    Does this mean you think someone who wears a 11.5 in the barrie 9901 should get a 12 barrie boot?

    No, in fact some find the Barrie boot roomier than the shoe.

    ^ I absolutely LOVE your Unionmade tassels man. [​IMG] Thank god they have long sold out of my size.

    Mac, as always great shells. I'd love to see a collection post at some point but we all know that would require you to take a week off of work. [​IMG]


    thank you

    Indeed, but the Mac method is posted and reblogged all over SF.

    In a nutshell, the mac method calls for NO polish but instead emphasizes the value of cleaning cordovan shoes with a damp cloth, followed by vigorous horsehair brushing and buffing with a flannel cloth--the guiding philosophy being that cordovan is naturally lustrous and that colored paste will eventually dull the natural sheen of the leather

    ^They would look great above your wall of Alden's at the Waikiki store.


    Arizor: As mentioned, fantastic boots! Could you snap some more pictures of them so we could see all the character those have? [​IMG]



    For me today...

    Thanks again to Tom for the great make-up and thanks to REguy/Jason for trading me for a pair that fit MUCH better than my previous pair. We both won! [​IMG]
