    Wow, some incredible rare birds flying around this forum. @gilby , dude, wow! 2 in 1 day. Plain toe anything is always great but those cigars are instant classics. @Misterg12 , very nice bookends you have there. Grant last, flat welt, man, very nice. Nothing rare about @patrick_b 's AF53's, but man, that is as good as it gets.

    Nothing new for me, but I did get my whiskey LHS's back from repair.

    Very pleased with the repair. Still not thrilled with the refinishing but I knew the risk of sending lighter shell in for a recraft. No complaints.

    Lastly, what's missing from this picture. Would not mind if some Ravello flew my way. If not, I'm very happy with my modest family.

    Stunning lineup.
    You’ll be hard pressed to find ravellos or anything else that look as good as your whiskey.

    I am more annoyed that they literally plagerized my narrative. All done without asking me.

    Kid duty all day today - it can be exhausting with a 3 and 5 year old!

    Natty CXL tankers for a stop to the liquor store (whiskey reload) and to grab pizza. I hope you gents are enjoying your weekends!

    They look great! I’ve owned a lot of Whiskey Shell throughout the years. They all darken with time and these look exceptional Shawnc. Nice repair work.. can’t tell anything out of order, beautiful shoe. Wear and enjoy in good health my brother..

    Any of you have the LeatherSoul Vintage Indy? I would love to see pics and hear war stories about its durability. Cheers!

    Gotta respect a man that effectively uses CXL to acquire Whiskey.

    Just tried the new DC NST boots and it was great! Really can not turn down the temptation of NST boots.

    Have a great weekend gents! 834D227D-B6CF-4625-8753-140A5550CB7F.jpeg

    Little maintenance (aka damp cloth and brushing) for the natty indy boots today. These are my work horse boots, construction site etc. All the mud/dust etc comes off easy. Unfortunately the dark stains on thes sides are from my desk chair rubbing. Any advice on getting these out? Crazy that the white collar part of my job is the toughest on my footwear.
