I'm sorry but those are amazing! The bar lacing sets it off!
This will force me to pull the trigger on the 4060 i've been on the fence about.

I couldn't do that. It's very likely that these will end up in the trash, or on your shelf as a daily reminder to never do something like this again lol.

That's what I like to see! People baby their shoes too much--beat them up, they are boots after all!

I find that a trip to the muddy dog park is a great way to get some paw scratches and patina.

I picked up the #8 wingtip from BB. fingers crossed the paint on the eyelets dont chip as fast as the ones on my boots.

The paint has come off several of the eyelets on my #8 BB wingtips.
And the paint didn't chip off either. It's like the whole ring of it came loose. Looks like there's green oxidation on the brass too.
That's the only pair of Aldens I have with that problem.

Hmmmm, not as bad as I expected after the smurf comment. I'd still call them closer to royal blue than navy. Do you think they will get darker with more spray? Are they dry in the pics? I bet they get off the shelf every once in a while.biggrin.gif

I believe he has mentioned in the past that he is a CPA.

I know that he seems to disappear in March and April leading up to tax day and if he is anything like my wife, and has some government clients, foundations, or non-profits, this could be another busy time of year for him since most of them close their books September 30th.

There's nothing like words of encouragement .... biggrin.gif

But in the interest of full disclosure, I couldn't do that either.

Good luck to Namor.

Interesting.

I've never had this issue with my eyelets.
