    @mdubs -- great looking BB wing tips, Mike! I'm glad you were able to track those down. Every now and then your pictures have me second guess my decision to stick with the 974.

    I will add: BB has, at times over the years, offered a non-Horween color 8 cordovan attache case at $4k (still over $2k during SA sale), and the price of this gorgeous bag from the Bureau makes clear just how ridiculously overpriced the BB one is.

    When I see this bag, and other large items made of rare shell colors, I can't help but think that it should have been two pairs of shoes instead.

    Thanks for sharing, most if us have "whiskey shell fever." I think it's fair game here.
    I only wish the bag was a bit larger, it's roughly:
    17' x 10' x 9' Purse size if you ask me. Then again, bigger would make it even more more more expensive.

    Looking great my brother! Enjoy your Leffot Tankers!!!


    Thank you my friend, I try to be as concise as possible to minimize scrolling and to save the poor scrolling fingers!


    My friend, I am glad that they made the journey safely, I am baffled those Whiskey PTBs last so long. An amazing color from 2001 that I have not seen replicated in the past 10 years. Enjoy them in the best of health my friend!


    They are still there! Looking good Chris!


    Terrific looking Indy Boots!


    Wow, the Color 8 Wingtip Boot Saga continues. Love the Commando sole. From Alden NY?


    My friend, thank you very much! It was more luck and persistence. I happened to visit the shop and figured it never hurts to ask for a 10.5C and they had one! I then just waited and prayed that no one else bought them, and as I expected, no one did. So at the next Corporate Event, I snagged them at 30% off! :-D

    I have the 974 as well, they are great Balmorals as well. They have different spirits to them due to the different lasts, the agatine eyelets and the way that the Wingtip pattern is implemented.


    Looking spendid inyour Cigar PTBs, enough said!


    Despite the fact that I really can't tell what boot that is (Black Naval?) It is still a great looking boot and a unique use of your environment. :)


    Saz, those are terrific, you did well by Tom!


    That just made me laugh, nice work!

    Dang, that bag is AMAZING. I would never be able to use it though for fear of getting a wrinkle or crease in it. That is terrific, thanks for sharing.

    I am actually in the hunt for a new laptop bag, but that is beyond my price range. I had something more in mind with a CXL main part with some Shell accents... Thought that would be super cool... We will see!
