Well over $100k worth of Alden's today. I hope everyone's homes insurance is up to date in case of any disasters...

I did think that #2 looked a little grainy, but could not remember a grain WTB in that color, but now I can.

That would indeed open up an entirely new can of worms.  Maybe you could justify just replacing the LWB, as they (deadhorse-a.gif) that they fit larger than other barrie make-ups.

 

that is my hope.. if so, I'll atleast know I have another option should cigar LWB come into my radar

If any of these collections were the victim of some unfortunate mishap (god forbid), the claims adjuster from the insurance company might suspect fraud after hearing the value of a bunch of men's shoes :P

However, thought I'd share my family photo of brothers from different mothers on this memorial day.

Rtp, great looking family shot.
I think we have very similar taste.
That's also the perfect set up for a group picture, and I see you have more room.....

Thank you amigo.  We do in fact have very similar tastes.  There is plenty of room, but I will have to slow down.  This is an expensive habit and thread.  I gain inspiration everyday from gentlemen like you, Uncle, SFTG, CTYGGG, BeSpiff, zippyh, etc...  nod[1].gif

Wow -- I was just making a joke, but if that's your TTS and not Barrie size, RTP's suggestions and Lojack may be your best options.  nod[1].gif

Don't know about anyone else, but all these collection shots today makes me want to take this disease to the next level!
