    The shank does set off metal detectors. Whenever I go to the National Archives for research, I have to take off my shoes.

    Perfection.
    Great collection. Good job.
    I think even calf would be more than waterproof enough for most uses. Kudu and chamois will be even more so. Because the tongue is not integrated with the shoe that will be your point of failure. If you step in water that covers part of the tongue your feet will get wet.

    Obviously I don't know where he got his, but here are two places on the web for interesting colored shoe laces. Think the first is having a bit of a father's day discount as well.

    Fwiw, those are my Pitt boots in chamois, the conversion is excellent and the sole is exactly what I wanted (and what the boots wanted, IMO). Happy to answer any questions but highly recommend if you're considering.

    Finally got around to snapping some pics of my new Cigar Indy's from Alden SF.

    Oh and, a shameless plug: I just listed some calf wingtip boots from J Gilbert if anyone is interested [​IMG]

    Mark McNairy loafers! While not an Alden, they're awesome. I just ordered a pair in navy suede with yellow welting, I believe it's called the "Chick Magnet Loafer."
