    Out walking in chi town today.... My feet hurt but not as bad as I expected.

    Rogues are slowing becoming my favs for casual wear.

    Uh oh, I see shoebank has one pair of Bourbon Carlyle's in my size.... Hmmm.....[​IMG]

    I just don't want to pass these up. If I buy them, I'll have to not buy any shoes for a few years.

    This is the funniest thing I've heard all week!
    Hang around here with the filthy barn weasels, and I guarantee you'll have another pair by the end of June.

    :D

    What's even more weird is before 2015, I had little interest in shoes. 9 months later, I suddenly have 5 pairs and now looking to buy a 6th. I just don't want to tell my wife I bought yet another shoe this year. I keep telling her "well, I am buying these so they will last me 15 years and then I don't have to buy in the future."

    I'm in the same situation. I bought 8 pairs this year and I have to hide several pairs at once...

    haha....

    I just got those cheap Harrisons and threatening to keep a pair of saddle Vernons and my wife goes "at some point... you're going to have enough shoes right?"

    hahhahahaha.

    "But I didn't have a whole cut or a black stitch cap yet!"

    Based on your photo your wife may have a point. That said you never know when that "some point" will be. Well done cleaning up the Harrisons btw looking great.

    First wear of the new Strands.

    Close-up of the scuff. Cream polish and a spoon didn't work, but I don't have any brown paste wax. May need to pick some up and give it another go.

    All in all, I'm chuffed with these. Will be happier if I can clean up the scuff (just remembered, the other description the SA gave me was, "you know when a cow brushes up against barbed wire?" Which is pretty accurate, I guess?).

    New (to me) Walnut Flatirons from eBay today. I knew they were heavily creased but the price was right for taking a gamble on a last and style I wouldn't have tried otherwise.

    [​IMG]

    In honor if @smfdoc 's series on how not to take eBay photos, I present the original listing photo that I was able to snag for $14.45. I would argue I'm a big fan of poorly photographed shoes because it usually means they can be cleaned up and look a heck of a lot better than you end up paying for them. I think I was right on these!

    [​IMG]
    I had to get new laces and spend some time trying to strip off all the built up wax and coloring. If I get tired of the Walnut I might end up dying them after seeing @mreams99 's pair.

    Nice. Those look horrible in the ebay pic but great after you cleaned them up! Don't dye them, love that color.

    From Wednesday, I try to wear these on walnut Wednesday. They are not walnut, but they are close to walnut. Khaki McTavish. My favorite color AE shoes I own.

    Looking good in your strands. Strands in brown cordovan is actually my favorite model from AE.
