@Kahuna75 : Not sure about doing it automatically, but if you switch to source view, you can drag the entire

Mac, those are some awesome Tankers. Happy Tanker Tuesday! :-)

 

Shiny, terrific PTBs. I like the exposed eyelets, gives it some pizzazz...

 

Mr.K, always hard to go wrong with LWBs. When did you get those? What material are those made of, sort of looks like it is calf-skin, but I can not tell for sure.

 

inn8, those are some terrific boots. Those look like they are the 4060HC's from Alden DC. I have a pair, and they are absolutely marvelous boots. Enjoy them very much and congrats on getting a decent price...

It's gone through a lot of changes since this was taken (early spring 2013?) but size-wise it's roughly the same.

Gentlemen, terrific family photos! Mr. Kwhite, no worries on the photo, it is really hard to get a family photo to be particularly stylish unless you have Mr. DV's lawn or RTP's awesome stone stairs... I am with Zippy, I do not plan to take another family photo again unless I can parse my collection down significantly. It was far and away too much work to assemble...

I got them for 400, seems like a solid deal on a pair on maintained sc. They are from j gilbert footwear? Guy said he used the mac method to maintain them but not sure what that is.

Oh wow, it was hard for me to tell the difference between the Plaza and Grant last from that angle. The Plaza Lasted version (typical one JGil runs) is amazing. That is a great purchase. I am certain that you will love them.

 

Mac method = brush and buff only, minimal to no product.

How do you even watch TV like that?

 

I'm sure those shoes drew attention away from the TV plenty of times.

These are calf-skin. I think they are @4 years old now.

Oh nice! I was really hoping to get some second hands, but that is very tempting. Thanks for the heads up.

Everyone could donate their uneaten single shoes to a sizing library.
