    Nobody rocks the light denim/color 8 combo quite like you Chip. Nicely done.

    Stopped by Brick + Mortar in downtown Seattle yesterday and kopped these tan/brown country calf Saddles. Yenni is killing it so far with her makeups. I also got on the list for some shell dover bluchers. Pics:

    I used to feel the same way, until I got a pair of Whiskey PTBs. Changed my opinion completely. Now I really want a Cigar plain toe boot.

    They don't always photograph well, but I think it's a lovely style, especially in Whiskey.

    Those look just like my AE Sheltons.

    I felt the same way about the PTB, until I began to appreciate it for its simplicity.

    When I first started wearing shell cordovan there was this old timer who had been wearing cordovan shoes longer than I am old and he told me; "There is no greater canvas on which to paint the beauty of shell cordovan than the Plain Toe Blucher..."

    Ever since I been a sucker for them. I NEED a #8 PTB with a badness...

    That was fun, but it was more about sharing new ideas with You gents than wearing the shoes themselves (cue pomp and circumstance) I find the Enzo and Vass threads to be just as fun.

    Though they're not my preferred choice, I don't really mind plain toe boots, and I actually love chukkas... it's just something about the aesthetic of a low plain toe shoe that seems unappealing.

    I hear you on that my brotha

    I feel you on EB and Vass too, thats why I enjoy their stuff so much.

    You should see the faces of the people at the Grad School I attend when they ask where they can get a pair of boots like mine and then I say they were a special makeup that I designed myself...

    The first night I wore my mahogany EB boots one of my best friends was straight up gawking at them and he was like; "Someday I'm gonna have a pair of boots like that..." And when he said it he didn't even blink but just kept staring at my boots...classic...
