Necromancy +1.
The Aevig Huldra blue. Beautiful, beautiful watch. I'll post more pics when I take some better photos. Exceptional packaging for this price range imo.

Santoni Goodyear line suede double monks. Beautiful feel to the suede, very soft and smooth. Unfortunately these are too big for me. :(
EDIT. I'm actually selling these on Grailed: https://www.grailed.com/listings/736816-Santoni-NIB----Santoni-Goodyear----Blue-Suede-Double-Monks Mention you came from Massdrop and we can work out a nice deal. :) Also, if I'm not supposed to be posting links to my own classifieds please let me know so I can remove this.

@IanAnderson Would it be okay for me to link to a Grailed listing here? Or even SF for that matter?
Plain toe derby in suede by Carmina on the Simpson last.
My first Carmina!
Also, curtains! :'D

I have had an outstanding Father's Day... Not only am I the proud father of two fantastic boys, I am also the recipient of two of the items in the photo I've included: the Chris Reeve Inkosi folder, and the KEF MUO Bluetooth Speaker (I had one, and now I have a pair, for the sake of stereo). And I can't say enough about both of those items, as well as my wife, Kelly. Stunning, across the board!

I like that hat. I really want something like this, but in more of a stone color.

100% handmade - Horween Chromexcel Cordovan - Cats Paw - Light Blue accent stitching - Made by Al's Attire here in SF.
Finally picked up my first pair of Aldens. Snuff suede wings on the barrie last. Easily the softest suede I've handled, though I only have Carmina and AE to compare it to. Did size down by half a size and that was definitely the right thing to do.

If I ever own shell, there are only really three shoes that come to mind: 1) Alden color #8 PTB 2) Alden black PTB 3) RL Marlow shortwing bluchers -- the last one I know Ian has. Been buying a lot more suede lately though than plain calf.

I some some shell incoming soon that should be interesting...it will definitely appear in this thread when it arrives.
I haven't received it yet but I am extremely excited for the arrival of my new Yellow 108 Eastwood hat.

Great company with great people behind them. Their looks are really stylish and they don't break the bank either. Nice one, Blake! :)
I had a good lunch today which I purchased with my money. I have found that eating regularly is a very important part of being alive.

I see what you did there.

Did you have dessert?
My Yanko double monks in burgundy on the 915 last; this has probably taken the place of my favorite pair.

Nice; from what I've heard quality of Carmina and Yanko are very comparable, Yanko price is better though. I don't have personal experience with Carmina (yet) but I have a pair incoming.
That said, I'm very happy with my Yanko pair. The leather is nice and takes a shine very well (as can be seen in the photo). I also absolutely love this last - it has a narrow waist that looks great, even though I say so myself. :)
I certainly hope so. Yanko, Carmina, Meermin branch from the same family business (from what I've learned online). Having handled Meermin Linea Maestro, I can say the Yanko felt a bit better to me but then it's also a bit more expensive. There's also Andres Sendra which is exactly the same price range as Yanko. I've seen / handled one of Andres Sendra's patina pairs, it was really good too.
I think skolyx.se and Patine.pl (which are the only two online store fronts I know of that stock Yanko currently ... *hint* *hint* *wink* *wink* @IanAnderson) are doing a good job but I feel that their clientele is mostly limited to StyleForum members. I know that skolyx was started by a StyleForum member (Emil).
@RonRider was also supposed to carry Yanko at one point: "We'll see what happens ... may be Fall of next year before there is a broad selection here, but I am putting my name and door knocking efforts behind them, as well as stocking a selection of shoes." ... but I'm not sure what transpired eventually.
Yanko's own customer service is pretty lacking, from my experience - I never got replies to my queries. Skolyx was great and prompt with all my queries though (we exchanged more than 100 emails, literally. I'm a nightmare customer). Andres Sendra was very good with answering my questions as well.
where's that sweet jacket at?
