Leather Soul choco suede tankers today. Easily my favorite suede boots that I've owned and possibly my favorite shoes/boots overall.
They were indeed #8 and on the Barrie last. I cannot recall the rest of the details (and the blog post has since been removed from their site (I think it went up in January 2013)) but I think they were basically the same make-up as the picture that you posted.
I did 8 mile Monday morning with the temp at -12º and then 5 more this morning with them temp at -18º (these are Fahrenheit temps folks! ). Both days I decided to drive to the gym and use that as my starting and stopping point so I could jump right into the steam room afterwards. Next time I do that I might take my bathing suit so I can go into the hot tub for a while instead. This morning when I got into the locker room and started to undress I noticed that I had ice...
LS took a pre-order for another round of those in January 2013 which I am in on. I contacted them in 2014 to see the status and there was no end date in site. I imagine some of the folks who were in on the pre-order may have backed out by now so it might be worth checking with LS if they have any spots open in case these do ever arrive.At this point, I'm looking at my various pre-order deposits that I have floating around as a sort of Alden futures market.
Gorgeous!I've got a pair coming in from the Ends for Friends as well. I was planning on putting them in the closet before having them tailored next fall but this is making me rethink that decision.
I've thought about it and I always tell myself that if I ever sell all the ones I have listed here (plus a few more in my closets that I never wear) and clear out some space before the stuff from LS is available, I'll go ahead and buy the plain toe boot through AoC. That one in particular has been calling my name a bit harder lately.
Good question. Every retailer seems to be a bit different whether you are locked in at a price or not. I know Context and Leffot will lock you in at the price that the model is on the day they place the pre-order whereas I believe Epaulet does not. I'm not sure about LeatherSoul. FWIW I've just passed the two year mark on a couple pre-orders from LS (#8 Pitt Boot and #8 shortwing) with no delivery date in site. Thankfully, I only put $100 down on each one and I'm willing...
I'm not Polish, not even Catholic (I'm about as WASPy as they come) but Metropolitan Detroit has an absolutely MASSIVE Polish population and has since the mid 1800s. The city of Hamtramck, which is completely surrounded by Detroit, has been a landing point for Polish (and Kashubian) immigrants for generations and Detroit and Hamtramck both have some of the oldest Polish Catholic churches in the country - St. Joseph was founded in the 1850s as a German Roman Catholic church...
I had these AWWs repaired by Alden for a defect a couple of years ago and just now noticed that the footbed now says "Alden Restoration" on them. No complaints, just a silly observation.
I'm not really a fan of the TruBalance but that Ironside is an awesome makeup indeed.
