A pair of Bostonian chukkas I got a few weeks ago. Cognac, leather sole, made in USA. The leather is very stiff and shiny; can anyone tell if they're shell?

I think they're corrected grain, and they've got that pug-ugly...
Now that you mention it, I have seen an increase in the quantity, if not the quality, of new stuff hitting the floors in the last week or two. Maybe we'll all start hittin' it until April.
Pics of the vintage Dan Posts I got about a week ago. Chestnut color, 3/4 welt, wooden pegs, steel shank, 4 rows of single-needle B/W stitching, made in 1981 in El Paso, TX. Very good to excellent condition. Fit and feel perfect. Paid $7.99.

I don't know. I'm not familiar with Levi's leather jackets, but something about the leather itself just looks...off; plasticky. Maybe it's just the lighting in the picture (wouldn't be the first time).
Congrats, Alan. Not a bad way to ring out the old and ring in the new.
I've got 3 pairs of cowboy boots. 2 pairs stand up on their own with no problem. 1 pair that I thrifted is a little broken down, so I confiscated a pair of those boot supports from my wife to use in them, and they work great. Can get a little tricky if you're using shoe trees, too. I wouldn't worry about the creases in your dress boots, but if it really bothers you, get a pair of the boot supports and try them. If you can post pictures, it would help.
Thanks, Trapp. And I'd love to show them, but with the crappy little laptop I'm currently using, I can't. I'll try to get something up soon.
If you can read this, you're not drunk enough. (But, apparently, I am. Carry on.)
