And is it fine to use Saphir Cordovan Neutral Cream for #8 shell? Heard that it is best not to use neutral?

I get that loose stitch look all the time unfortunately.

Johnny, you only have 20 wears on those? The sole looks like it is coming apart. Did they get drenched or something? I use the Saphir Neutral Cordovan Cream on my lighter shells, but it is best to use the Saphir Burgundy cordovan Cream on #8.

RTP, this is the exact reason this shoe gets so much use for me. It is a great balance of a stylish, well-made looking shoe while being ready for any weather condition. I would recommend it over the natty CXL

They are not coming apart but somehow the top leather shrinks showing the bottom piece? Weird.. never encountered this before

Everyone's Friday shoes are looking great! I am digging the Snuff LHS

 

 

In the spirit of Spring, despite the snow we have received in the last few days I am letting the Whiskey LHS get some carpet time around the office.

This is 1 of the 2 preorders that I currently have outstanding. I can't wait until I receive them in a few months. They do look better in those pics than the ones on leffots site.

Plus one.

 

Crisp crease, good shine on the shoes, and a good tie knot is what distinguishes a sharp dresser from those who are simply well dressed.

Good-looking kicks . . . but either my eyes deceive me or those pant legs are two different colors.

lighting in the office comes in on the left hand side which makes the shading/color appear different.....just glad to have sunshine and break 70 here today!

Gentlemen,

 

I am extremely excited to present to you... The Alden Color #2 "Pinot" LWB! These were a very special make up done in Color #2 "Pinot" Shell Cordovan on the Barrie Last with Natural edges for a casual look. They have a single but thicker, oiled outsole often called the "one and a half" sole.

Thanks,

Mike
