    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.

    Well sure, but Houma is part of Acadiana [​IMG]


    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.

    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.

    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
