So, opinion time. I have a chance to pick up a pair of brown scotch grain LWBs. I love the leather, but I have not seen them posted here before. Antique edges on commando from B+M. The top picture is the actual shoe. The bottom is from the website. Opinions?

Get them. If I could get Barrie to work, I'd have these for sure, and wear the heck out of them!

Have em and love em. Pics from last week. Also wearing them today. A bit casual but can be worn with trousers.View attachment 1229270View attachment 1229271
Those are great and a nice coincidence that you were wearing them today!


Crappy old iPad photo.. classic shoe no longer #8 BB UnlinedView attachment 1229277
Looking stellar in your King LHSes. Those are great wish I was able to find a pair.


Finished putting in a little elbow grease on the Ravello wtbs and really happy with how they turned out. Also swapped the laces and was able to get a few photos on a sunny day (initial ones were overcast near dusk). The color is stunning and I'm not sure the pictures do them justice.

Dude, those are looking great. Such a beautiful boot!


Doc, those Snuff Indy’s are just off the hook. Like the red rocks as well.


These new whiskey jumpers from the shoe Mart are quite dark, as far as whiskey goes. (At least my pair is). Here are some comparison pix with Ravello jumpers from ‘18.

Saz, your new Whiskey Jumpers are looking great and will make a nice addition to your collection.

OK, I know I'm almost 66 years old and that must be the reason, but I keep going to Adams "last chance" site and looking at the AoC-3 Navy and White saddle shoe. I don't need them at all, and would probably only wear them 1 or 2 times a year, but there is something about the white shoe with the blue accent that is "calling me". So the question is this, am I nuts or just old? Or both I suppose.
You may be nuts, and you're probably not getting any younger, but those are plain great-looking shoes. If my collection had more depth, I'd love to have them.

I've picked up a few pairs from Adam's last chance inventory. The discount lowers the risk of something I may not wear that often. Some have even been sold later at a slight profit (though that has never been my motivation). To me, you describe an ideal situation to pick up something really cool and different and if you don't wear them too often, at his price point, its not really that big a deal.

Man you've got some amazing color on those. Congrats.

I thought the same thing but then I did a comparison shot with some other whiskey and while I noticed some variation, it didn't seem out of the ordinary to me.......

Fantastic double dose of Whiskey right there Shawn! Your old and new Whiskey Boots are looking great!

DC finally cools down enough to wear anything but loafers and shorts! B+M plaza Indy's from 2016
Wow. Glad that it cooled down enough for you to wear those, because they are insanely awesome!

Just checking to see if there’s any interest in these Alden x Epaulet Brixton boots on Barrie size 10D. Acquired these from another forum member a couple years ago but they never quite made it out on a maiden voyage. Thanks!

Beautiful old Boots. Makes me wonder if that was the pair that I picked up for someone else many moons ago.
