    Anyone here have experience with pig bristle brushes? I picked up a few from Hanger Project and I am not sure what I think. I have always used Saphir horsehair brushes. The pig bristles are slightly stiffer than the horsehair but I feel like is see the streaks of the bristle more than the horsehair.

    Speaking of brushes. I've mainly used the $10-$15 horse hair brushes so far. Are the $75-$125 brushes worth the investment? Anybody have a "must have" brush that gets those famous MacShines?

    See Ya,
    Steve

    That is unfortunate, they look good. From the Shoe Mart?

    Would it be reasonable to sell a pair of the Alden unlined chukkas (including shoe trees and shipping) for $500? They are brand new, barely worn twice to find out they weren't a fit for me.

    You can list them for as much as you want. Check my sig and you'll see it's not so easy to find a buyer
