How do you guys with really large collections deal with this? Are you just ok wearing things once a month or less? Maybe I need to take a hard look at sizing down my collection

 

 

 

 

I'm having a hard time rotating 10 right now…. and still have a half dozen on the wish list…Can't imagine 2 dozen! (well can imagine buying, but not how I would actually wear them)

There are some well priced cigar shell loafers, a lhs and tassel, in 9D on eBay right now. BNIB. Surprised they are still around.

Those are amazing. Can you expand a bit on your polishing process? Try as I might, it's a toss up if my shoes even look better after I polish them...

great looking tankers. you can always cheat the rotation and wear these twice as much.

bulls fan? 90s? hated the knicks?

yes sir. my alden addiction is the 3 reincarnation of my 90s nike air jordans addiction.

Nice Alpines. I just got my first pair of AG's, the AG NST from Citi. Will probably wear them next next Tuesday for Tanker Tuesday.
Nice Epaulet Indy Boots Saz!
Bummer about the rain, but way to take it on!
What part of SoCal are you visiting? I believe UnionMade has two locations in the LA basin.
Nice 2210! Great shoes!
Great shoes and glad that they took good care of you today! But even better pic!!!
Great Tankers Breck. Way to take them out and enjoy them!
Looking good Ben and yes that is super heavy denim. Don't see me sporting that much weight in SoCal.
Great and classic Cigar PTB! Enjoy the Uv!
I approve! Keep it up!
Just wear when you want and not worry about it. ;-)
Be careful you don't want to scuff them. I need to go pick mine up from the cobbler today.

@mdubs Thanks! I was requesting a LS dream list and I never tried a pair of shoes on plaza. And I have checked out your blog quite a bit. It came together really well. Congratulations!

 

@rydenfan Appreciate the confirmation, sir!

@mdubs, you had mentioned a new blog post outlining how you get shell rolls and creases out of your shoes. When can we expect that? I just acquired a pair of shoes that require your treatment!

HC, planning to do it on Friday. I am going to go in on a day off and take the normal table photos of each step. Hopefully nothing comes up between now and then. May also finally do my LWB party photo so that I can finally get the LWBs into the rotation!

I'm hoping you can manage to take a quick video of the brushing, too. I know this sounds insane but I always feel like I can't firmly brush over any seam because I'd be "bending" the sewn leather away from the shoe.
