    Do you really believe that? To quote al Pacino from the Godfather III " just when I think I'm out....they pull me back in ".

    ravello chukka
    ravello lwb
    cigar lwb

    plus the thor boot if it comes to fruition, but I dont count that lol..

    from there, may dip into suede options but doubtful..

    will then just grab some calf/CXL stuff from LS or moulded here or there..

    shell pricing is getting out of hand for me tbh

    thanks englade321, I think nordstroms carries that brand. I'll give them a try next time I go.
    be, I'm hooked on epaulet. I met Mike at a trunk show in los angeles, he is a very nice guy.
    slippery slope is right rydenfan. I want 1 or 2 nice pairs of jeans, i'm afraid of finding out too much about denim and ending up with yet another expensive habit.

    thank you all for your advice.

    It is getting a bit ridiculous I have the ravello chukkas already but I would trade them for color four cap toes. Someday I suppose.

    ^ Epaulet is set to release a new denim option next month :)

    Not sure of the details yet, but if you like their stuff I'm sure they will be good.

    k, not sure where to score the ravello you're looking for, but have you tried AofC for the cigar lwb? I bought 8.5D from him about 2 months ago. At that time, he wasn't advertising his stock of cigar lwbs on the website...

    Best of luck in finding the shells!

    LOL ... Too funny, I'm getting those weird looks too, with occasional inquiries as to "how's the cult doing today?"... So, to not add further to it... I discretely purchased a Beck shoe polisher and installed it in our office mens room (of course in addition to the one I have had at home for years) ... But even with the Beck's I still enjoy hand brushing morning and evening (not yet ready to take the car plunge yet though)...

    Uncle, your are correct... But I have been attaché free for many years now (thanks to all this new and powerful compact technology we enjoy), but do keep a pair of galoshes, along with a couple of umbrellas, in my car (which would have served me well today... Nonetheless, I was prepared and equipped!) I think I need to rethink my preparedness plan and contingencies...

    nah, I tried there, checked with yenni, and kathy in DC. no one has any of the rarer colors in LWB (atleast in my size)

    IIRC, Adam said he very rarely order Barrie lasted shoes above sz 11 too (i need 11.5)

    i did forget to check with Madison and AldenSF, guess I'll shoot them emails too
