    Like the shoes, but a Golden Retriever should have won. Just my "totally impartial" opinion.

    Here you go, the bench they are on is a cream color and photos are IMG_1906.jpg IMG_1907.jpg IMG_1908.jpg with iPhone and incandescent light. Sorry for the golden retriever hair on the boots, it's shedding season!!!! And I vacuum 3X per day.

    I was hesitant to take the plunge for snuff suede, as I wanted a lighter color, similar to Allen Edmonds Acorn Caen boot. These really fit the niche I was looking for, nicer color than the Caen - not to dark, not to light. Perfect for jeans or chinos. As I have told Adam at AOC, I wish I hadn't waited so long in life to start Aldens.

    I relate to your mindset. I have saxophones that were made in 1928 and 1957. Its fun to remind myself of that when I’m feeling long in the tooth at 39...

    Ha! Gilby.. Camo Cords are Lucky Brand from a few years back... I like how they pair with Regina Grain Brass Eyelet JCrew boots.. two different grains so to speak in texture..

    Finally… black shell captoe boots. I’ve wanted these for 10 years. They were cheaper then. :brick:

    Commando! I really like that for a rubber sole, just the right amount of grip, but not in-your-face like a full lug.

    I feel like we missed a cheesy pun asking if Chip's boots had commando to match the camo pants.
