    Congrats! They look awesome. I think a #8 WT boot has to be my next pick up. They really look great with the olive pants. Nice work!

    Whiskey LWBs arrived yesterday...

    I love the way untouched blouchers have the "bloucher flaps" sticking straight up and the tongue perfectly flat. Even better is the smell of shell that immediately escapes when you open the box. Couldn't be happier with them.

    Here is a comparison pick of a sun-tanned whiskey wingtip after about 50 hours of exposure to intense, summertime sunlight.

    Yep, my camel PT boot shipped as well. Hope it has no defect and hasn't been tried on!

    Ha. Well today it was a steering wheel for the tow rig. 04 Ram 2500. The original leather wheel is still together just very worn and smooth (481k miles) so was seeing what an oem replacement was. Kinda shocked it was $90 shipped. Wasn't sure what I'd be getting but sure enough it was the real deal. Also been getting wheel bearings and joints and various wear items.

    Also it's been Mini parts since mine ate an exhaust valve somewhat recently. 09 at 105k.

    The project is an 88 E30 though. It's slowed since getting married in October but poised to get done when we move into our house next month.


    No doubt. Hoping some dovers and LHS make the next 2nds list. Need a discount given the shell acquisitions lately and scheduled.

    Saddles!

    [​IMG]



    Super excited about these. I love the edgy nature of this saddle being a blucher and perf-less. Thanks to Alden of SanDiego who happened to get a rare 11D in from the usual runs of 10.5s.

    We need to get a retailer on a #4 makeup.

    With flash.

    If I was Mike's size I would be on the streets. I'd have some fine looking shoes.. but I would definitely be kicked out!

    They look like #4 and black shell. I believe Leathersoul had that run a few years ago.

    Ha! Even if one person wanted all of my shoes for sale, I wouldn't sell them all to one person. I am a fan of being fair and equitable...

    I am sorry bud! If I get another Color 4 shoe in 11D BNIB I will give you a buzz. Don't hold your breath. ;-) Although, I technically never owned those shoes. I actually sold them for someone else.

    I am glad to see that they went to someone on the forum......and at what appears to be a fair price for such a rare find......look forward to seeing them get some wear

    I should have checked out the Alden of SD site earlier......amazing job!
