    That would be me! Seriously, put them on one morning, went to JAX, long layover in ATL, then DTW with a missed connection, then on to LSE. Probably a 10 hour wear. They haven't been on feet since then.

    Can anyone tell me how to post pics? I read one of the "how to's" yet still ended up with hyperlinks instead of the pics

    Those are the same photos from this eBay listing that ended a week ago. What's the deal?

    I listed them as selling to US only. A person from Denmark asked if I would ship overseas and I said no (plus they had zero feedback). You can pull up the listing and see the email exchange. They decided to still bid and win even though I said no. Anyway, they wouldn't pay the extra shipping and I wouldn't ship n

    I did get the final value fee from eBay but it took over an hour on the phone.

    Fellas, how does the Modified last run compare to the TruBalance and Barrie? I know all 3 are suppose to be 1/2 bigger, but as far as nit picking goes...ie the TruBalance is a bit wider than Barrie.

    Thanks!

    Two new early Christmas gifts to myself. The Red Wing Beckman GT from J Crew. And Leathersoul Kudu Ultimate Indy. They both serve a different purpose and I couldn't be happier. [​IMG] I especially can't get over the unbelievable quality and craftsmanship of the Ultimate Kudu Indy. The leather is spectacular.[​IMG] They look so much better in person. I emailed Horween to ask about the Kudu leather and they said the Kudu is a version of their Chromexcel leather.

    So, who picked up the Cigar Plaza Wingtip boots on the 'bay? Those are gorgeous.

    And who's going to pick up the Cigar Barrie Wingtip boot?

    Finally got a chance to wear a couple pairs. Wore the J. Crew Longwings yesterday to lunch for about 2 hours and got 3 compliments in that duration. Today, I'm rocking the 405 Indy's. The Indy's definitely feel a bit looser than the Longwings, but nothing to write home about. Both are size 8 (Barrie, TruBalance, respectively). How often do you guys clean your shoes? After each wear? Even if there is no stains/scratches/etc? I'm addicted to Alden now. I have 2 more pairs on my radar. [​IMG]
