With the potential for rain for the rest of the week here, it is definitely like prohibition. :(

Those do look pretty sharp... I do have a preference for the 990 PTBs over the dovers though. Leffot may do their crepe sole version of the PTBs with antique welt in addition to the dovers at some point, but I think the crepe soles are a bit ugly. I also emailed Bureau and it doesn't seem like they're doing another order of the PTBs with antique welt.

 

Since color 8 990s are so common and you see them discounted now and then and often used in good condition as well... does it seem reasonable to try to pick up a discounted/used pair and get just get B. Nelson recraft them with lighter welts and edges? Have others here done that before? Any problems?

These guys introduced an interesting predicament that I have never thought of or had to deal with before... What color belt to wear with them!?! I ended up going with Color #8 belt, as I thought it fit in better with my purple tie and socks theme, but what would ya'll wear with them, or is it a toss up?

Mike,

 

thoughts on this shoe now that you have had it a while?  I am thinking of getting some saddles and these are still available at DC...

 

Thanks in advance

What's most awesome about these boots is that I've seen Uncle Mac wear them for the past 4 years and they still look like they're practically brand new. Exemplary shoe care! Gorgeous boots Uncle.

That's because they are, if "new" is determined by number of wears. biggrin.gif
