    Thanks! Really happy to have a second pair of "grown-up" shoes (the others are black Raf derbies) for biz-caz purposes.

    edit: ^ Some good-looking brogues right there. I like the argyles in that context.

    more impressive than your shine is that fact you seem to get zero scuffing of the sole by the toe. I feel like every pair of mine gets that almost immediately

    These are Church's. I'll probably mostly wear them with chinos and trousers, but yeah, they go alright with denim as well. I usually wear slimmer stuff, but I feel like these have just enough chunkiness to them to work with the LVC 1947s I'm wearing (probably my most relaxed-fitting pair of jeans).

    The ever-controversial black shell (with Epaulet russet nailhead).

    You are welcome.
    I wish Alden still allowed for restoration deviations.

    PSA:

    J Gilbert has two new makeups confirmed available for order:

    Navy suede captoe boot on the Plaza last with crepe sole

    Snuff suede wingtip boot on the Barrie last with commando sole

    I just pulled the trigger on the snuff boot myself. I believe these are smaller run orders so if you want to get in on them I would suggest emailing Yenni. I thought others may be interested...

    I got my order in for the same boot on Saturday. Yenni said that she expects them in October.

    Sorry about that...is she not able to get a second pair in our size? I got the impression she had some flexibility as she is not sending the order in until later this week

    Anyone here have experience with pig bristle brushes? I picked up a few from Hanger Project and I am not sure what I think. I have always used Saphir horsehair brushes. The pig bristles are slightly stiffer than the horsehair but I feel like is see the streaks of the bristle more than the horsehair.

    Speaking of brushes. I've mainly used the $10-$15 horse hair brushes so far. Are the $75-$125 brushes worth the investment? Anybody have a "must have" brush that gets those famous MacShines?

    See Ya,
    Steve
