    Crap. Now I KNOW I screwed up by not partaking. Ast a glace with round laces they could be confused for an Alden make up.

    Kicking myself for not getting in on the HM shell or reverse kudu boots. Those shell boots look fantastic.

    Round laces look really good there. I'll probably receive my boots around the end of next week.

    Thank you very much for these pics!

    The first pic shows that range, from a bit lighter to darker which I like much more than a straight up dark brown.

    And I see your face in the second photo, in the boot.

    It was pathetic of me to join this build and I felt the same way with kudu. Damn the torpedos...

    Pathetic? Hardly. I don't say this to be an enabler, but from our interactions on this board, it is clear that you enjoy finely crafted goods, as do we all. I've said several times that participating in this board and exchanging thoughts and ideas about our collections is a hobby. So long as the hobby doesn't interfere with your life, it can be a healthy thing.

    :) Having a hard time taking my eyes off the shiny boots long enough to reply. :)

    Totally agree with you about this place as a hobby,
    the Filthy Barn Weasel enabling is really just eye opening access to better things that I want.

    I mock myself a bit because I am overloaded and last year decided to enjoy my closet(s) and cease buying. But the 2 recent HM GMTOs have met or exceeded my hopes and that is without even thinking of the Loden Mills. No regrets and honestly, my wife digs what this place has done for me in daily life.

    I remember having not been here in some time and reading innocently, then coming upon @ace13x kudu build. LOL. Closed the browser fast. Came back 15 seconds later and closed the browser again. But that build was quite the magnet. I think that I am done. Again. :)

    Brown shell is beautiful. Glad that it is a stock AE shell option.

    Received a delivery / weather exception notice from Fed Ex this morning which worried me,
    but they just dropped mine off.

    Work is in my way, what to do what to do.
