    So many of these I love. These three made me smile the most. Thanks for the thoughtful post @ironclad . I think my future pics/posts need to include some high end repp ties. [​IMG]

    The most entertaining post I've read on this thread. Or the old thread for that matter. Well done @ironclad

    You got me, Mike! You got me.

    Thanks RTP!

    Tif, I'm blushing. I've read some great stuff on this thread over the years. Most of the best witty stuff comes from you.

    I'm not alone then.

    Thank Buda. So is it safe to say you don't live in in Hungary?

    Thanks DV.

    LS was a stretch for me. I got my foot in that door before the number of hardcore Alden buyers increased tenfold in recent years.

    Hope it was restful and the list didn't induce nightmares.

    Excellent. You must be the living embodiment of that guy.

    Thanks Rstldr!

    Right back at you. [​IMG]

    I was there was a bigfoot/sasquatch emoji.

    Truth!

    Thanks Dubsy! Hope your fingers are on the mend.

    Great story too. 30 pairs later...that is truly amazing.

    It's probably more of a "retirement home" for older horses than a traditional stable, if you catch my drift...

    Need some advice here - I want to replace the soles on my 990 to a plantation crepe sole. Who can do that well for a good price? I am in the New York area but am open to the option of shipping them elsewhere to get this done well and economically.

    Hi guys,

    Hope you're all having a nice long weekend.

    I had my boots and LWBs topy'd the other week so I've been wearing them now without fear of wearing down the toe. I am happy with the results.

    my version of @ironclad's list would include: "pay way, way to much to get a makeup from the foreign market."

    I have modified last cap toe boot currently en route from Anatomica. the ordering process has been fun in a weird way. trying to triangulate the details of the makeup between emails from Anatomica and forum posts. two calls to the store, having to wait a few days to actually place my order until the "guy with the paypal password" gets back in town. now tracking shipment when I have no idea of the expected delivery date. good times.
