    ReppTieMaster,

    I am totally with you. That same issue always surfaces whenever I see another's pair of shells... Sorry about instigating the Cigar LHS craze for you. Happy hunting.

    Too big for me. I actually am an 11B on the Aberdeen Loafers. You may try calling Alden DC about Whiskey SWB. They may have your size.

    Those Whiskeys are so beautiful. I really am looking forward to acquiring some one day... Enjoy your dinner and best of luck convincing the wife to allow you to expand your collection...

    Burnished tan is very underrated. I really like the burnished tan SWB (also available at Epaulet), but my wife would have a cow if she saw another "brown pair of shoes" delivered to our doorstep. However, she would be pleasantly surprised at how much cheaper they are compared to most (of the shells) that show up!

    My friends, I just had an epiphany... [​IMG]

    By all means, please continue with your outstanding contributions. The pics looked very professional. Maybe some of these shoe dealers will catch a glimpse and request your services. We all know most could use the help.

    Cousin, thank you for the kind words. We could all use that kind of good fortune. Luckily for me though, in my wife and daughter, I have found and possess my grails. (pretty cheeeesy I know, but true)

    You wear those well rtp. Great looking shoes, nice shine too. I have similar conversations with my wife regarding brown shoes every couple of months. I also wear my tremonts, plaza, grant, and alden for bb true to size.

    Where's a good place to pick up the tools and products necessary for the mac method? My order for my first pair of shells comes in a month or two and it's time to get ready :D

    I get all my cloths and brushes from Allen Edmonds due to their pricing, quick turn around, and free shipping. Also their stuff is high quality.

    I get my Alden paste wax from Alden DC or SF direct or from ShoeMart.
