Hi Friends,

Another recent arrival here. I get a pretty limited selection of factory seconds, but I jumped when these came available. Light Brown Nubuck Landons.

Hey, those look familiar. Just realized that the pair I picked up don't have the loop on the tongue for holding the laces. Can't say I miss that feature at all. I also swapped out the dark brown, flat laces that came with them for a pair of lighter ones I had kicking around from my TS pair of HMs from a while back. Still not sure if I'll keep the laces, but the boots are definite keepers.

Walked around in Hollywood today for three hours so wore Horween English Tan Dublin Leather McGillicuddys which have Danite soles.

My shoes and William Powell's footprints in the forecourt of the Chinese Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd.

IMG_7544.jpeg


For fans of "A-E In The Wild" pictures, in the Hollywood Highland Center which is in the process of being converted from retail to creative office space.

The vacancy behind me once was Sweet, the second largest candy store in the world. A number of people I used to work with gave up good jobs and went to work there when Sweet first opened.

Went there right after Sweet opened and commented with the low average sale (candy isn't expensive) and the lack of foot traffic since Sweet was on the second floor Sweet was seriously overstaffed.

As time went by, the staff at Sweet was reduced over and over again. Sweet closed forever a few months before the pandemic began.

IMG_7554.jpeg


For fans of food pictures in shoe threads, tea and me at the Chado Tea Room in the Hollywood Highland Center in Hollywood CA.

Leaving the tea spoon in the tea cup in this picture is not bad manners. It is a demonstration of nearly lost knowledge.

If you leave the spoon in your cup on the train, what's in your cup doesn't slosh out onto the saucer. You do have to remember to take the spoon out of the cup when you drink what's in the cup.

IMG_7559.jpeg


For fans of random Hollywood pictures in shoe threads, Humphrey Bogart's prints in the forecourt of the Chinese Chinese Theater.

IMG_7545.jpeg


For those who want still more random Hollywood pictures, after tea walked up to the high tower at the end of High Tower Drive.

IMG_7577.jpeg


After that walked down Glencoe Way to the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Samuel Freeman House. You can't see much of it from the street.

IMG_7587.jpeg


On the off chance anyone else wants to do this, here's a map.

Screen Shot 2021-10-19 at 6.11.40 AM.jpeg


The dotted lines on Glencoe Way are these stairs.

IMG_7584.jpeg


If anyone is wondering, I didn't spend $30.00 to get into the Icons Of Darkness pop-up in the Hollywood Highland Center so if you were hoping you would scroll down his far and find pictures taken in there, sorry.

Maybe someone else who post in this thread with go inside and take pictures.

One more random Hollywood picture, Hollywood Blvd was still closed this morning because they were clearing things away after a premiere at the El Capitan Theater yesterday.

I just want to know where you got those trousers from! (But yeah, the Macs are also amazing)
Brooks Brothers my friend. I think they were BB but made in Ireland. I’m embarrassed to say the shirt, sport coat, pocket square, braces and trousers were all BB.

The effort required for that post deserves more than 1 "like". Keep it up, Sir.

Hey, those look familiar. Just realized that the pair I picked up don't have the loop on the tongue for holding the laces. Can't say I miss that feature at all. I also swapped out the dark brown, flat laces that came with them for a pair of lighter ones I had kicking around from my TS pair of HMs from a while back. Still not sure if I'll keep the laces, but the boots are definite keepers.

I find that loop constructs my lacing. I never use it. Maybe I lace boots wrong? 🤷‍♂️

Holy crap. I thought my packages routes are bad taking 10 days to ship from Wisconsin to Minnesota spending half the time going from city to city in the minneapolis metro. Then sometimes I get my package in 48 hours. Whatever happened to fedex? I thought they were better.

I've never used Rakuten before - I go to the site, take the link to AE, put the item in the bag but I don't get the 10%. What the heck am I doing wrong?

I've used it for years and you just have to be patient. After making a purchase (upon clicking through the link from Rakuten) the cashback reward will post to your Rakuten account within a day or so. Then they will mail you a check several times a year. Like a delayed rebate system, but it is real money.

@BFT9000 Any interest in these? They are 8 E, but they would probably fit us well. I can tell you that the 8 D Kiowa I tried on (the same one as this) fit pretty tight at the instep. E width might actually work well. They look great from the exterior, but I cannot tell much about the insole. $69 is pretty cheap.

It isn't cash off like a coupon, it is cash back, like a rebate. So once every 3 months, they will send you a check in the mail for that 10% of your total purchase (+ any other cash back purchases you have made.)
