I'm a newbie and forgot to quote
For what it's worth, New Orleans has nothing on Cajun Country when it comes to boiling crawfish. Come to my parent's home in New Roads, LA and let some authentic Cajuns show you a proper crawfish boil.
Idk Houma boils a mean crawfish. Pretty country up your way though.
Well sure, but Houma is part of Acadiana
It's all good in South Louisiana, though. Damn...I'm hungry.
Paul specifically asked that we email him with MTO requests; you didn't and got "flimsy results". Many people have contacted Paul directly and placed custom orders without issue. You can't expect a sales associate to know what the CEO offers to SF members, much less dig through thousands of posts looking for proof. If you want a custom MTO without the up charge than email Paul and see what they can do for you.
Ive lived in california since the the late 60's but my family had a house boat on False River when I was a kid .My next door neighbors in Baton Rouge owned one othose big camps that served food and had dances just outside New Roads .Damn if I can rember the name of the place their name was Milton
My brother is an ex police chief in BR . Small world .
englade 321, was it Bonaventure's, Jim's or Parrot's perchance? If it was defunct long before my time (pre-1983), I may not know the name, but I'm sure my father would. It is certainly a small world. If you get the itch to ride out on the waves of False River again, look me up.
There's a very good looking pair of new shell Dalton's in 9D on the bay. It's not my listing. Just thought I'd share the link as I think it is quite a good deal.
I was just about to write to you and mention the quote option!
Welcome to the forum and to the AE thread!
Does anyone know where Allen Edmonds sources their calf leather? I think I read somewhere they used to get it from Annonay, but they have since change to another tannery.
I ask because someone asked a question about the uppers on another forum, and I remembered that the leather from my AE shoes that I bought in 2007 is very different from my newer AE shoes (they seem more rubbery/waxy now than they did 6 years ago).
I think I remember hearing somewhere in eastern Europe. Maybe the big man can chime in on this.
I agree about the Patriot comfort. Thank you - here is a pic from when they were new, in better lighting. Note that this is the "old" burgundy shell cordovan - now AE's burgundy shell is darker.
Gorgeous! May I ask how much you paid for these through Mr. Grangaard's special offer to SF?
I believe the offer is standard shell price, so $595
