glad to hear, I imagine these are going to be heavy in the rotation so they'll get the chance to stretch

Perhaps CTYGGG can offer a tutorial on shoe photography for the rest of us.

While the boots are hard to see, that is to be expected when you capture the whole outfit.
I'm confident you'll get there, just give it time.

Sometimes I forget how peculiar our habit is.  Usually it's the wife who has to hide the expensive new shoes from the husband.  My sisters think it is really weird that I post pics of my shoes on the web for others to compliment.  They think its even weirder that I have an Uncle Mac (online that is, we have an "Uncle Mac" IRL as well.  Heck, they even think its weird that I have a website for discussing shoes.  They called it my "Shoe Blog".

I know a guy who bought a really expensive shotgun and hid it from his wife for about 6 months.  Used to work with a guy who had a separate secret bank account for gambling activities.  We all have our vices, shoes are much healthier than others.

My wife loves it when a box of shoes arrive. She just goes out and buys something for the house. My $570 deal on #8 LWBs actually cost $1070, with $500 of that going for new end tables. My argument that the old ones were supporting the lamps just fine did not work.

Thanks to Cathy at Alden DC for once again sending me two pairs for size comparison.  Loved the cigar shell more, but the 11.5E just fits better. I have four other Aldens in cigar, so one color 8 seemed the way to go.

looking good in cap toe boot, wear in good health, consider overshoes, salt to melt snow and ice is detrimental to leather

In my CXL experience, they are the most forgiving of Aldens and tend to stretch easily. After a few wears, I suspect your Tankers will fit perfectly.

Horsemeat in Tesco burgers prompts apology in UK papers

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21054688

 

This is horrible.  Can someone tell me if Horween is killing horses to get Cordovan leather?  Is it illegal to consume horsemeat in the US?

Horsemeat is delicious. Wish it was legal in the US.

It is illegal to slaughter horses for meat in the US, but not illegal to consume horsemeat. It is legal to eat horse in a lot of Europe. A lot of Horween shell, as I understand it, is a byproduct of that.

FWIW I'd argue that the thoroughbred horseracing industry (popular here in the US) is a lot more inhumane to horses, but this thread is probably not the place for all that
