    My Beaulieu have finally made it to Bethpage so I assume I should get them next week. Until then... for today: Shannon [​IMG]

    Wow. Since I'm a boot guy at heart, maybe I should get them instead of a Chelsea.... Hmmmmmm.....

    I own a pair of Carmina Jodhpur but I like the leather used by EG better (it has more substance). I also find that the soles used by EG to be harder-wearing.

    Shannons are great boots... hence the reason I own a number of them.

    So would a Shannon in all black only be available via MTO?

    I don't believe EG has any Shannons in all black in stock. It's a tricky boot because they don't regularly carry the same colors. Also, EG tends to contrast the shaft and uppers.

    I still rock a pair of Gap selvage jeans that I think I picked up for $20. Funny thing is I get asked about them when I post pics of shoes with those jeans... For my work stuff, i do try to step it up, my weekend gear pretty much looks like Goodwill's clearance rack's.

    Haven't yet but I should be. However I would imagine in order to get one in Zug it would to come from some willing to take a custom request. They also would have to be in contact with the right tannery. Not the easiest thing to find that's for sure.

    One more try.

    What color polish does everybody use on their Dark Oak shoes?

    A Shannon might be nice, I just haven't found the one I want yet.





    Besides being a boot guy, I need to get a few more shoes first. LOL

    Medium brown, with some black on the toe and heel when needed. I am not so concerned about maintaining the original color on most of my shoes. My preference is to see what patina emerges with time...
