For years, I thought I developed that wear pattern due to my gait. It wasn't until I learned of the Mac [break-in] method that I understood how it happens. With that said, I rarely bother to break in the double leather soles on carpet to avoid the toe wear. I'm far too impatient. I do follow his shoe care steps.
They are shoes...post #62733 of 12241610/11/13 at 1:46pmpost #62734 of 12241610/11/13 at 1:53pmpost #62735 of 12241610/11/13 at 1:58pm
I've come to the conclusion that presentation is important. I've got these shoes and they've never looked this good on me. I don't know if it's the whole 'godfather' thing that you've got going on or something else, but you make these look much better than I ever have. Very nicely done.post #62736 of 12241610/11/13 at 2:17pmpost #62737 of 12241610/11/13 at 3:08pmpost #62738 of 12241610/11/13 at 3:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by Beatlegeuse
Maiden voyage of the J Crew PCT boots I ordered back in August. These just randomly showed up yesterday, I checked the tracking online and it looks like they are still sitting in Greensboro, NC. They must have been shipped back to J Crew and then re-sent to me, because the label had my new address printed on it.
Gorgeous! I'll be getting mine in December and I can't wait! I dropped by a local mens boutique today to confirm I was a 9 on the Barrie and actually fell in love with the Aberdeen last. It's a shame these boots weren't made on it! Do you see yourself wearing these boots with wool trousers, or just denim/chinos?post #62739 of 12241610/11/13 at 3:50pmQuote:
The Alden Man's Creed
These are my chukkas. There are many like them, but these are mine.
My chukkas are my best friend. They are my life. I must master them as I must master my life.
My chukkas, without me, are useless. Without my chukkas, I am useless. I must wear my chukkas true. I must walk straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must kick him before he kicks me. I will...
My chukkas and I know that what counts in this life is not the miles we walk, the size of our gait, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the kicks that count. We will kick...
My chukkas are human, even as I, because they are my life. Thus, I will care for them as a brother. I will learn their weaknesses, their strengths, their parts, their threads, their laces and their soles. Because they are my soul. I will keep my chukkas clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God, I swear this creed. My chukkas and I are the defenders of my feet. We are the masters of our streets, valleys and streams. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!post #62740 of 12241610/11/13 at 4:10pmQuote:Originally Posted by losrockets

I'll definitely wear these with dress trousers in the winter. These will look great with a pair of tweed trousers with nice beefy cuffs.post #62741 of 12241610/11/13 at 4:13pmpost #62742 of 12241610/11/13 at 4:49pmpost #62743 of 12241610/11/13 at 4:59pmpost #62744 of 12241610/11/13 at 5:15pmpost #62745 of 12241610/11/13 at 8:18pm
