A couple of new to me shoes after adding topys. Tassels looked great before but my cobbler does such a good job of not just adding the topy but rebuilding the sole. The LHS's needed it so I decided to have the splits done as well......

I typically have to clean some polish off the shell afterwards but otherwise he does an incredible job. Here's a family shot that highlights why I love the LHS's even though they have flaws. The color is just incredible.......

And finally, the splits on feet.....

Happy Tuesday gents!
Does anyone have these shell whole cuts from B&M in either #8 or black? I want to see how they look broken in.
A whole cut looks great new, but I wonder how it ages with the normal shell ripples. I'm considering adding a pair of black shoes to my collection in addition to my 901s. I like the Plaza last and was thinking black shell, so these seemed to be a good option as long as they maintain their style over the years.

4 wears in. There's someone else with a #8 pair, possibly the ones on Aberdeen.

I think they're going to stay looking lovely. I generally have rolls like this, though, so if you typically have lots of rolls on Plaza I'd expect the same.
Also note Yenni nailed it telling me to half down from my laced plaza size. (These are 11EE like my Van/TB/Barrie rather than 11.5EE)
I've had one plaza shoe roll like crazy (thinner shell I assume), which is also a plain toe:

Not my normal shot, but non-boot Tankers...
Back from factory restoration. Other than some polishing and brushing, Alden didn't do anything to the uppers. They still look like aged cigar. New sock liners, new soles.
My only question is whether or not to get lulu taps before I wear them. My normal wear pattern is toe wear and outer heel, but the toe damage seems to vary by last and maker - some are worse than others. I have them on one pair of EG and they have been a nice addition, although walking on concrete felt a little odd at first.

Decided the rock the cigar indys today
Trying out some round laces with the rest of the cool kids here... These are from Guarded Goods. A little heavy in the wax but I think I like them.
Guys, a few phenomenal days here! Looking great all around. A few great new additions and an always awesome Army.Even though I wore these Sunday with white RL chino cargo shorts .. I paired them once again today with the same short in yellow, black unlined LHSes are crazy versatile. Won't be much longer and the Unlined collection gets put away for next year and the Lined collection comes out next.. and BOOTS yeaView attachment 1239214
I have never seen the country tan on anything other than a boot. They look great. Alas, never to be seen again.
