I was there earlier this year (May?) and you could have shot a cannon through the streets it was so dead.



Haha, thank you! Keeping it real and classy over here!
It was pretty dead during the week but it picked up on thursday. July isnt really the ideal time to visit as it happens :hide:

I was looking back over for this. How often should 'regularly' be? Thanks
I think it varies a lot with wear, age, and material. Ask different people and you'll get different replies. Some of the bespoke makers say never needed. Seems like Horween would suggest occasionally. There's not defined time frame though. I'd say when they look and feel like they need it. Maybe once a year for mine. 30 years in a closet is too long for sure, though!

I emailed AE 21/2 weeks ago about my May 3rd order for chili shell Daltons. They didn’t reply (said timeframe for reply is 2-3 weeks), but suddenly I have been notified that the boots have been shipped. Tracking has them arriving this Friday via FedEx. Gives me something to look forward too. Going to Foreign Cinema (in SF) for dinner next week.... I know what I’ll be wearing!
I too ordered Chili Shell Daltons. My order was June 3rd. Wonder how much longer I will have to wait. My order was the same week the factory opened back up so I assumed there was a good backlog they would have to get through before starting mine. Seems I was right.

Last post on the Kenwoods since I am sure everyone is getting bored of the discussion. Spent some time late last night cleaning them up a bit. Full wipe down inside and out and a coat of Bick4 also inside and out and brushing. They actually didn't need to be conditioned but since these are new to me it's just my standard practice. The shell on these is really quite nice. Thick, supple, and in very good shape. Also note the horween stamps on the inside. :)

Very hazy out today so the pics are not fantastic... Planning to wear these today to get a better sense of the fit.

Those are pretty cool. I should’ve grabbed a pair when they were heavily discounted in the bank

I dont recollect when that happened... it must have been before I was shell obsessed or during a window of time when I was relatively disengaged.

Seems like 2017 or 2018 when the shell Kenwoods popped up on my radar as discontinued/discounted. Must’ve been the former (pre obsession) since I hesitated.

Those came out nice.

Anyone, were the Kenwoods built at the (not) Rancourt factory, or were they after the split?
