    Wow. Aportnoy, you've got some competition.

    Can you make it so the pictures can be enlarged?

    [​IMG] I've got the exact same as the two on the right. Great choice! The others are brilliant too. Special kudos on the brown Seymour and the chestnut Vintage 2004! I got the Seymour in black ([​IMG]) and the Vintage 2004 in "Pepper Velvet". ... last comment deleted for being rude and stooopid ...

    Nice, I'm really jealous of the black 2002s. I have them in burgundy and really want them in black. They are my favorite shoes I own.

    Sysdoc, I was waiting for your comment. I learned a lot from you about shoes and now I'm trying to build a complete shoe wardrobe. Thanks again for your participation to the forum.[​IMG]
    Thank you for giving Andrew and me a run for our money! [​IMG] We all learn from each other ... thanks to SF ... anybody still remember that SF has actually been down for a whole month? ... when was that again?

    Didn't you know I get a new JL for every 10th shoe posting at SF? [​IMG] I wish ... Ooops! I lost my 'junior member' virginity ... for the second time [​IMG]

    Ok, new rug and other shoes, but I know Church's are not so well considered here. I found a deal on herringshoes.co.uk so here they are:

    [​IMG]
    -Church's Nene black calf
    -Tricker's Kensington chocolate suede
    -Church's Goodrich brown nevada calf

    And it's time to use a lot of Saphir crème surfine!!!

    Now THAT is new! Andrew never teamed up his shoes with polish![​IMG] Daniele, I can see a new shoe specialist joining this elusive forum ... Good to have you! Benvenuto!
