    I like the cigar tassels. May get them if the 13d NST lace up on Aberdeen fits OK. I think they look fantastic! See Ya, Steve

    Thank you. I appreciate the recommendations, thoughts & the posted illustrations:
    Glad I checked before applying any products to my boots.

    Thanks for the complements Uncle. I aspire to have a collection that rivals yours...some day. I think I've got a good start for only being in the game 4 months.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    I just can't get into chukkas. They look like elf slippers to me. More for you guys.

    I'll start off with Tan for the summer and time it to get the Snuff for fall.

    Well if you wear snuff with black pants they are bound to look odd.

    Same here. Whenever I see chukka I think of Will Ferrell in that Elf movie. But, I also think there's a time and a place for chukkas. Maybe I'll change my mind someday. I used to dislike NST's but now I like them

    While I don't care for David Beckham, I think this particular ensemble is pretty cool. I believe his pants are navy, which looks perfectly fine with more navy, and snuff suede chukkas.

    Haven't posted any pics lately, so I wanted to show some J. Crew x Alden Ravello love.

    As much as I love this makeup, yesterday I wore my Leffot 975s with the antique trim, and I'd have to rate those a bit above these.

    Today's BB 30% corporate sale seems to be working on cordovan and even EG's.
    You can also get a free one year Shop Runner account via most Amex cards so free 2nd day ship with BB.

    Sign up for BB corporate discount here
    http://lite.corporateperks.com/coupons/brooks-brothers/discount/590043/uSource/MGAT/2x-points-30-off
    At the BB site, enter "Corporate Perks" as the company name.
    If you already have a BB account, create a new account to use with your corporate discount code or you're going to need to call them.
    Also, when you're checking out, you won't see the discount amount until the last page after you've entered payment info but before you hit Submit Order.

    You can also get the BB corporate account via BMWCCA.

    The Alden natural CXL tassels were tempting but I just bought a couple Gatsby shirts and a shoe brush.

    Cool photo from Leffot's tumblr... The longwing in snuff suede looks very good... I highly recommend at least one non-cordovan longwing for casual wear (chromexcel or suede)

    I second the snuff suede chukka

    I think tan works better for the PTB or the loafer as suggested by hkpm

    I wish the suede PTBs on NeedSupply were tan and not snuff...I'd have an order in by now!

    Frans Boone has a snuff suede parajumper boot and a marble suede Indy boot up online... A lot of sizes are available in the marble suede (I would have considered it if 9.5E was available).
