Fortune favours us a second time... i wear a size 9 like you.I wear size 9, 9-1/2 and sometimes 10 depending on the shoe. This forum is completely awesome. I've been a "lurker" for some time now. I should have said hello sooner .
I'd be willing to part with one of my pairs of Charles Street boots... PM me.

You could mess about with sanding it some, but I think I'd do that after you paint it. After all it's bound to be lighter on the inside and you'd want that to contrast with the darker shade you're painting it.I decided to go with a WW2 Colt 45 shoulder holster which is the more reddish brown color. It is a reproduction and not an original so it will definitely needed to be weathered. Should I sand it lightly too?
