Received a birthday gift of a shell cordovan shoe horn!! Looks so cool and nice with cordovan being slick enough to work for shoes in this way. It's the little things that make each day more enjoyable.
Wish I could! I'm working Friday and then out of town for the weekend unfortunately. But look forward to pics and hearing all about it.Also forgot to snap a pic of these bad boy Butteros I'm wearing today as well. So comfy!!
Wearing my Inis Meain anthracite (what a cool color name) cable knit Aran sweater - getting to those temps in NYC now. Sorry for the less than optimal lighting.
Dark brown kenilworths in calf ready for another day's work, and almost may be time for its first resole soon.
