If you are referring to the recent spate of boots on the Modified last, I concur. I had a pair of Modified PTB a while back and while they fit me better and were more comfortable than any other dress shoes I've ever owned, every time I looked down at my feet they just looked off to me.
I received my FF charcoal corduroy sportcoat yesterday and the fabric is awesome - so soft, thick, and beautiful. I still wonder why it was marketed as charcoal though as it has much more of a purple hue to it than a grey or silver (I knew that when I ordered it though so I wasn't shocked when I opened the box). It's already off at the tailors getting the sleeves taken up a notch and I should have it back at the end of the week.
My pace always slows down considerably in the winter. I think I consumed so much sugar on a daily basis that my blood has turned into molasses and it just doesn't like to flow when the temps dip below freezing.
Sprints!
It was -2º with the windchill here this morning. I have no scientific proof to back this up but the scarf seems to help trap a bit of warm air between it and my mouth/nose so I'm not constantly breathing in the frozen air. That combined with the fact that I don't like those caps with the built in masks make it look like I'm extra bundled up. In reality, I could have taken the knit cap off after a few miles but I didn't feel like messing around with my headlamp while it was...
It was 12º this morning. I don't recall it being this cold this early in a long time. I still managed to get in a 12 mile run (a mile for each degree?) and only had to stop to scrape the frost and ice off of my scarf twice.
Very nice looking. Are those lined or unlined?
6.8 miles this afternoon as the snow flurries were coming down but it wasn't uncomfortably cold t all.
So far on the block is a Cigar LWB (sold already), Cigar NST, suede navy SWB, suede navy Indy, black shell chukka, Kudu LWB, Natural CXL Self Edge x LeatherSoul Conservation Boot, a Carmina split toe, and a Tricker's 2-tone LWB. I'm still considering posting up a couple pair of Rancourt and another pair of Tricker's, and a few more Alden (the tan calf Epaulet Alt Wien) possibly reverse chamois Indy and/or chukka, kid suede tassel, and one of either the #8 Naval Boot, #8...
I started doing some massive closet cleaning and posted up a bunch of shoes in the sales forums but now the hard part begins: What to replace them all with?
