    Mac, I'm extremely honoured to have received an acknowledgment from your esteemed personage. You've influenced a lot people on this website. Myself especially. I've gone from hobbiest to enthusiast in a short period of time. The inspiring photos featuring the coolest shoes and ever present argyles are one of the main reasons I keep coming back to SF. It's not just the quality of Alden shell cordovan shoes which are attractive. It's the people who wear them that make collecting fun. Cheers and kudos Uncle. Your definitely the "Mac Daddy" of them all. Peace!

    Just a warning when storing your waterlock soled shoes. Don't let the soles touch other lighter colored leather. I tossed a pair of brand new LWBs in the closet which happened to fall onto a pair of white golf shoes (a virgin pair of vintage Foot-Joy Classics for those golfers reading this). The area where the waterlock touched the golf shoes turned purple :fu:

    I've currently got said area covered with corn starch in hopes it pulls some of it out.

    I have 7 pairs of the Footjoy classics (4 are the dry premiere). Best golf shoes ever... they were my gateway shoes that got me to appreciate the leather soled shoe with the different colored edge. Nothing like the all white, bal PT with the lighter brown edge; a true classic! It's a shame they do not make them anymore... [​IMG]

    Good luck with the clean up!

    FYI, Alden NYC has some new non-cordovan makeups - grain LWB on crepe (similar to the Leffot version) and a brown calfskin PTB on double leather (I actually like this version a lot, though I have yet to purchase it)

    My friend, I do not mean to be overly critical but those trousers are too long.

    Did you end up getting the Epaulet makeup too? I'm loving the Leydon so much - wore them back to back w/ my Barrie LWBs and was amazed at the difference. Enjoy wearing them!
    FWIW, w/ my NatCXL Indys, if you get a tree that really fills the toebox and pay special attention to brushing them out after every wear, the wrinkles won't ever become overly obvious.



    Truth.



    This is the one I've used for reference in the past; although in my experience Tremont marks the line between TTS and -.5, rather than Grant.

    Saphir renomat has worked well for me. Kirby/Hanger Project sells it.
