Nicely faded! Need to get some updated fade pics of my own on here.
TBH, I'm desperately trying to preserve the eggplant color of these boots. I'll have to hit the vamp with some color 8 cordovan creme.

A little late to the party. A lot going on downtown Raleigh as a lot of you know but would not miss honoring Mac on this day. I came to SF towards the very end of his presence but learned a great deal from him. Mac will always be apart of my Alden experience. Rest In Peace Uncle.

So that's all just natural? Incredible

If you are able to preserve the eggplant color, let us all know how, EVERY pair I have of color 8 is fading to some degree.

Thanks for sharing this story!

Here's a good Mac story for you: One night, while up late, I made a post about my excessive alcohol consumption that day. The next morning I had a message from Mac telling me "Nephew, boasting about excessive alcohol intake in a public forum is not necessary" and that I should remove the post immediately. Needless to say I removed the post and learned a good lesson.
There's a lot of people that could benefit from a message like that!

Last one for tonight. 3 hours before midnight on New Years Eve, Uncle Mac is telling me to not spend money on expensive champagne but rather invest in a plan for my (then two year old) daughters college fund.

So I asked on facebook and came up with a few options and remembered I should check here too. That said:

Indy in brown country calf. What special makeups are out there for it? I know the one across the pond with the crepe sole but I'm curious what else is out there.
