I use two different brushes.
One brush in the office and one brush at home. It makes no difference to me if the shoes/boots I am wearing are brown, black, blue, suede, etc.
I have been doing this for years with no adverse effects.
If that is the same rubber sole as the "brick" sole, I have a pair of Indy boots and a LWB on them and they are very comfortable but have surprisingly bad traction, especially compared to any other rubber type of sole or the crepe sole. But again, they are very comfortable.
I'd love to see some fit pics with the caramel duck sportcoat (I tried using the search function but there are just too many hits for most of the words and the ones specifically for the sportcoat didn't have many pictures).
I finally got one recently and would love to see what other SF members have worn it with.
Fueco - your 63 miles are still damn impressive.
I put in 4.6 miles this morning. I thought the temps were supposed to be close to 20º but we were back down in the single digits when I stepped out. I cannot recall the last time I saw another runner in the predawn hours.
I cannot speak for his but you can get them in Slim Fit or original fit (I know O'Connell's stocks the slim fits) and there is a huge difference between the two, especially in the extra material around the arms and the size of the armholes.
Broke out the alpine grain longwings with the red brick sole for casual Friday today. I don't think I've ever worn them in the fall or winter when the sidewalks and roads are slick. I was surprised at how slippery these things are out there!
Oh well. Just another reason to stay inside the office today.
In other news, according to my wife and FedEx the LHS that I ordered from TSM on Wednesday afternoon have already arrive at my house. That was much faster than I was...
