Nice shortwing bluchers NAMOR. The different shadings in the sunlight really look cool.

I think that may just be reflective of the market for white suede shoes. biggrin.gif

Not exactly a staple people are willing to pay top (eBay) price for.

I see hella scuffs. Deer bone works wonders on those.

It's an endless war, this war on scuffs. You take out one scuff, but 2 pop up as soon as you turn your foot into a sidewalk. And then, during rush hour, people run all over your hard work. They don't care that you spent all last night boning your shoes, your forearm tired, the resolve tested from continuous stimulating applied to a frangible surface. nO! I won't do it, I won't kill another needless night of life. I won't do it I tell you (sniffle, cry, sob)

^ I'm guessing he can get rid of 98% of that with a wet cloth and some brushing.

Agreed - if we were talking shell from Alden. Shell from C&J can be tricky when it comes to brushing (sometimes brushing makes it look worse). Because of the dryness factor, I brush my C&J shell less than my Alden shell - and Carmina shell lesser still.

What's up with that? I just noticed that Carmina shell is really dry too, and both Carmina and Alden shell seem to be pretty prone to drying to the point where you can actually see the pinprick pore holes (at least that's what I think they are) in them.

I'm late to the party, but based on your descriptions of the fit on AE shoes you have, you will want a 7.5 or 8 in Lindrick.  If you have a high instep, the 7.5 might be too tight.

I've been beating mine to hell this winter.  Basically, they get worn once to twice a week, sometimes to work, and definitely on the weekends.  Out in the snow and slush every time.  They are breaking in very nicely for me.  Here are mine today.

Edit: Speaking of Gianni's, I think I need to jump on that bandwagon based on pictures I've seen on this thread. I'm sure I'm the 1000th person asking this question, but how's the fit as compared to Lindricks? What would be considered a "good deal" for a new pair?

 

It depends on what you are looking for.  I got the same size in Giannis and Lindricks, wear the Giannis with thicker socks and they're great.  If I were going to wear thinner dress-type socks, I would need to go down 1/2 from Lindrick.

There's a bada-bing joke in there somewhere.
