Lipschitz just shipped my Lindricks, as well. Can't wait to wear them in the mosh pit!

Can anyone compare how Vass shell matches up vs. C&J / Ralph Lauren shell?

C&J uses Horween shell.
I believe Vass does as well.

Woo hoo, I just got a call from the SA telling me I want be getting the 11.5s that we ordered Sat morning!
The 11.5s are all gone, but there were 3 pairs in the system when I gave him my CC info on Sat??

Do they run a little big? Is it worth trying the 11s?

Damn. Probably some orders in advance of yours that were not fulfilled yet.

Call some stores or get a 12. My experience is that stock is not really well documented.

Not everyone was able to. I went with my true size, an 11. I'll wear a thicker sock.

I'll let everyone know how they fit.

how do you guys think a commando sole would look on the Lindrick?

I think if they were resoled to a single leather sole with commando, would look great!

I dont know. I'm not into that kind of sole to begin with, but for the same money you can get a pair of custom trickers and they'd be made that way from the get go.

^ I agree. I wouldn't get a new pair resoled but after 2 years I might. I live in California so I really dont need a commando sole. Would prefer a single leather sole

well, I'm not "into it" it's more of a functional thing to boots more easy friendly through the Boston winter, and also on rainy days.

I just read through the trickers thread, I didn't realize you could get MTO from them for so cheap ($500 ish?). but my understanding is you can't get Horween shell from them (and if you could it would bring the price way up anyways)

I think an individual MTO is going to run you a lot more than $500.
The bulk MTOs (order of 6) are going for the stock price of about 355gbp for boot (minus VAT for US peoples).
So if you're good at herding cats and get 5 other people to agree to the style, Shoe Healer will do it for the standard price.
That's assuming a "standard" MTO using the normal options/styles in calf.
See the Tricker's MTO thead.

I seem to recall the price for an individual MTO is another 100-120GBP above that.
And shell is another 100-200GBP above that. Memory is fuzzy on this though.
Best to ask Richard (aka the Shoe Healer).

Allegedly the Tricker's Mogano cordovan is Horween.
See http://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/2011/10/25/trickers-mahogany-shell-cordovan-stow-boots/
He got his info from the factory dude who runs the ebay shop.

I saw that blog ^ that's a nice boot, looks like it sold for $430 + shipping which is a great deal, fairly comparably to Alden shell seconds

but of course waiting around for seconds that you want can be an indefinite process, more of a lottery ticket than an actual alternative

$580 ish at the current sale price is about as good as you're gonna do for first quality C&J shell boots. deep discount for the C&J for BB boots was about $600, and that wasn't in a 'rare' shell color. I think they basically fly off the shelves at that price so they don't need to go lower.

I guess the Alden for J Crew shell boots sometimes can be had on coupon for mid $400's, but again that's in #8. It's nearly impossible to get new, 1st quality, boots in the whiskey/ravello/brown spectrum for under $600

Those of you with the Darlton/Marlow Pennies: did you order true to size? or size up 1/2?

I bought a pair a while ago, true to size, but they're tight in the toe box and I'm thinking of buying a new pair in a half size bigger.

I haven't broken them in at all (they're too beautiful to wear) so maybe they'll stretch.
