A little coffee talk with @tcbinnc this morning. Thanks for meeting up again @tcbinnc it was great seeing you again! (Yes we were wearing masks for this photo as we were too close to observe social distancing guidelines.)
Clockwise from the top: @tcbinnc, AEFaninTampa’s dad, and @AEfaninTampa.

Dad is adjusting the tightness of his Maritimes before committing to trimming the laces.
After coffee, I headed into downtown Raleigh to browse the goods at Ealdwine Raleigh (https://www.ealdwineraleigh.com). Thanks for the hospitality @jpm1 it was a pleasure meeting you and exploring the store. Appreciate the Alden education. What a great selection of menswear: Alden, Ashland Leather, Frank Clegg, Mizzen + Main, Chup, Pantherella, and others. If you are looking for shell tab belts in colors other than AE offers, you should check them out!

I picked up a new Alden horsehair brush(those things are beefy!) and an Ashland natural CXL valet tray.
And of course, had to take the patented @jpm1 photo from the mirror.

Happy Friday eve and back to your regularly scheduled trunk-sneaker show discussion...
Patiently waiting on the shell color options to be revealed...
Here's a pic from earlier in this thread:Are the snuff brown suede Patton’s really snuff? They look much darker - if anybody has pics that’d be great!
I just stripped a burgundy pair and use the dark brown again. Let it dry overnight and I have color come off when I buff. Then I have Color come off when I apply renovateur and again with wax. So what’s the situation with colorfastness?The Fiebings dark brown does have a lot of red in it. It’s been that way as long as I can remember.
