    Ha me too. It's too flashy for me, but I'd prolly cop. Too bad my size is gone.

    Quick question on Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax polish: I'm using the bordeaux for my #8 shell. What color traditionally works best for cigar offerings?

    Nothing exciting and no sexy corodvan today.

    Handsewn suede blucher... super comfort right out of the box. I don't know why I haven't been wearing these more often.

    They do look comfortable. I was looking at a similar pair (or the same kind) when I was at Shoe Mart recently.

    These are from the Shoe Mart. I've had them 6 months or so and probably only worn them about 3 or 4 times though.

    Don't quote me on it but I think Rust = Snuff in this case. These can be bought from Alden NYC and a picture can be found on their website

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's probably cancer. You need to take them down to your local oncologist and if they catch it quickly, it might save your boot. They might have to cut it out and put in a denim patch, or maybe suede, but your boots are on the slide to the end. Be careful when wearing them, always wear socks, because you really don't want to catch cancer.

    Well, it can be opened in a new window and it'll be quite large. Also, no offense, but those socks don't look right with those shoes, IMO.
