    The evidence was destroyed long ago! Scary part is I had the sweater vests to match!

    Tassel loafers, sweater vests, and tie dyed boots! This is going downhill fast!

    I'd rather hear about tie dyes and tassel loafers than what passes for country music these days.

    My dad made his living as a country musician, playing steel guitar in one honky tonk band or another from the late forties through the mid sixties, and he raised me on Bob Wills and Hank Williams. I don't even recognize most of what passes for country music these days as country music. I can't imagine what he'd think of it.

    I've probably posted these here before, but here's Dad's old Texas brand eagle peewees. He wore these on stage when he was playing music, and later on in the 70s and 80s wore them to plow the fields at my granddad's farm. It took a LOT of leather conditioner just to keep these from disintegrating. I credit (or blame) these for my own long time obsession with all things cowboy boot related.[​IMG]

    Honky Tonk is my favorite form of music, and almost all of my truly favorite songs include a steel guitar, unless they are acoustic or bluegrass songs.

    I don’t even listen to the radio any more - the “country” stations just pi$$ me off. Luckily digital music and USB ports in newer vehicles make it easy to listen to my favorite “oldies”.

    No boot pictures to offer, unfortunately, but your dad sounds like a guy I would have loved to have met!

    Sounds like a cool dad that introduced you to great music and boots! So many of the new, so called country bands have neither a fiddle or steel guitar. It just ain't right!

    What? Not a FL/GA Line fan?

    Fortunately, I can still pick up this radio station. A true gem among the crap being offered across the airwaves.

    When in town it's music on the phone, Pandora or the Chris Stapleton CD that was in the truck when I bought it.

    I've tried to watch the "country" music award shows the past couple of years, but I ended up yelling at the TV.

    These shows and the current "country music" radio stations make me feel like the old guy on one of Hank Jr.'s early videos - "You ain't country!" Except I say it with more emphasis most of the time.

    Just became the proud owner of these vintage Noconas! The teenage son of a friend of mine inherited them from his grandfather, but they're now too small for the boy. I'm flattered he thought to give them to me, of all people! When I saw the size, I initially thought it wouldn't work -- they're 11EE, while I wear 11D. But I just couldn't say no, and I must admit, with 2 pair of socks they actually fit pretty good!

    Been quiet here of late, so....just saw this on Ebay, late Lama's, what, no heel counter? There actually looks to be an internal counter but still they look like the would not fit well, heel slipping and such...just looks incomplete.

    I've seen that type before there's a similar pair of El Rey's that's been on the bay a long time. It's essentially a triad w/o the back panel/heel counter part. I'm not a fan but there is an internal heel counter.

    This is probably out of order but what the hell.......in a forum on men's issues a fellow posted about being overly emotional since his son was born. He could not help himself bursting into tears every time a song about fathers and sons came on his country and western radio station. He wanted to know if this was a problem and if so how to stop. Men in all their brilliance provided him with great input BUT the best were the replies that succinctly told him to stop listening to country and western music.....problem solved!

    Out of Greg Carmack's shop, a collaboration with leather artist Katie FioRito. No paints, all leather dye on the shaft panels. Unique scallops.
