Yes. Call and ask for Yenni. She is great to work with.

They are a great place, purchase with confidence.

great suggestion, and it got me thinking...
Does anyone have experience using a darker color saphir cream on whiskey?

I have never done that, but I have used Saphir's neutral shell cordovan cream on whiskey, as well as Saphir Reno on whiskey. The neutral shell cordovan cream will slightly darken the whiskey particularly if applied liberally. All in all I prefer to use Reno on my Whiskeys.

Cigar LHS on Shoemart is $484 right now. Must be an error.

You have chukkas in #4? patch[1].gif If not, then you don't have the SF officially sanctioned rainbow.

Error or not, this is the deal of the year.

thoughts?



not sure anyone was interested in knowing, but i figured out that these are the ALDEN TANKER OX
they were made for retailers in JAPAN it seems
BARRIE last

being on the barrie they are too big for me, so I will have to pass them off to someone else, I'm afraid.

I have a question for you fine chaps. Anyone with a pair of cotton lined 405s experience an increasing squeakiness in the boot uppers? It has almost gotten to the point of not wearing them because of the loudness especially going down steps. They are in great shape so that can't be the issue. I have never owned the leather lined version so I didn't know if this was common throughout. Any tips for fixing?

Also, I know I have seen it here, but can someone point me to advice on stitching this darn tongue in place?

bought the lhs in 9d. thanks for the tip

Those of you who have used venetian shoe cream, on your whiskey and/or ravello, did you find that it darked the color? I use it often on my CXL and dark shell but i'm worried about using it on ravello and whiskey and changing the color.

For example, I get the impression you - even if by the slightest of margins - would favor the ravello LWB over the cigar LWB. I personally would switch that order, and the margin, for that model, would be more than slight. nod[1].gif Having said all of that, I have an equal number of models in each color.
But of course there is no right or wrong, just personal preferences ...
A good weekend to you, fine sir.

nephew,
the best to you
have a good weekend

nephew,
my understanding is that the rainbow is cigar, ravello and whiskey. i have not come across a #4 chukkas. i have seen mahogany chukkas. even if mahogany and #4 are the same, your definition of the rainbow would be nearly impossible to achieve. in my book, he has met the standard

I don't have to wear suits anymore.  Jeans, chino's blazers ...Thoughts cousins?

Either cigar or ravello would work. Honestly just get the first one that is available in your size.

I am wearing cigar chukkas today.
