2014
Jcrew Color 8 Cap toe Boot
TSM Whiskey LWB
BB Color 8 Perforated Cap Toe Bal
TSM Seconds Black Straight tip Bal
BB Color 8 Wingtip Bal

2015 hopefully going to cut back a bit. I may jump on a ravello or cigar LBW if available. I think I'm done with black and color 8 shell for now. Going to focus on getting some more exotics. The goal is to stay away from boots since they are less practical (can't wear them into the office). We'll see what happens. I think I'd also jump on a foul weather boot at seconds prices.

Edited to add a bit of detail.

Mike, without any second thoughts, you are leading this thread. Wow.

Thanks my friends. I do not consider this to be a competition. I just got on a ton of lists and had more come through than I expected. The second week of June was very exciting and expensive. I have also been converting my whole collection of 10Ds to 10.5Bs, many of those were 1-for-1 conversions.

Not as ridiculous as the Ravello Daytrippers in 10E for $1,600 (@Alcibiades this isn't your auction, is it?), but still over-the-top...

 

Whiskey LWBs for $1,100

2014

Ravello LWB (sold)
Whiskey LWB (sold)
BB #8 tassel Classic shoe replacement
#8 NST Boot Aberdeen last 4030
BB Unlined #8 Penny as a back-up to my normal pair that gets a ton of wear
Whiskey Chukka
Cigar Chukka
#8 LWB
C&J Unlined Cigar Penny Harvard

Technically I no longer work as of this year, so I peeled off a bunch of PTB's and LWB's but did keep King LWB.

2015
Ravello NST Boot 4030
Backup pair of Whiskey LHS as this get mucho wear here in the desert.
Possibly a Ravello LHS but honestly Whiskey darkens over time to a Ravello color and Ravello get more brown.

The years seem to blend as you get older so I think in 2014 I purchased:

Tobacco Chamois Ranger Mocc (Need Supply)
C&J Islay
Tobacco Chamois Tanker Boot (Leffot via TSM seconds)

I also sold a pair of Cigar Indy's.

In 2015, I will probably sell my TSM second Snuff Dover unlined PTB. There's nothing really on my wish list but I'm always on the lookout for a Cigar LWB, a chocolate suede boot or chukka and maybe a black cordovan shoe.

Happy New Year!

2015 Lists
- Snuff Suede WT boot

That's a dangerous list, I wouldn't let the ladies see that.
