I have some 12B Barrie and 12.5C Leydon I'll probably need to unload at some point.

Will be heading into B&M tomorrow to check out what they have in-stock + pick up some leather defender. Extremely happy with TSM 2nds, had been scoping the list for a while and finally found something that made me pull the trigger.

Welcome @idonotmatch to the posting community! Those new Color 8 wingtip boots are looking very good with their antique edges and pair nicely with your Chinos. Enjoy your first pair of Shell Cordovan, hope that you had a good visit with Yenni today. I have had the pleasure of visiting her twice and she is quite a pleasant lady.

Nice! I know reverse chamois is an oily leather. But in this picture are the boots wet or is that simply the oil?

It's the oil. The difference in tone seems to be a bit exaggerated in the photo. Reverse Chamois is quickly becoming my second favorite shoe material behind Shell.

Circle 7 http://circle7online.com/collections/alden/products/alden-3902hc  Never heard of them, but as I said, it was a trade.

 

Next on the list will be a wingtip pair...holding out for someone to make a GREEN reverse chamois pair like Leffot had earlier this year.

My last pair of Alden's arrived yesterday and I am quite impressed with the way they turned out. Only a few minor cosmetic blems here and there...but for the most part very well done compared to the others I've owned. I love the richness of the color 8 dye; the shade of dark burgundy is deep and uniform throughout the boots. Their appearance in direct sunlight vs. indirect really adds to their character. I attempted to show that in one of the pictures above...but didn't have the patience to wait for the sunlight to cooperate.

These are keepers. Would highly recommend the grant lasted wingtip boot from Yenni.

Very nice looking boots! Those are looking good and a pretty cool style for the material.

Glad to hear that you are happy with your new Boots MrV. They look good and you did a good job capturing the range of colors that they can exhibit.

I would guess that he either had a tripod or a cohort in crime.
