Hey gents . . . . Something of a PSA. 9901's for sale on Ebay. Funny thing is, I purchased this very pair from Shoemart irregular list in 2011. Seller lists defects as "Some small scratches on the left shoe." However, if you look at the photos showing the arch area on each shoe, you can see a kind of clumsy half oval patch. Never saw anything like that before or since and couldn't figure out what kind of defect that was or even if they used shell in the patch.

And the site also says that navy is so rare, most people have ever seen it or know of it's existence. Maybe this is an old post? Navy seems to be pretty abundant lately from other shoemakers.

That is jasonfoote303's photo of Whiskey shell folds while the shoe is being bent. This was posted a few years ago in this thread.

Grant last boots the flaw is how the tongue on one pair shifts from center while the other just always stays centered.

 

I tried different lacing, and they are well fitting. Would roughing up the inner side keep it from slipping?

Yup that's what I was looking at. Maybe I'm just sick but that still looks like a dick to me...maybe it's just the angle the photo was taken.

You might want to get that checked out by a doctor if yours looks like that. smile.gif

Haha...so as not imply ownership, I used the indefinite article A dick, and not....MY dick. Bonus points to anyone who knows that reference.

I have ordered from bureau Belfast before and it worked out well. Took a bit to receive but got a unique makeup. I would recommend them without questions.

I agree, they look really nice. Definitely good to hear that they are hard to find. Sine they were defects the cost was only $300. At that price-point, I'll keep them.

Need help fellas. How durable/resilient is cxl? I brought my natty cxl tassels to NYC, and the forecast has taken a turn for the worse. I have my treated suede chukkas, tassels, and a pair of canvas Sperry sneakers. Have some plans where my canvas sneaks will not suffice, and suede treatment or not, I'm super hesitant to wear the chukkas. Am I safe in cxl with a little rain?

Yes absolutely.

Why have you not shared pics of the Natty CXL Tassels?

 

I can't believe you have the audacity to come to us asking for help while holding out on us in such an extreme way.

 

I'm not sure that Natty CXL Tassels have ever been posted in this thread.

 

Shame on you!
