    I’ve got my new HMs and there’s a chance of rain today.
    A chance of rain means that there is also a chance it’s not going to rain!
    Those boots aren’t going to wear themselves TM.

    That's the spirit. Half the fun is in the patina and maintenance process anyways.

    Yes, agree.

    It is really something how many TS gems are coming through, seems likely that this TS will flavor this thread for years to come.

    I stayed out of TS 2017, curious if those who bought could comment on differences in experience.

    I blame your wait on AE SA spies who know how long you are used to waiting for Shell. Even 12 weeks is a significant improvement over the other guys.

    Green shell Randolphs today.

    I continue to search for proper socks to wear with green shoes.

    Thanks!

    I have many favorite pairs but I really love that style. There was a point when I was going to order several adelaides from several makers haha. As of now the now 2 pairs of Cornwallis are the only ones I have.

    I stayed away from shell for a while. I couldn't understand spending so much for them. Now... I have no real justification that makes any sense, I have enough shoes to wear them for life. So now I just tell myself its better than whatever alternative way I'd waste money. In any event, it isn't like I stopped buying non-shell models. Basically what I'm saying is, buy them, not a fool.

    It seems like there are fewer QC issues and generally happy people this go around. It was a little less complicated to order them off the bat last time (perhaps because it wasn't quite as hyped? not sure). Both of my experiences were good though.

    The socks look good.

    And St Patrick, Lord of the Shell, approves!

    Thanks, was curious. I stayed out iirc because I felt I had covered those bases in TS2015, TS2017 was too similar.
