    Man those Players 2.0 in brown grain are terrific. It's excellent they are planning on returning a shortwing (Player 2.0) to the mainstream as it seems that has been a gaping hole in their offerings, unless you were to go with the Dalton or Long Branch boots. The Daltons have never tempted me until I saw them in store and tried them on - very difficult to say no to them as they were only $200 on clearance locally!

    By the way, I am impressed with the Madison Parks at Nordstrom for less that $250. Solid. Limited sizing, so act quickly! http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/madison-park-oxford/4185531 Anybody know what last they are on?

    Unfortunate creasing on your walnut McGregors there, I would return them if the leather doesn't even out. I am real happy with my Dainite McGregor seconds, best of luck on finding an acceptable pair! As for the Larchmont, I would say no unless you are into the fashion-forward contemporary style of the squared toe. I don't even like the Leiden honestly, the McGregor earns my vote any day.

    Maiden voyage for my dark chili PAs today. Picked up a slightly used matching AE belt on eBay for $40.

    I love the color of these shoes.

    Belt was $40. PAs are firsts that were replacements for an ill fitting bourbon pair I picked up during the RDA sale last year.

    Ahh...reading malfunction on my part. I was super jealous of you if you picked those shoes up for $40 on eBay. Either way, looking good.

    Got to watch my son during my lunch while the wife got her hair done. New (to me) Fairfax in chili.

    I've avoided the temptation to buy used shoes from eBay, but I've had an infatuation with this model, and seeing that it's out of production I took a chance. So far the previous owner seems to have made impressions in the footbeds that agree with me. Already got a compliment on them.

    Thought this might warrant a photo. It's a shoe valet that my grandfather made for my father when he was a boy. Obviously too small for my 11.5D's, but it'll make a nice supply caddy until my son is using it.

    About to head to the gym when I get that all too familiar quick knock/followed by steps leaving. First up, Patriot in brown, keeper. Second Ascher in oxblood, keeper. Third (and my favorite color sadly) Cavanaugh in chocolate suede. The 9s in the non suede choked my feet something bad. So these are 9.5. Sadly too much heel slippage. These could be the first pair I send back to the bank. More sad is they don't have a 9 in chocolate suede, but they do have the stone...

    Has AE ever made some minimalist mocs that are: unlined. leather soled (pref. thin leather sole). Basically looking for a high-quality slip on house shoe. Camp moc or eyelet style. Made in DR ok.

    Tongue pad for the Cavanaughs? I couldn't get my foot into a 9.5 Randolph and 10 gave me heel slip. My SA showed me the tongue pad trick and voila they stay in place!

    @peppercorn78 As promised, I tracked down the first usage of "filthy barnweasels" on the forum.

    Here's the first post.


    Here's the first example of someone embracing it.


    Everything after that is from the barnweasels running with it.

    And, as always, I thank all of you filthy barnweasels for enabling me in my pursuit of shoes-I-don't-need-but-really-want.

    I keep waiting for something really awesome to pull the trigger on, but it just hasn't popped up yet.

    For the love of all that's good and pure, keep your virgin eyes off of the Vass or Enzo Bonafe threads. Those weasels will eat ALL the eggs in your henhouse...

    Just got an email update about my Hinsdale loafers being recrafted. Unfortunately they didnt change the sole type (or the pic they sent isnt my shoe). Either way :fu:

    End of the day in hotel. Thought I'd post a gratuitous shoe/watch shot.

    Got oddly excited when noticed someone wearing walnut strands at a bar earlier. I think I need therapy.
