If I didn't wear it when it rains, it would severely cut down the number of day I'd wear shell.
Hope you got some good weather while you were here. Weather has really sucked the past couple weeks.

overshoes solve this matter

I find that overshoes look silly though. If Im going to work and its rainy I just carry my shell in a bag and change once I'm inside. If we're talking going out and it's raining (kind of impossible to avoid in Portland) I just don't wear shell. I feel like a goof when wearing overshoes.

We got fantastic weather. It was in the high 60's, low 70's while we were there. Got chance to watch the Angels beat the Mariners (we are big Angels fans) while we were up there too. Best stop for food was certainly Matt's in the Market. Also had a chance to stop by JGilbert. Yenni is great. The rest of their staff is really kind and helpful as well. Although there were no Alden offerings I was interested in, my wife and I each picked up some Lucchese boots.

Alden "Milkshake" Suede Indy Boot, made exclusively for Epaulet.  Just arrived today.  Pics came out a bit whiter that the actual color, which is more gray/taupe, similar tones to the lace colors.  

 

Gorgeous boot.  I'm gonna kill the first person to accidentally kick, bump, step on, swipe, splash, brush, nick, tap, or even breathe on my foot.

European bar lace

Works well if the quarters close completely or come pretty close together.

Took a quick visit to Alden SF today at lunchtime.  Had the cigar indy on Barrie in my size.  Tried it on.  Perfection.  Would have gotten it if I didn't just get another shell in cigar recently.  Just as FYI.  Was definitely on Barrie last.

What are they getting for those? Last time I checked, about 6 months ago, it was like $710. + tax.

These boots get marks on them pretty easily, man. I just cleaned mine up (mine are the leffot version with crepe soles) with some Saphir suede cleaner and a suede eraser. They look nice now, so it was no real issue, but be prepared to clean up your shoes pretty regularly

^ Thanks for the tip.  Did you pre-treat your boots out of the box w/ spray or some other treatment?  (Bought some AE Suede Protector spray, but not sure if it will change the color of the shoe)
