Another question, what is the right polish/was/paste/cream to use for a colour 8 Cordovan Shell? I always wondered if you were to polish shoes with perforated patterns doesn't the wax/polish get into the holes? How do you get it out afterwards? Is there a right way to do it?

 1: long wing, who else does it better?

 2: alden color 8 cordovan paste wax. Works fine with broguing - use an applicator brush.

Ah, gotcha. Sounds like good advice.

I'm very sorry Horsehide - I only have chukkas in whiskey, ravello, cigar, color 8, and black. I do not have the chukka in color 4 (only the ptb in color 4). If by your definition I don't have the shell rainbow in chukkas, I am fine with that. I will lose no sleep over it.

AFAIK, that's the rainbow. Color 4 would be the unicorn.

Agreed -- sevenfoldtieguy has the chukka rainbow. He even has #4 on a PTB to boot!

Am I reading 10 above correctly? That TSM will have #4 captoe boots coming in the future? That would be unbelievable!!

TheShoeMart has Cigar LHS @ $484 in some sizes still.  My size is of course is now gone, but they do have 9.5D - 11.5D and 13D.  Go kopp now!

I too am a J Walker fan.  Now this Booker's I've not tried.  Single malt?  Can you expand?  I seek made in USA companies products whenever possible.  I've personally had enough of supporting the Communist China built products.  Sorry, not trying to offend anybody, but that's how I roll....
