    I'm not so sure. We haven't actually seen exactly where the ball of his foot really falls.

    Chili Fifth Aves today; I'm not wild about the v-gap but they generally fit pretty well, and going up in width would make the heels slip more than they already do. They are a bit tight across the right instep. Love this color.

    @mykoh I just remembered AE doesn't make much in 6.5D beyond the 65 last (I was worried watching that last 20 min of sandler's pixels movie would make me more stupid, guess I was right). So you can't exactly get whatever you want...id check out the 108 and 511 first in a longer length. I found out about the 6.5D months ago when I went looking for a 6.5D rogue.

    Maiden voyage of the Freiburgs today. I know I thought these would be relegated to denim duty but I thought this shirt today would pair great. (With some tan chinos). The shoes bring out the reddish brown stripe in the shirt.

    Might be a bit closer, but polish is better at making shoes darker than lighter. I'm making this up, but you might lighten 10-20% (again, that is a WAG).

    If your concern is you personally stripping off the burnish, a cobbler can certainly do this for you. If it's philosophical, this might not be the way to go. The shoe care thread might be helpful to make the decision. If you are set in walnut, lighter polish over the bourbon probably won't get you there.

    If it was me, I'd get the bourbon. It is a screaming value right now and I personally love the color. Your comfort level may change over time; and it would be quite easy to go from bourbon to walnut (and back!) if you so choose.

    Short wing and denim today as well. I broke my personal rule on balmorals and jeans as my Cambridge hadn't been out in a while.

    Has anyone successfully used black polish on an oxblood to get a nice antique effect?

    I saw someone in the previous appreciation thread that did this with, I think, a walnut or bourbon shoe using black polish. He did it on the cap toe and over the broguing and the effect was gorgeous.

    I have a pair of oxblood McGregor wingtips on the way and I'm thinking of doing this with them.

    Couldn't find anything searching for it. This was closet I came:

    Wore my cognac Lombards today. Lombards are similar to Players, except that they have rubber soles and heels and Poiron insoles (two of my favorite things)........

    @jet-stream well, I pulled the trigger on the bourbons. $197 was just too good to pass up. For now, I'll sit tight on the bourbon color, but if it doesn't sit well with me or if I get the itch to go with the walnut, I'll take your advice and visit the cobbler. On a side note, the guy at shoebank was kind enough to toss in a tube of walnut polish (along with the bourbon I ordered) just for shits and giggles. Thanks for the advice!

    As the poet Britney Spears once said:

    Added a black shell Dundee to the rotation. These were sold to me as seconds, but they are perfect, with no stamp on the soles.

    It's not Walnut Wednesday, but I feel the Flatiron calling my name today.

    I'm looking to buy a sh1tkicker LWB and I seem to remember reading somewhere that if you go with a burgundy sh1tkicker then it should be cordovan and not calf.

    Is this a good rule to go by and if so what is the rationale? Would the MacNeil 2.0 in chili calf be a violation of this rule?

    Congrats! It is a crazy price - go forth and enjoy!

    If I'm wrong about bourbon, renomat is really not difficult to deal with (tho hopefully you like the smell of turpentine) ...
