• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

All else equal, do people find both the Dundee and Leeds
My gait is very weird. I’ll wear out the toe 100% in about 10 wears sometimes!

Isn’t it odd that we think about about filling a hole in our collection/rotation that constitutes 6 wears a year????
do you break them in on carpet at all? I’ve heard doing that helps the soles break in, so when you walk around after you don’t wear on them as much

Nope. I go to work in them. I try to walk 1-2 miles on outdoor concrete a day at work, too. My office is carpet and smooth concrete inside.

So just as a refresher....will I see any of you in Nashville this Friday? I'd love to meet you!
As you are aware, I'll be on my way to Prague to start a month long trip in Europe. :)

Oh, and gents I updated the excel sheet with my order added: Snuff Leeds, split reverse welt, chocolate edge, double butyl.

These will be a superb casual shoe.

I know the Tate isn’t loved much, but anyone have experience with a squeaky chukka? Seems it’s near the lacing but it might be within the shoe construction. Basically wondering if it’ll stick around. If they’re forever squeaky than I don’t want to deal with them

Very much superb casual shoe! Super relaxed.

My Nomad Chukka 1.0 squeeks on the left foot. It's actually in the heel. I have no clue the cause, and it is very annoying, but I play to play with it to figure out. If your Tate is leather, perhaps the problem is leather rubbing. Does it squeak if you don't lace it?

And this is where I have a dilemma. I like buying at my home store but they just don’t have the access to the deep abyss. I feel like I am missing out. When I go to the Shoebank, Jean can usually find something interesting right away. She is like a no dot wizard.
did they find new inventory or something (other than pens/writing instruments)?

I seem to think that you recently retired? Is that correct? If so, please describe the retirement feeling related to your shoe collection. Did you instantly feel the need to add a bunch of Wilberts and sneakers to the stable? I got to know.

New brogue suede Strands.

Strand family: natural shell, brogue suede, brown shell.

Gorgeous trio of Strands!
And that shot helps me answer whether the Brogue Strands are too close to the glorious brown shell version.
Oh hell no!
Two people passing on "rare" shell with leather soles within a minute of each other.

I know, right?

Quick but sincere thanks to Ashley and RJ of Team Charleston for digging out a 13 A Grayson and the heretofore nonexistant 13 A Randolph for me to try on in advance of making my trunk show picks, and getting both to me, pronto. Amazing customer service.
Bonus, the 13A Grayson fits very well, and the 13 A Randolph well enough for my skinny flat feet. Randy has a big cone! :p but width-down, he's manageable.
