    So I think my pair of tankers will have to go back to Alden to have some bad eyelets replaced. I can't seem to get them to stay fixed on my own. Just curious how long to expect Alden will have them? I'll contact them next week but thought I'd ask others experiences

    i'm having a hard time adhering to the 1-in 1-out policy these days. I have very few pairs that I don't really like. Granted, I don't wear every pair all that often but even those that get minimal wear hold a special place in my heart.

    :violin:

    I have 4 pre-orders from '15 scheduled to arrive in 2016 and 2 pre-orders from 2015 still awaiting Confirmation.

    Other than that, there's only one other pair on my radar for this year.

    Let's see how I hold to that strategy...

    You should wear these more often. They deserve it. They are glorious.
    Your Ultimate Indys are looking good and have a nice patina on them. Love the socks!
    Those same olds are looking very good. Something about the color of Chamois is really beautiful and full of character.
    Looking great in your new Tankers. The Color 8 on Antique Tanker is a splendid combination.
    I got my PCT Balmoral the same way. Lovely shine on them and yes Shell rocks!
    That's a superbly done glamor shot BK! Those Ravellos are looking good and ready to rock!
    Concur. Recommend periodic cleanings with a nano session after they have dried. That is if you want them to look clean. Working the edges also tends to go a long ways.
    I think it will take a few weeks, but no historical basis for that statement.
    Good luck with that Joe. ;-) -Mike

    Thank you everyone for all of your kind posts about the first post. Took me surprisingly little time to copy over from AoSD. :)

    Mike deserves a Mayor of Aldenville title or some such moniker.

    Nice! Love the Ravello with dark edges. I find this shot a little more boudoir than glamour. Suggestive erotica

    Thanks @mdubs for the time and effort!! You are very much appreciated here good sir! [​IMG]

    My first post on this thread is of my favorite boot (Ravello Wingtip boot a la TSM). Going to pick up my wife's New Year gift (new car) and celebrate with some alone time/dinner.

    All the best to a healthy and prosperous new year my friends... enjoy and wear often in the best of health!

    Great shine job. [​IMG] If I wore more conservative business suits, I would have picked up a #8 bal a long time ago.
