    ReppTie: May I also compliment you on some good looking thick grass. That grass looks clean enough to cut in your Aldens!

    Good pix all around yesterday gents. The haul of LHS by mdubs was awesome!

    Here's a cigar for Friday.

    OK! OK! OK! It's a Mac Method weekend for my new King #8 PTBs. Your PTBs are beautiful. What a shine too! I have to wear mine sometime next week.

    Smokin' cigars sazon. Happy Friday to you. Be careful, I think the man in your photo wants to steal your shoes.

    In re the quoted and requoted photos: I blame the iPhone and all similar devices. The mobile UI lacks the spoiler button (though you can type in the spoiler tags yourself). And even if it did have it, selecting the image text to spoiler isn't that easy on a small touch screen, darn it.

    Tampatravel, thank you very much. The best thing about Alden shell cordovan shoes is wearing them.

    ...and to think. I just bought the 9901s on ebay to go with the 990s. Shoot...according the g/f that's going to look like the same shoe! PURE GENIUS by me [​IMG]

    I can't wait to wear mine - even more so now!

    I've got pairs in burnished tan and walnut and to be honest, I didn't even realize they were different colors at first.

    I mainly check SF on my iPhone and I do type in the spoiler tags manually around the image URL. I am also mildly OCD.

    These are your recent eBay purchase? They cleaned up really well. It may just be seeing them IRL, as opposed to photographed to show the wear that came on them, but I think they look really great here. Enjoy.

    Thanks donl,
    Vintage pair from eBay. I have tried to find info on them, but had no luck.
    # 2951, right heel pad has "the Texas clothier" retailer stamp.

    Yes, same pair. Thank you. I ordered renomat, I hope to give them a good cleaning when the Reno arrives. They look fine irl, i just want to make them look as good as possible.
