    Assuming you mean the ones on my feet. They came from The Shoe Mart. I used the feature on the website to sign up for notification for all of the “exotic” shell models they has listed earlier in the year (like five times each). They have since removed that feature. Then I was EXTREMELY LUCKY (if I could make it blink too I would) to receive an email from them after about six to eight months. Then I had 72 hours to call them or they move on to the next person. Now that they have removed any access to “exotic” shell on their website, I think you just need to call them and ask to be placed on a/the list. They will record your preference and then your next move is to just forget all about it. I think part of the key is to legitimately have no hope of acquiring a pair. Easier said than done. I am rather talented at feeling hopeless (humble brag) being a poor fisherman, and I think this time it worked in my favor.

    My new J Crew chinos have arrived and I’m very pleased with the Catskill Green color. Just what I was looking for. How many green pants does a guy need? I think I’m up to five or six.

    These are on my radar. Will we see some pics soon? Did you pick up the broken in or standard chinos?

    Broken In is the only way to go for me as I hate stretch fabrics. It’s my fourth pair of the 770 chinos now. Love fit and weight of the fabric. I still “need” both the Coal Grey and River Brown. I’m sure the green ones will make a debut soon.

    Wow, you guys are right about brushing. I kept getting this weird crusty white stuff on my green shell Parks on the main creases. I was worried about it and put a little bit of bick4 on it in the past. This week, I decided to brush for 15 minutes nonstop. I then finally saw that brushing alone really does work. It just takes a lot of patience to get through it. The white stuff is gone and my Parks look much more shiny than before.

    Also, how do you get rid of rain drop stains on shell? Will brushing alone do it?

    I’m sorry to hear that. I’ll have to cuddle my pup extra long tonight.
    Also, I wore the University’s tonight. The chilli works so well on that shoe

    I've had three beagles over the years now and they tend to be the clowns of the household. They just make life better.

    Very sorry for your loss, your beagle would want you to find a puppy/friend that needs you to share that couch.

    Pardon if already answered, but, they last them with the shearling, so you should not need to size up.

    I love the FAs but had fantasized that Caleres would offer a Shearling Mills, another shut up and take my money boot in almost any material - I'd buy a pair in camo at first sale. :)

    I'm so sorry. I feel your pain. We lost our German Shepherd mix just a couple of months ago.

    I went TTS, and they are a tiny bit tight with heavy socks, quite comfortable with normal weight socks. The Shearling doesn't seem to make a giant difference. But they are WARM, and I like that.

    Sometimes, but usually a soak is better than drops on shell.
