Thanks, if I weren't already on the B+M color 8 wingtip boot on Grant last, I would consider those.

No problem. Really excited to see a picture of that makeup. I'm on the list for the next round of the B&M boot on grant.

Just amazing. You've got a great color 4 collection. Hell I didn't even know those existed. I can only imagine how hard they were to find and in that great of condition. I can only hope to be so lucky one day.

Wore my King Naval boots all over Tuscany and didn't have the heart to wipe them until we got back.

Thanks for the photos.

 

Thanks!  The photos on IG of your trip were an inspiration.  One could almost vicariously tour Italy through your IG posts alone.

That sounds delicious.  I ate fresh anchovies a couple of times.  Nothing like the canned ones.

My wife indulges me but my sister and brother-in-law were thankful that I insisted we visit Ravello.

She should thank you. Probably the nicest place on the Amalfi coast.

I agree about Ravello.  I'd be happy to take an apartment and live there for six months.  Plus, it's got its name going for it.

Anyone have the calfskin WT boot that can show me how it ages at the ankles?

 

I'm look at my CXL Indys and I'm fine with what I'm seeing there, but wondering what other leather does on calfskin WT boots.  Seems like shell might yield a more desireable wear pattern there...

I thought that was on commando. Either way, I found an 8E in that boot and the seller wanted $1,200 USD + shipping. Crazy.

Cigar is decent new-ish fairly dark Cigar... not super-dark/nearly black but also not the very brown/olive Cigar of the past.

 

Ideas?

 

 

 

 

A few of these look like my list of excuses I once had for school work.

 

I have an AE Wide Basic Dress belt in Chili (the old Chili) that actually matches my Whiskey quite well, believe it or not. For cigar, unfortunately the AE Dark Brown wide basic isn't quite right. Cigar is tougher, but for now I just go with it.

I don't apply ALD at all to my shells.

Great choices! The Ravello WT boot looks great. The new welt is a big improvement over the previous one you had on that pair.

A risky game, but one I play on occasion. Even more risky when there's a third pedal involved...

I am in on the same order. I recently received my #8 shortwings that were pre-ordered at the same time as the Pitt Boots so I asked if they had any news about the Pitt Boot order and was told that they have indeed finally been confirmed and are supposedly in production. They hope to have them ready for delivery sometime in the December 2015 to February 2016 time frame. Fingers are crossed.
