that arrived around Dec 15th. My wife snagged it without telling me, wrapped it, and stuck it under the Christmas tree. I had no idea, as I had lost track of which shoes were arriving and when! Talk about a surprise for a Christmas gift, ugh!
