What is this world coming to?

Delivered today from someone in Wisconsin. Bought on that popular auction site for just under $20 shipped.

$.20 worth of Bick4 and a little elbow grease. I needed an extra pair anyway. The ones in my Avatar are getting quite abused these days (just look at the toes).

What is the welt on this? I’m gunning for light welt and chili with the Hamilton.
Phenomenal! What is the color of the edge you have on these? Assuming these were the buff welt?
I ordered the buff edge option during the last shell cordovan trunk show, and left it in Karina's hands.

Bluejazz is. Madhat is a former Clarinetist. :D
I played the trumpet, horribly, I might add. My love of the trumpet had no bearing on my ability to play the damn thing.

Agreed! I thought the natural welt/cream stitching was a gamble when I set up the order, but I think they came out incredibly well. Thinking of getting some cream colored laces as well to complete the effect.

The only other pair of marbled #8 Strands I'm aware of are the ones that @JbstormburstADV got. And those are completely different than mine. They don't have the dark toe/light body effect and look a little more subdued with the darker welt/stitching, but are still amazing IMO:

@mdubs has a pretty sweet pair as well.

I have always loved the voice of a sweet trumpet. History has many great trumpet players, but Clifford Brown is my all-time favorite.

Took my recently restored Ridgefields on their maiden voyage for a trip to SF today. Wearing my oatmeal linen suit as late into the season as I can. It's still 85 here today, so that might be a while! When I bought these off the Bay, somehow I had it in my head that the Ridgefield was based off the 65 last. Turns out it's the 73 last and actually an extremely good fit. Heel is a bit roomy, but laces up and hugs my arch well enough that it doesn't feel loose at all. Wonder if they'll bring this last back one day.

Hope everyone had a great day today!
