    These were delivered yesterday. Tough to beat that new-leather smell!

    Sherman Ranger Mocs from Rancourt. Bison leather in chocolate. Lactae Hevea crepe soles which are super comfortable.

    Very handsome footwear. I hope you enjoy your Sherman Ranger Mocs as much as I have enjoyed mine. May you long wear them DashingMan and may you do so only in good health!

    Not quite brand new - their second outing, after a shoe shine . . .

    This arrived today. Hope to get good pics this weekend. I had no idea leather could be so soft. EG's Utah is unreal.

    You are slow dripping these out to us - can't wait to see them. And congrats, that's a wonderful brand.

    Any photos taken with my phone would do them no justice! They deserve the Nikon treatment. There should also be a way to capture the smell of the leather. It's amazing.

    ^^^^ :D You tell him crusty!

    Safe arrival of the Carlos Santos chukkas today.

    Initial impressions are highly positive. The quality of the suede surpasses the price point here - very smooth, even and fine nap. I have two pairs of Carmina suede boots and these seem very close in quality. Perhaps the material for the uppers (suede and lining combined) is slightly less than that of the Carminas. But the net benefit is light weight.

    Very nice lines to the last. This is, within the CS lineup, a fairly rounded last - but it doesn't look remotely blobby to my eyes.

    Overall a job very well done.

    Those look nice @RogerP.

    The real question is if you had those Santos, a pair of Bonafe, and a pair of Vass all lined up in an identical shade of suede (let's assume 74945 last on the Bonafe and F-last on the Vass), which are you choosing?

    Well there's no doubt that Vass and Bonafe are the nicer shoes - which they should be for twice the price.

    No way I could pick between Vass and Bonafe though - not on chukkas anyway - too close to call. With a gun to my head I may go Bonafe if the material is suede - theirs is the nicest I've seen this side of St. C / EG / G&G.

    EG shows how hand burnishing is to be done.

    Purchased these Alden Long Wings yesterday. Posted in another thread but I didn't know this thread existed. Still deciding on which laces to use. IMG_2645.JPG

    I saw your post about those Alden's. Such a classic. Barrie last?

    Is the lace on the right shoe darker? That would probably be my preference.

    Yes on the Barrie--11D. I'm leaning toward the darker laces, as well.

    I am in love with these shoes. Any comments on how they fit?
