Michigan Planner, I just picked up the AoC #8 wingtip boots as well. They look great, pics will be up this weekend

This is one of the better dressed threads on the internet. Well done, gentlemen

Anybody have a favorite shoe tree that is as good as the Alden ones? Leather Soul has good ones (that are made at the same place they make the Alden shoe trees), but they're currently out of my size.

Tifosi, you have a sharp and thrifty attitude toward fiduciary expenditures. Bravo young conservative.

I just got my first pair of raw denim back from the tailor. I'm hoping they aren't a gateway...

The more I see the Indy boot in suede the more I want to add a pair to my rotation.

Thanks green garden! I'd wait, but I've never had any luck buying cordovan on discount during those sales … they're usually excluded frown.gif

I recommend going to the store physically, rather than just calling.  They are more likely to spend the effort if you are standing in front of them.
Thanks Bakes! I thought about that, but subsequently forgot. That is definitely plan A.

No watch shot but a sunny day for the J. Crew ravellos fresh from a shine with Saphir cordovan cream.

I've been using Rochester trees found here: http://www.onecedarlane.com/. I like the high vamp on the Washburn.

Tifosi take a serious look at Gustin Denim for good raw denims, if you are interested at all let me reffer you and we'll both benefit.
