With blue suede unlined chukkas. They probably fulfil the same mission but that could be said of many shoes I have.

Summer is on the horizon and the blue suede is looking nice. Very nice purchase from Leffot & and I appreciate you sharing. Enjoy wearing them and as always wear them in health.

I'd like to ask some thoughts about this: wearing a shell cordovan boot, like an Indy, without regard of the luxury price tag, and not treating it like a baby, but letting it get wet, scratched, etc., in the same way you'd wear a pair of leather work boots. This should allow for a different character as they wear.

It feels like I read this once a month.. They are your shoes, do whatever suits you. If you visit the sufu shoe/boots thread regular/harsh treatment is their favored aging method for cordovan & they look pretty much the same as SF "babied" shoes as soon as they are polished (+some scuffs).

+1 Creasing always looks so minimal, which is crazy since I know a some of Mac's shoes are 30+ years old.

Zippy - I know this has been asked a million times, but who sells those navy suede chukkas? Was it just Tassels or was there another place that sold something similar? I really need a pair of blue suede something.

Anyone interested in the Alden x UNIONMADE Loden Green 'Muir Boots', size 9D? I may be selling mine. Worn about 5 times.

PM me.

those were awesome. why are you selling them? and why do you put yourself through this constant hassle. On an unrelated note, when are the EG's going on sale?

I spaced and had to check my old emails. They were from Epaulet in Spring 2010.
