    Uncle, nice looking ravello monks! I really enjoy seeing them.

    Speaking of everyone's favorite uncle, while I can get some of my Aldens to look pretty great via the Mac method, some of them just persist in looking lived in no matter what i do - dents, dings, scratches and the like.

    One of them is my natural CXL plain toe boots, which i beat to hell pretty consistently and have all but given up babying in any way. [​IMG]


    Anyone else have this issue? Some of my shell shoes (the ones i wear to death, anyways) seem to have dings/dents/nicks on them too that no amount of Mac method-ing can cure. Anyone else in the same boat? If so, do you consider it a problem or just part of the charm of the shoes?

    nephew,
    thank you
    on dings, dents and nicks- consider wax polish on the spots

    I just pre-ordered the Burnished Tan (Cognac) Calfskin Wing Tip Boots from J. Gilbert; does anyone have any pics of them in the wild?
    Thanks -
