    Great collection sir! You have a very nice variety going on there.

    I would probably keep the Cigar LWBs and the Marlows. The middle shoe seems to be a combo of the two with the color and edging and you already have a great SW Blucher in the Marlow.

    That Gianni looks beautiful.

    Then I remember it's a boot and very uncomfortable (to me at least)

    Boots are uncomfortable? Or Are normal width shoes uncomfortable? or is it the fucking unbearable humidity in general that bothers your existence?

    I don't like the feeling of having my ankles locked up.

    Don't wear odd jackets / slacks or anything really. Been living in a tee and rrl officer chinos pretty much past year


    Thanks! And yeah I like all three but need to cut a little


    Pricing is a bit too much for me, I'd get a EG pair over it, nice shoe though


    Left brown pair is Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Lindrick, older pair so a bit lighter in color, right pair is Alden Color 4 Cordovan Wingtip boot from The Shoemart


    3-4 more months :slayer:

    I personally would keep all 3 but I'm perhaps not the best person to ask.

    Why is there only one pair of green Carmina boots in the pics?

    Yeah they are different enough when you compare them

    And other pair is same so didn't put both?


    Too light for me, sold my Alden Whiskeys



    Thanks guys, loden is amazing, hopefully Carmina allows shell again. And no EG shell!!!


    Hoping the force brings them before Christmas
