    Sherman Brothers doesn't seem to have changed its pricing yet. Not as wide a selection as The Shoe Mart, though.

    I spent all my elbow grease to get rid of the polish buildup on this shoe.


    The shoe is 7 years old.

    The pictures are made on a normal daylight, next time when the sun comes it out I will capture the beautys in the sun.

    nice. I got a drill for Xmas, I'm planning on picking up a buffing wheel as was posted a while back, see if I can use that work off a good bit of grime from an old pair

    I noticed some price changes to some of their stock items, however, it seems that the majority of shoes are still at the same price.

    Barrie is definitely bigger, but different for different people. I wear 8.5D barrie boots and 8.5D hampton shoes. Barrie shoes are to loose in the heel and more of a rectangle for the shape of the shoe.

    Apropos of nothing (well, ok the posting about the sale Color 8s at Orvis was the prompt)...

    Many of the people who seem to always be on the lookout for the cheapest of the Alden "standards" (the LWBs, the LHSs, etc. in black and color 8) are the first to bitch when they can't get a limited release from Tom or Steven. Ever think to buy your Alden standards (yes, at full retail) from them? Might improve your standing when it comes time to allocate the limited releases in the rare colors. You're sure as shit not getting a whiskey, ravello or cigar boot from Orvis or J. Crew (yeah, I know, you have a friend who knows a guy who heard from his UPS driver that J Crew is getting a ravello boot).

    Rant over.

    I dunno about Mr K's cap toes. I think in a really small size the cap toe is too compresed.
