Must say the pin grain pair are really interesting and unique. Awesome collection. Thanks for further cementing my desire for a rosewood cc pair. :bigstar:

Close up in same order
Last pic is veldt on ridgway
Also a pair of top drawers Shannon's on 202
That pin grain is fantastic. There's a darker brown version with some red in it, that would look perfect on a 202 or 82 Newmarket 😁

I'd be really interested to see more photos of the top drawer details on the Shannon. Is it worth going for it in your opinion?

I will once I get home from work today.
Whether it's worth it, or not, that's more a personal answer really like any luxury item.
For me it is. I have about 8 TDs at this point.
Last one I got, was about 2 years ago so not sure if any change in quality since.
So my EGs are all either TDs for work or 72 lasted boots... just my preference

Ha! Dude... if I didn't, I'd need another house with an extra room just for storage of useless shit I literally never think about.
Sounds like you've figured out your next big purchase 🤣. For me the boxes actually make it easier to store the shoes since I can stack them similar to what @CLTesquire did. But I only go 2 high in my closet

Mine are full of the spring/summer rotation. :cool:
I'd be interesting to see how all other shoe/boot sickos manage/store their shoes. I have them all in a shoe closet, but I do find that off-season shoes gather a bit of dust when unworn for extended periods of time.

I've also learned that if there are lots of boxes in the closet my wife won't really know if just one more was added to the mix.
