I want to be like you when I grow up.
These were as clean as they get after a few years of neglect.
Then I had to get to my car.

This is awesome! Way to give those shoes a new life.
Unreal! I wanted to do something like this with an old pair of Hanover PTBs. Well done!
Maybe I'll do this with my Ravello NST boots since I don't seem to be wearing them...
And then keep the wallet in its box in your closet
You slay me.
I almost spit my coffee out, @Don L !
half the reason I bought a #4 wallet was b/c I knew I wouldn't be afraid to use it everyday - and I got to own #4! a shell wallet is a wonderful way of quelling some of that shell addiction. you can fairly easily buy shell wallets in some other unobtanium colors and varieties (from Horween too). #2, #4, #6, pebble grained, etc
My latest acquisition - arrived today. Cigar NST on the Aberdeen last. This run is actually from 2009 - the shade of Cigar on these is gorgeous!
Whiskey wingtip boots from TSM's 2nd's list. 379X last. Photo's taken under office lighting so doesn't capture the depth of the shell which is stunning. Boots include small scuffs (easily buffed out), lots of un-punched-out broguing and "R" stamps on the sole. Shells are clear, and the boots seem to be well matched in shade.
My only real complaint with these is the box that TSM provided. In my size (12.5D-13E) all Alden boxes are basically too small, which means my shoes (and especially the boots) usually come stuffed into a box which is bursting at the seams. This particular box provided by TSM is a complete joke - entirely destroyed on arrival by boots which are way too big for the box. I mean, I know these are 2nd's and all, but can't we have a better box for $599+ boots?
OMG I want!!!!
kickass boots! they are on the modified last btw
Pretty sure it was confirmed these were on 379X similar to modified. TSM said these where 379X.
Nice! Those look great. Funnily enough, I find that the TSM boxes are much sturdier than Alden boxes...
Yeah, they're the 379X last. These are from the 14oz Berlin run earlier this year, which was all E-widths and all on 379X. 379X is very similar to Modified, though. Slightly less banana-esque but still narrow heeled with a narrow waist and a wide forefoot.
