I guess I'll just keep reading these threads and dream. (I do have four mto boots that are pending that will have to keep the addiction satiated.)

 

 

Persian rugs make a great backdrop for photographing classic shoes and boots.  :bigstar:

That is correct. 

It was a toss up between these and the Color 8. 

Either choice was a win IMO.

No wrong answer in that scenario!

9/14 - order shipped (to my old address unfortunately)
9/19 - delivery attempted, then forwarded to new address
9/29 - processed through sort facility in Greensboro, NC (keep in mind I live in Florida)
9/30 - depart USPS sort facility

And then no updates since then. I literally moved about 5 miles from my old place to my new place, but instead of forwarding the package directly there, it somehow got forwarded to North Carolina and now I don't know where it is. I used to like USPS but they're really pissing me off here.

 

This happened to me once in a very similar setting (moved about 5 miles from the old place; order sent to the old address but USPS had the address change in file). My package shipped to my old address in NJ ended up being processed by the Greensboro center. I never received it but it was subsequently resent to the sender. This took about 3 weeks in total.

One of my two or three favorite makeups. I am assuming the commando sole Alden DC?

Boy would they make a great addition to my captoe on Grant stable! Nicely done, MrDV.

Outstanding charcoal + whiskey combination.

Thanks all for the advice on my cigar lwb and 975s. Unfortunately, economics dictate that I can't keep both so I'm going to list my 10D cigar LWBs for sale. Let's see what happens...

I know the risks, but I can't help wearing my suede chukkas with raw denim. Can I do anything to preemptively ward off stains? And what should I buy to remove them once they appear?
