nephew,
good looking combo
enjoy wearing your marcoliani cashmere argyles
my recommendation is go for basics-ptb, lwb, wt, lhs, tassel, cap toe, full strap, nst, monk and straight tip and have shoe in cigar, ravello, whiskey and color 4

nephew,
keep the ptb and next get the lhs

Haha, so your advice is keep the ravello chukka AND whiskey PTB AND also get a whiskey LHS? I'm definitely sticking to 1 ravello and 1 whiskey for the immediate future, and I like the chukka, PTB, and LHS in those colors.

nephew,
that would be my advice, of course, it is more important to put food on the table, clothes on your back, fund your 401 k, pay off your mortgage and give to charity etc

Someone that wears a 10D in barrie needs to jump on these "King of the Gunboats!"  I'd get them if didn't already have them...

The seller looks pretty reliable.

Thanks uncle. It may be realistic to acquire all of those over time, and it would be a great collection indeed.

Just received a very pleasant email from Yenni at J Gilbert who says they're putting in their pre-order for Reverse Chamois Indy's if anyone's interested. yenni@jgilbertfootwear.com

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Blue, I finally found a couple places in my yard where I can take my shoe pictures. My wife and daughter think i'm funny (crazy).
