    how many wears does it generally take for the heel slippage to go away from an lhs? i went with my barrie size more or less (7.5d, truly 7e but i figured the difference would be negligible) and now i'm starting to think i may just have the wrong size since it's still pretty bad.

    Holiday whiskey selection includes Knob Creek smoked maple bourbon, Green Spot Irish Whiskey, Sons of Liberty Pumpkin spice, just sayin` - plus the usual suspects for entertaining
    Hopefully, I find my favorite tie before then.

    Thanks Tifosi, I passed on the Leffot Naval #8, but when I saw these I was drawn to them, and when they still had my size available, I saw it as a calling.... :D

    Anyone else get their DC 'Trippers yet? Would love to see them in natural light, that should help to carry me over till my Leffots arrive.

    based on the new boots shipping, I think everyone is staring at their bank accounts in horror.

    For those who ordered something from Fransboone in the past, how much was shipping to the US + UPS fees? I'm wondering if the brass eyelets are worth the premium.

    Mine are in my closet. Keep waiting to sneak looks at them when the wife isn't around. Sad, I know.

    Not ravello, but a nice calf substitute. This was my gateway to my Alden shell addiction...
