palace music - "new partner" also looking forward to hearing the new mount eerie soon.
thought i was solid enough on shoe care, but these scotch grain chukkas (c&j brecons) are proving a little tricky. i essentially treat them as a wet weather shoe, and it shows. all i've ever done is some reno and cream polish on them. I let them rest between wears and use trees. some issues: some lighter colored residue showing in creases and crevices between the grain (first pic). can't tell if the leather is just really dry or if i used too much reno last...
eyeballing the buttero ontano side-zip. having a hard time deciding if it's a little too artisinal SWD footwear for my tastes. i mostly wear jeans + ocbd (dadwear). would these be out of place? i've caught the side-zip bug after getting some luchesse side-zips.
Me too. Works great as a solo traveler. Too heavy to lug when traveling with the family though. Just bought some generic samsonite roller luggage at Ross for $100 for my checked luggage now. Carry on is a Master-piece potential backpack I got from NMWA.
Frank Leder pants from NMWA. Description says wider leg shape but measurements are limited.

this is really interesting to read, thanks for taking the time to clip out the discussion. i know personally, my interest in alden has dropped off sharply. some due to my evolving tastes but some due to alden. i didn't really want to post anything because guys in this thread have great experiences, but i'd like to vent a little bit.

don't want to undercut your GMTO, but if it falls through i'm probably going to be listing a pair soon from the last run (size UK 8E). Lightly worn but still in great shape.
someone sent a message saying they would do the BIN price on my listing if I could wait until the 24th (about a week after the listing ends) for payment. seems ok, guy has decent feedback, but am i missing some weird scam i'm not smart enough to recognize? obviously i won't ship until i get paid.
edit: moved, forgot there was an ebay thread
