    Buying & Selling aka the marketplace. Scroll to the top of the page and you'll see a header with "marketplace" it is divided into two main categories Classic Menswear and Streetwear and Denim. Lots of good stuff in there!

    I hear you. I'm in the process of whittling down my collection as well (I have 30+ pairs of various brands). For me, fit is #1. If the fit isn't right, they need to go. #2 is whether I'll wear them or not given my work/lifestyle. It's a slow process but it's coming along. Unfortunately, I've also still got 4-5 pre-orders incoming. :embar:


    I'd hang onto the Leffot Tankers, Steel!

    @mdubs The hole is doing good. Ski season has come to an end and spring has sprung. Time for off season adventures. Getting close to raft time.

    Those leffot tankers look great! Glad you decided to keep them! I hear ya on cutting down the collection... I took count and I'm now at 20 pairs of boots/shoes with a pair of tan LHS loafers on the way... Currently have 5 shoes on eBay but I can't part with any others for now haha You figure most boots will be shelved soon for the spring/summer so hopefully that makes it easier to decide what to wear in the morning :)

    Those are amazing. Can you expand a bit on your polishing process? Try as I might, it's a toss up if my shoes even look better after I polish them...

    no stays and feels the same. it's amazing how well it works. I used Saphir Invulner as that was what my supplier carried when they ran out of nano. Just rolls off.
