    I got some AE shoe polish so I may give that a try. Your Strands looks a bit darker than ones I've seen, is this because of the Saphir Cognac you've been working with?
    I love how you lace the shoes, I may need to borrow this.[​IMG]

    No, this picture is pre-experimentation. Nothing but AE Walnut polish, which darkens the Strands with time. I like them darker, but some try to preserve the original color by alternating between a lighter and darker polish.

    crossing a stream. (Probably not a good idea to try this wearing shoes with leather soles.)

    I like the Neumora's a lot; I like the monkstrap on the 3 last. If you're not a fan of the toe box, go for the Mora 2.0's (awful name).

    I also like the Franciscan as i prefer the look of the single strap. I also like the broguing, but I believe I am in the minority on that

    Ah, I tend to favor burgundy over any other color

    Merlot Park Avenues from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale arrived today. They look and feel spectacular! I was nervous since I've had to re-learn my size after losing 65lbs.

    Here's a family picture of all of my Merlot / Burgundy AE's:

    I agree. I am at a loss why Vinny Mac would even be interested in style. From his "style" photo below, I can certainly see how his closet would be rather limited in shirt selections:

    Wow, sounds like an awesome project. If you go through with it, make sure to document.

    Here is my storage setup. Two pairs per box of boots and I can get 3 pair of AE's in there. There's no need for me to drill holes for leather "breathing" since the seal on these bins is quite loose and plenty of air gets in and out. Going to work on the labeling next And check out my "butt ugly" shirts on plebe wire hangers!:

    I had to take a double look on your photo - very creative. For a moment I asked myself "how did he get those rocks up in the trees?"

    Earlier in this thread somebody mentioned getting an orange color to the strands when using the cognac polish and they would use the AE polish every now and then to combat the orangeness. Keep us updated when you try the the saphir cognac though. Are you getting the cognac cream or the wax?

    Thank you, David. There have been many people who have posted about what wearing Ridgeways feels like walking on the sidewalk. Walking off the sidewalk is totally different, and is what I thought that the Ridgeways were made for. They are very good "off-road" shoes as anyone who climbs up a hill in the woods covered with pine needles will find out.

    The orange welt and laces also look very good with an orange shirt or jacket, which is the sort of shirt or jacket that one wears in the woods to avoid being mistaken for anything that anyone is out hunting.
