im probably the laziest person on this board, so I'm not much help here.. I just grab whichever brush is at the top of my brush trunk storage thing, brush a bit off the shoe all over, than hit some VSC all over. buff with some cheap amazon microfiber and then throw them back on the shelf

 

quite sad really, but I've become kinda jaded on excessive shoe care it seems

that is correct, except that Bryan was going to vest in the partnership and own the BH location, but they didn't see eye to eye on terms and things rapidly went south from there.  disagreement was related primarily to lease guaranty issues, but spiraled out of control and cost their friendship.

Interesting info, didn't know about that other than their falling out. Wish Bryan was still there learned a lot about shoes through him

Thanks for the tip, I might get those. They have my size, and while I'm not crazy about the crepe sole $445 really is a good price.

Of all the color 8, ravello and cigar Aldens I have, I love wearing the black shell ptb 9901. This is a fantastic shoe and has a super lustrous look, fits nicely compared to other Barrie lasted shoes and looks very distinguished.
Thanks to my friend RTP whose possession of this shoe inspired me. Some pics wearing today.

I prefer these over the BB version. The lack of metal eyelets and being pure bred Alden sway me to the 9901. Though some may go for the BB version citing sleek last I like the Barrie on the ptb.
