Usually not.

Wondered about that as the mailer said "any" purchase. I'm assuming shell is included.

Friends,

I am currently have my eyes set on a pair of medallion tip bluchers in color 8 or black, aberdeen last (2145 and 2146) but am undecided because Im not sure how they will look.

If friends on the forum would have some pictures (new and aged) for these styles that would be really helpful in me making up my mind. Thanks for helping!

Doesn't hurt to try.  Worked for me on a 30% off promotion.

Given my love for all things Horween, I wanted to use one of their products when upholstering the seat. However, items like Cordovan and CXL are pulling a premium as of late. So, i've decided to go with a natural Horween 'horse strip'. As most of you know this is what is left after the cordovan shells are cut away. It may be a little think and stiff for the application, but i'm up for the challenge!

Here is a shot of the strips. With an 18lb West Highland Terrier thrown in for scale confused.gif

I figured out of anyone, you guys can appreciate my insanity.

My girlfriend just shook her head when i told her the plan. shog[1].gif

I know it is not a pull-up, but i hope arse sweat and indigo will patina the hell out of the leather.



Quite like yourself I have made my living with my hands (10 yrs aircraft mech 30 yrs steamfitter / welder) while maintaining an interest in clothing styles . I look forward to to posts on your project perhaps encourage me to do one on some bicycles ive built . Something is bothering me tho. while I feei I have a pretty through knowledge of such thing I cant quite figure out what your avatar is . I think a hydraulic actuator or motor cycle part of some sort interesting

So, if there's a Ravello LWB in my size, I should buy it, right? Even if I already have a tan-ish CXL LWB? And even if I'd prefer some kind of Ravello boot if I had the option?

I haven't received any irregular offerings (in 9D and 9.5D, if that matters) for several months now. Have I been dropped from their list? Have others been receiving these?

I feel like this boot trumps all. Better than the day tripper and the #4 cap toe imo.

I need some Plaza in my life
