    Still amazed at how some of the boots are so well cared, when I bump, scratch, scuff my shoes the very first day I wear them

    That could be one of the greatest images on the internet.

    Cigar Indy?

    Personally, I would go with a darker color...Cigar or #8. Whiskey is not so versatile, IMO.

    Sorry for the PSA, but have slowly come to the realization that Barrie lasted shoes don't work for my feet. I have the long since sold out #4/Black saddle bluchers in size 10D from Leathersoul that I am parting with. Worn exactly 3 times to the office, they are in pristine shape. Looking to get $500 or best offer and can circulate pics. PM me if interested.

    My bet is he'll end up with a two tone toe box if he follows your suggestion - the finish is gone and needs to be restored, all the polish in the world won't do that. My 2 cents.

    RKD, tell me about it. None too happy. But you are right, someone else is going to luck out and I'd rather it be an Alden aficionado than some random Ebayer.
