Shoe Porn - Amateur Soft Core

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I figured I should finally share a portion of my own personal collection. As you will see, it is a work in progress. I confess to once being that most greivous of sinners - one who wore Kenneth Cole. Over the past 2 years, I have purged and rebuilt my collection of footwear and raised the quality. Below is approximately half of the collection that is currently in regular rotation. Please comment, as you will.



Front row: AE Ritz, C&J Dartmouth, RLPL MacKay, C&J Weymouth, Polo (C&J) Chawner, Polo (C&J) Tellman.
Second row: AE Benton, Church's Westbury, AE Byron, Polo (C&J) Marlow (Dalton), AE Benton, Polo (C&J?) Brogued Captoe (my first Polo benchmade's - 4-5 years ago), Grenson Saddle Balmoral (Bennie's).
Back Row: AE Hinsdale (just back from it's 2nd recrafting), AE Fairgate, Moreschi Brogued Captoe, AE Stuart Chukka, Polo (C&J) McCallum Chukka (Cordovan), AE Stuart Chukka, AE Stanford Chukka.

Beyond that you'll note evidence of some of my non-satorial obsessions: namely wine, antique american furniture, silver and crystal.

this is just a shot in the dark, but you might try taking "porn" out of the filename...you never know.

try not using the word "porn" in your file name.... that might trigger a block.

edit: looks like nerdykarim got there before me....

One of my favorites too. Ben Silver carries them in a dark brown, keep hoping they'll be on sale at some point.

Oh Lord... you would ask the tough questions. There are just over 30 cases in the collection (389 bottles at last count). Most are reds, primarily Napa Cabs, Zins, Pinots and Merlots from Niebaum-Coppola (now Rubicon Estate), Markham, Cakebread and Sterling. Vintages range from 1980 - 2003. Wine is by far the longest running of my obsessions - I consume approximately 150 bottles a year and add 240, so it continues to grow.

These are my Polo Tellmans after a 2 hour elbow grease job on them:

Nice shoes!

Particularly like the Mackays - I will get a pair someday...

Are you sure the 3-eyelet derbies at the front are Aintrees? They look more like Dartmouths to me.

Tom, well stocked on shoes and wine. That collection of shoes gets any bigger, you will need a cellar for those also
