    Ah, fair enough. Others may disagree, but I understand this approach.

    Ugghhhh!

    I am waiting on a pair of #8 chukkas to arrive from AoC and they are not due to drop onto my porch until Wednesday. I am by no means complaining about the shipping (I just placed the order Friday). I am just noting that I really want them to be on my feet now! I have quite a few pair of high-end shoes/boots but cannot recall the last time I was so giddy with anticipation. Oh well... the wait will just make them that much more appreciated when they do arrive.

    As for today - #8 NST tanker boots from Context Clothing, paired superbly with some red trousers. I knew I would need the extra splash of color when I saw how dreary today would be:

    I like the red getting into photos the past few pages (thinking also of Uncle Mac's recent post). This combination looks great M P



    Very interesting comparison. Have you had the chance to try on a shoe on the Oscar last?
