I don't think I 'spoilered' those bad boys, either!

Nailed it!

I was convinced that the Ravello WT were the 'best boot ever'. Now, not so sure. Exceptional!

Thanks, I'm tempted just to order both.  I have one kidney that's not getting much use anyway.

I have the color 8 PTB and color 8 longwing with an antique sole. I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with both the color 8 and black longwings one day. They are classic shoes.

With Alden closed for inventory, it looks like the wait for my boots continues...

 

Though, if anyone has had any delays, it might help for you to know that they'll resume shipping out orders and stuff tomorrow. At least, that's what I've been told.

Not exactly "enough to make a grown man cry," but it definitely got a few choice curse words out of me. Brand new jar of Saphir renovateur. Dropped it, broke the lid. Crikey!

These are sweet. Nice pickup. Is it me or does it seem as more BB shoes have the coveted Horween stamp on the inside of the shoe than others?

My guess is that a lot of folks have an attachment to one or two selections from our own collection and I am noo different. Personally, I think these fit the bill perfectly. They go seamlessly between business casual to suits....



However, if I don't include any of my own, I like Bakes reasoning and selection.

Color 8 tassel seems like the ultimate 'one shoe shell'.

You probably just caused BB's site to crash with that comment!

Definitely dislike... 

Although, if it splashed all inside a pair of shoes, you'd be a lot more upset.

Mr DV - you own those #4s man. I'm giving up wearing mine!

LeatherSoul #8 WTB today for me
