    Happy New Year, boys!

    Thanks Mike for the great first posts.

    This is one of my fave threads on here because many of you are responsive to questions, post some great shoe parn, are ready to give praise, and give some great tips about our footwear. An example, someone recently mentioned that Aram can swap out the metal shank for a wood one on request. Thanks! I plan to take advantage of this on my first resole.

    I have been blessed to acquire some rare shell in the 2015 and hope this continues this year.

    I guess subconsciously it is not meant to be!! My pocketbook disagrees, however!

    Happy New Year everyone! Awesome lead in @mdubs. Read through it even though I've read it many times.

    Was doing a little Mac breakin this evening on my latest acquisitions and noticed how different my 2 new Color 8s are. Alt Weins are very recent from Epaulet. King PCTs are brand new but from a 2014 run. I am very pleased with their color out of the box and one of the reasons I pounced when I was in DC.

    (Oh, and apologies for the Bostonian shoe trees, one of my very first dress shoes. Shoes long gone, still use the trees until new Alden trees show up. I also still have the box they came in, houses shoe care products.)

    Holding off on new purchases will be tough. But hopefully holding to the awesome makeups I've already committed to.

    On another note the latest cigar is quite the bloomer.
