Congrats! They look awesome. I think a #8 WT boot has to be my next pick up. They really look great with the olive pants. Nice work!

Whiskey LWBs arrived yesterday...

 

 


I love the way untouched blouchers have the "bloucher flaps" sticking straight up and the tongue perfectly flat.  Even better is the smell of shell that immediately escapes when you open the box.  Couldn't be happier with them.

 

Here is a comparison pick of a sun-tanned whiskey wingtip after about 50 hours of exposure to intense, summertime sunlight.


BN out of the Box...

Update-Mine too said style not eligible for discount but it applied it anyway.  Maybe a coupon glitch but it appears to have been honored.

Yep, my camel PT boot shipped as well. Hope it has no defect and hasn't been tried on!

The family has grown quickly since Dec. thats for sure. 4 currently, two due this week. Combined with the current wait lists I'm done for the year other than 2nds or deep discounts (damn impulses) really need some suede. I'e got a focus on what I want and not just going for quantity. Ended up canceling my Jcrew shell Indy even though it was a good deal because of that.

I felt pretty strongly on my commitment to no more AE's, but an MTO got classified as a 2nd for minor problems so I might end up with that one. I almost talked myself out of it though. And I have a 20% off standing offer so I might get one more AE shell at some point in the future. The Alden difference is quite large though.

 

I agree you should get some suede, especially when summer is coming! Alden's suede is fantastic!

This is the one that Alden makes for BB.  Their website describes it as brown suede, but it is a little lighter than chocolate and slightly darker than snuff (closer to snuff).  I highly recommend them.

 

Good looking dover, RTP!

Ha. Well today it was a steering wheel for the tow rig. 04 Ram 2500. The original leather wheel is still together just very worn and smooth (481k miles) so was seeing what an oem replacement was. Kinda shocked it was $90 shipped. Wasn't sure what I'd be getting but sure enough it was the real deal. Also been getting wheel bearings and joints and various wear items.

Also it's been Mini parts since mine ate an exhaust valve somewhat recently. 09 at 105k.

The project is an 88 E30 though. It's slowed since getting married in October but poised to get done when we move into our house next month.

No doubt. Hoping some dovers and LHS make the next 2nds list. Need a discount given the shell acquisitions lately and scheduled.

Saddles!





Super excited about these. I love the edgy nature of this saddle being a blucher and perf-less. Thanks to Alden of SanDiego who happened to get a rare 11D in from the usual runs of 10.5s.

We need to get a retailer on a #4 makeup.

With flash.

If I was Mike's size I would be on the streets. I'd have some fine looking shoes.. but I would definitely be kicked out!

They look like #4 and black shell. I believe Leathersoul had that run a few years ago.

They are indeed the Color #4 and Black Shell Cordovan Saddles made by LeatherSoul several moons ago.

Ha! Even if one person wanted all of my shoes for sale, I wouldn't sell them all to one person. I am a fan of being fair and equitable...
