    The color really gets me, it looks really versatile.

    Being shell it 'shades' nicely. The color is different from every angle. So they do blend well with lot's of colors. It's one of shell's best qualities, in my opinion.

    Looks like it to me. He's been making public appearances in a wheelchair fairly regularly these days.

    I like the socks - although they are more 'so wrong, they're right' than anything else.

    Rikod, Gyasih, and Spoo - Thanks for the compliments on the Finsburies in shell.

    Fritzl - :slapfight: - Actually I like the Vass better too, in many ways. Each has their charms.

    Me Today:
    Shoes - C&J Drummonds in Beechnut with my experimental 'Gdot polish' which frankly isn't working out all that special.
    Socks - Calvin Klein :embar:
    Trou - Corneliani (part of a new suit - :inlove:)

    I have read several threads on here that discusses people's frustration with the leather on C&J handgrade shoes. Apparently it is a crust finish that ends up getting kind of dry looking and so on. Maybe it could be this?

    Can't blame CJ for this one. These were plain old benchgrades with their usual C&J benchgrade finish - to which I applied multiple layers of cream attempting to get a deep 'hand patina' finish. They looked great until I wore them a couple of times. At which point the finish just sort of 'fell apart'.

    The other two pairs of benchgrades I've had (and not worked over with lots of cream) have done just great.

    So this pair is totally my doing. - I'm going to keep on just buffing and conditioning them for a while to see how they go before I strip and redo them. They look dry - but they aren't - it's the effect of the lighter colored creams that I used.
