I expected something more clever from you both. I am disappoint.

Anyway, Aldens are famous for changing shades and developing a nice, rich patina with some wear and polish. The only way to be sure of how a shoe, or anything else for that matter, looks is to see it in person. I wonder if Tom has room on his couch for me.

"Made in China" has always been a cultural representation of the export of our economy, craftsmanship and manufacturing base. Sure, I'm sure some things come out of there with...
Sold the trucker jacket L and bought the 5165L with the proceeds plus $25. If anyone's interested I can post pics when it arrives.

I'm hoping we can have this discussion without any attacks. I am very happy with the Chromexcel Plaza Wingtip Boots from Leather Soul. See that? HAPPY.

For anyone worried about obenauf'ing their plaza wingtips from leathersoul, don't be. Here's a pair of treated Wolverine 1000 mile rust, laceless treated wingtip, laced virgin wingtip, then virgin cigar shell. As I said previously I was a little disappointed the wingtip wasn't a richer brown like the site photos and am trying to darken them more towards the cigar brown. Hopefully as they age they will darken with further treatments.
Oh and there's a contradiction going on in the width if it's stamped an E but measured at 4.25. edit: Photoshopping the sole photo to 12 3/16th inches makes the width 4.264 inches wide, so their measurements are probably pretty close. The shoe is slightly off axis in the photo though. I'd have to stage my boot flush and then as this one is pictured to get a percentage of error, if it's even 5% then the boot rapidly becomes a D at 4.477 inches. Ask the seller to...
