    All alden laces are crap (even the waxed ones)

    If you don't mind something a little more rugged I've had great success with red wing boot laces. (the ones that came with my GT's are perfect on my tankers)
    If you go on the red wing heritage site you can request a free pair.

    A quick note. I'm very happy I chose the Chamois LW for my rough wear shoe. While out at the store I dropped a baby bottle of food right next to my shoe. Glass shards and bright yellow food everywhere! It came right off with no stain. I wiped it off with a wet towel and then brushed the food out of the brogue holes a little later. No problem.

    Necro. Love that look. Going to try out the natural indys. Hopefully sizing down from a 9D to 8E in barrie will work. If not, to the f/s they go.

    Alright, nobody told me you could turn cap toe boots into wingtip bals with the deer bone. That is voodoo magic.

    Great video, Namor

    seeing that reminds me,
    can anyone recommend a good (and not crazy expensive) source for large horsehair brushes?

    Can anyone else with Chamois Longwing Blucher's from Leffot comment on how these fit? Considering sizing down to 8D from 9D since that's the only size left and I've heard these fit abit large (for Barrie).

    Guys I've listed a pair of Brown shell cordovan tassels from BB in the men's clothing classifieds thread.

    My first thought is that they are some kind of special make-up, but another user mentioned they might be light soaked from being on the floor of BB and thus the brown shade.
    I'm not sure considering the brown is not just on the vamp but encompasses the whole shoe.

    seeking opinions:

    www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Q7PGZG/

    8" long, 2.75" wide for $12 + shipping.

    I would recommend looking at the other items that Amazon seller stocks. As long as you are paying shipping, you might as well get a few more goodies -- the obvious choice being the duck handle shoe horn: www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000POL2LC/
