Cole Haan is made in Italy?
Nice boots. Hoping the Cigar straight tip from DC will have another run so I can pick up a pair.
Happy inaugural Patina Sunday (if you're choosing to celebrate) and Easter (if you're into that sort of thing).
My collection is less than a year old and hasn't aged much so I've chosen a photo posted previously in this thread. Taken at Leather Soul Hawaii, both of these shoes are color 8 NSTs. This photo was originally taken and posted by member Dexter_ in 2010. Coincidentally, it appears the aged shoe's color is somewhere between a paska and kielbasa.
if by wishlisted you mean a product that has a delivery date further out than normal shipping.. all 4 pair of Aldens purchased from them have arrived earlier than quoted.. I remember reading somewhere that the CEO of Jcrew admits that they would prefer to quote a date and then exceed expectation by delivering earlier.
I think they are worth it if you've got the funds for another color 8 boot. The NST generally run a little narrow so the barrie and the size up to TTS should be great. Good luck my friend...
Have you tried using a suede brush yet? After brushing and applying the water-proofing, suede protector, it may not be as noticeable. I can't really tell from the picture how bad it is.
It certainly looks like the 4060 (grant).
ArtofWardrobe, I applaud you for your excellent idea to initiate Patina Sundays, but certainly the following guidelines are appropriate...
1. Posted pics need to be your own (otherwise I could simply search through the internet).
2. Pics shouldn't be artificially enhanced... Sorry El Argentino, while I absolutely love your snap speed pics, I was hoping to see aged shell and natural patina. But by all means, keep posting those amazing looking pictures!
If I am out of line, forgive me. I'll just observe and read.
