    It's very interesting that a lot of you guys are so into the shirts, sometimes more than the walts. I think the print shirts are awful and all my money is going to walts (10 pairs so far) and chinos (hoping to get 3 or 4 when Mike drops them in Feb). Not complaining because any business going Mike's way means more cool stuff for us, but it's weird. :foo:

    NYR is right as always. In addition to that, very serious scratches tend to be a good job for a deer bone.

    I used to think this was hocus pocus, but this video mostly convinced me otherwise.

    Lastly, for the puncture -- I'm very sorry to hear about that. That might be difficult to fix on your own. There are two things I would suggest. First, you could take your shoe to B. Nelson and/or Leather Spa and see what they say. It is possible, however not entirely likely, that they could patch the shoe in some way from the inside. Second -- and I might actually do this first -- I'd give the Fiebing leather company a call. They are a leather and horse care product manufacturer in Milwaukee, and make products not just for home shoe care, but for cobblers, shoemakers, and leatherworkers. Their resin-based "Kote" finishes are used by many (including me) to heal deep scuffs on shoe leather, although I have never used these products on shell cordovan. I would give them a call and ask their advice. In my experience, calling up leather care companies is actually a great way to get professional advice. I don't know their level of experience with shell, though, so take that for what it's worth. Good luck!

    Ah man, the holidays do catch up to you. First with bills, then with the scale.
    Dr. told me yesterday to drop 15lbs to get my BMI back down to acceptable levels.

    Bad news is I’m gonna miss the bourbon and onion rings. Good news is my Walts should fit much better and I can use all the saved up booze money for some spring phatness from Ep.

    I was haning out with Mike and we were shooting the shit about all sorts of things. Lot's of cool stuff in the works, both Epaulet, and Epaulet and Styleforum together. Pretty stoked, tbh. I'll let Mike fill you guys in.

    i would add that KG rocks those printed shirts hard. maybe it has something to do with the longer hair that he and James May pull it off so well, KG better than Capt. Slow in fact.

    Saw a guy with a buzz wearing a Liberty shirt in the shop the other day, and it looked great. Think it's more about your personality. Honestly underneath a sweater those Liberty shirts would look good on anyone.

    Good to hear you can wear the Walts with a borderline too-high BMI.
