Is that a pretty true to life color? That's like perfect in my book. Mine look good looking down while wearing, but when I look at them head on in my cabinet they have (to my eyes) a sickly natural leather color rather than a golden or even slightly reddish tone like yours.
Guys, I hope that you are all doing well and staying safe in what can only be described as the most interesting times...

@MrDV @JSO1 @sazon and I had a little brushing party today to have a little fun and break.

Can't wait for my pair! Hopefully the troubles of the world doesn't impact production too much, but if so I'll wait. They're only shoes at the end of the day.

The color on the Whiskey Tankers is pretty darn tooting true to color. I didn't edit the colors in any way on the shot, that is straight as processed on board my Nikon. The color on these is becoming nicer with time to be frank.

Yeah, the simultaneous brushing of the Ravello WT Boot may or may not have been planned... ;-)

Very cool. Unsurprisingly, they look brand new! (I noticed my Texan really came out with "yall all")

Glad to see you all exercised appropriate social distancing. Nobody wants to see the Four Cordovan Pillars toppled due to COVID-19.

Also, I’m guessing my invite was probably snared in my junk mail folder? I mean, asking for a friend...

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
