    Casual Friday in golden brown CXL LBs and faded denim. (Shout out to @parkman24 !!) Swapped out the laces for the yellow ones that came with my Normandy boots. Think I may like yellow better than the red.

    Wow, nice work! Definitely a gamble that paid off. That gives me more faith in taking some bigger risks on the bay.

    I've worn these Warwick and PA for about 20 hours each and they developed some creases. I know leather will crease but should I expect it to happen in this stage? Do you gents think the creases on the Warwick look normal?[​IMG]

    I cannot speak to the "normal" on the warwick as mine have not yet developed creases (only 12 hours of wear and mostly sitting at work). As for the PAs all of mine have this (3 pairs) and my 5A do as well. Some more noticeable than others. They feel good so I do not think its a fit issue. Others may have more insight into ways to reduce creasing.

    Flying to snowy Denver today for my brother's wedding, so I dusted off the Gobis to travel in.

    We can't all have perfect fitting shoes that don't crease (looking at you, @mdubs ). I am always ok with creasing, especially with the extra volume all of my shoes have. Its the one shoe only or non-uniform creasing that bugs me. Something that can at least help with the appearance: don't use wax-based polish in those areas, as the creases become slightly white and more noticeable.

    Almost wore the same pair here in overcast and cold Chicago. Went with the brown Normandy instead. I know there are tons of fans of the suede Gobis, but I think the tan saddle version is just lights-out great.

    LOL. You remind me of the time in high school I said "come on honey, we both know it's wrong but if we do it just this once we promise to never do it again." Yeah, it sounds dumb but it totally worked.

    Need some advice! I have one space on my shoe rack left. 16 pairs of AEs now and no monk straps.

    I'm looking at a clearance Bourbon Mora 2.0 or an Oxblood Warwick (ordered at anniversary sale price).

    I plan to wear them sockless because it's more casual and I like the look.

    I think the single strap is more formal but want opinions. Appreciate any insight!

    Walnut Lexingtons today in Dainite on a casual Friday.

    I think I will, if they still have any left.


    FYI, I noticed that several shoes missing from the shoebank are now back.

    I'm not sure that they were ever missing.
    I noticed a few days ago that the "status" selection was defaulting to "current". This meant that the closeout styles were not displayed, unless you happened to notice and change it. And then I noticed yesterday that the default was back to "all styles".
