PAS a local clothier has the full strap loafer available in what the salesman described as a carmel color over the phone. Not sure if Whiskey or Ravello, Aberdeen last and he said had quite a few, unfortunately not in 11.post #52117 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:14pmpost #52118 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:15pmQuote:
So, why when I bought the alden whiskey ptb recently from FRANSBONE ,I found a paper for maintaining inside from ALDEN, which recommends
ALDEN color 8 Paste wax for the above pair?
Is it wrong???!!!!post #52119 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:20pmQuote:
I believe that is the standard "how to care for cordovan" brochure that is included with all cordovan shoes... Yes, ignore the color recommendation in that brochurepost #52120 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:27pmQuote:
Yes, it is. Simply look at the color of your shoe and the color of that wax and I am pretty sure you would never want to put that on your shoe.post #52121 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:39pmpost #52122 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:41pmpost #52123 of 1224165/30/13 at 2:41pmQuote:Originally Posted by 100 yrsQuote:

We were just in LAS a couple weeks ago.
105F was quite the contrast.
I have good associations between LAS and cordovan.
I had just landed in LAS when I got an email from Tom about #4 PTBs.
I forget where we were staying but I ordered cigar PTBs while I was there a couple years ago..
I was sitting by the Cosmo pool browsing on my phone when I saw #4 captoes at TSM last fall.post #52124 of 1224165/30/13 at 3:05pmQuote:
I was there today. They have whiskey LWB in 9.5, 10 and 11 (he might have mentioned other sizes but I cut him off after that). They have a cigar PTB in 7.5, Whiskey LHS, Cigar NST. Not sure on the sizes of the last two. I would call again, they were very helpful the last time I called.post #52125 of 1224165/30/13 at 3:29pmQuote:RTP, I'm really digging your tassels. A Great Gatsby like stylish hot weather combo. Wear the heck out of them. Uncle Mac please forgive me, but I believe I'm starting to think that there is a pair of tasseled 563 loafers in my future.
