I've been busy most of this week packing up the house. Just caught up on a bunch of pages but probably missed quite a few as well.

 

Got most of my shoes packed up but leaving out a few of my Dovers to use over the next 4 months or so.

You have to go all the way through the checkout process. I couldn't pull the trigger. You're welcome 8D'ers.

I created an account, went through the check out process, put it in the promotion code box, clicked apply, and nothing changes. I've been hoping for some grant lasted cordovan cap toe boots for a while.

[edit]

It turns out it only applies to items already on sale. That explains it. Thanks anyway!

Thank goodness a 7.5 isn't available or I would have had to pull the trigger at that price. Trubalance would not be my first choice of last though. The BB unlined version looks so much better imo, on what I think is the Barrie.

No way to say. It depends on if Alden has irregulars for that model. It's a craps shoot.

I recently purchased a pair of Alden natural CXL Bluchers - they are gorgeous.  I'm planning to use the neutral venetian cream.  

 

However, as they age I'd like to nudge them into the direction of reddish brown rather than the greenish-brown tones/patina the leather often takes on.  Is it okay to use a bit of, say, burgundy/no 8. shell cream on this leather?  Not directly at full strength but mixing in a bit with the venetian cream?

 

Would that work or is that just absolutely insanely stupid?  LOL  :)

I clicked through there as soon as I got the email from Haberdash but nothing for 8.5D there.

why use shell creme? there are plenty of calf polishes available if you want to play with the color a bit
