post #73651 of 87366

Sorry, had a busy week...

 

From yesterday, I went Ravello (very Color #4 like) Alden LWBs.

 

 

 

 

 

Today, I went Color #8 Indy on the Plaza Last.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you all had a great Valentine's day.

 

-Mike

a joking pic from another forum about the resiliency of cxl..

 

started as a scrap whilst holding the door for a pretty woman

 

 

 

which then escalated into an inscription 

 

 

which then expanded

 

 

and then finally, after less than a minute with a cheap horsehair

 

 

 

as much as I LOATHE CXL for its creasing, I cannot underappreciate the ability to work out scuffs etc since it is so oily..

I would sell black captoe boot in favor of keeping the cigar version. Maybe the #8 tanker considering you have the black version and two other #8 boots but it would be a really tough call.

This is awesome. CXL has always been on equal ground with shell, in my opinion. You cant ignore how easily it shrugs off scuffs and the elements!

Speaking of CXL, I am currently crushing on this, from Frans Boone:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Does anyone know of any other PTB or similar offerings in navy CXL, preferably stateside?  $600+ is too much for me to justify.

^^Check Haberdash they have that makeup.

Good luck pursuing this. One caveat springs to mind: as an owner of the blue cxl Greenwich wingtip boot, I have experienced a decent amount of wrinkling. I haven't minded it on the vamp, as one is distracted from it by the wingtip and perforations. However, I could imagine that the cxl wrinkling oils be a bit more pronounced on the plain toe.

That said, do I recall correctly that Alden Madison had some blue cxl makeups? Maybe it was leffot with a blue cxl longwing...Sorry, got very little sleep on Valentines night wink.gif

Maybe the #8 wingtip boot and black tanker.

Not sure, but I do know Scarlett Johansson would be the last to go.

I'd kick them all out to make room for Jennifer Lawrence and her clone.  :blush:

Alden shoes are awesome but I'd much rather have this dilemma

Thanks for the responses guys... The question was brought up as I have the color 8 captoes coming next week and I figured I'd try to trim the cordovan boot collection. The issue is that I wear all of the boots described on a regular basis - each has a purpose. The two that overlap the most are the color 8 tankers / cigar captoes (brownish casual boots) and the color 8 wingtips / color 8 captoes (color 8 dress casuals on commando). Of those four the color 8 wingtips would seem the most expendable a but I wear those a ton. The color 8 tankers and cigar captoes are also both untouchable. I'll probably end up selling a couple of shoes instead.

^ in all seriousness, the only pair i'd ditch is the cigar chukka, though even that's a pretty sweet boot.
