Ha! One of my chief enablers is a fellow saxophonist. He's also a longer-standing member of SF than I, so I won't out him.
But it is true that the frugal struggling artist of my yesteryears had to be broken into the fine footwear addiction gently, and in tiered phases. At first I would only go for 2nd quality clearance models and struck gold at Century 21. Now it's Vass MTOs and Alden preorders. FML. Sometimes I still get a little disgusted with myself when I remember how hard I had to struggle for so long, as a full priced pair of shells would have covered a full month's rent and expenses back then.
But times change. I imagine I'll be done with footwear soon, once it's time to start saving for something more important (like a piano)

Happy Walnut Wednesday, gents!
There was a recent discussion about the fit of these. Both of my First Aves are the same size as my 5-last shoes. 9D in these boots fit great; 9D in 65 is a little snug. With the 201, too much volume is my issue - but these seem to be doing alright (about 4-5 wears in on these walnuts, about 10 on the brown grain version).post #2364 of 193273/23/16 at 8:53ampost #2365 of 193273/23/16 at 8:54amQuote:
Gotta disagree here.
Walnut shell looks like bourbon calf.
Natural shell looks like walnut calf.
I'm not a big fan of either bourbon calf or, by extension, walnut shell.post #2366 of 193273/23/16 at 9:04ampost #2367 of 193273/23/16 at 9:09ampost #2368 of 193273/23/16 at 9:25ampost #2369 of 193273/23/16 at 9:46ampost #2370 of 193273/23/16 at 10:04am
