Damn, 4-5 preorders? 

Thanks, definitely. Haven't worn many leather soled Aldens recently unless completely dry, so putting the commando soles through its paces.

 

Yeah, nothing crazy just a few non-shell things like a Reverse tobacco chamois WTB from Yenni, Black alpine grain captoe boot from Leffot, Snuff suede WTB from Epaulet, and the Context Color 8 tanker boot.

Is anyone going in on the Leffot PTB? How is that crepe sole in inclement conditions?

if you mean just wet, I have not had a problem with the Crepe.. Not getting the PTB though. One hell of a comfortable sole though..I have noticed that my heel wear area happens faster on the crepe than other heels.

I also visited the wind city this past Saturday so I stopped by Haberdash and Hanigs for some Alden love. Haberdash still have a decent selection left at discounted price. I almost walked out with a pair of suede chukkas but I am gonna order online to say peace to the 10.25% sales tax.

Hanigs was quite a surprise for me, the store at first looked like a Payless shoes store until I found the small Alden section. Quite a few styles are on sale (their have CXL chukka on commando for $450 and it's not on their website). I also surprisingly had a much better shopping experience and enjoyed talking to the sales person who was wearing his Color 8 Indy that day. Highly recommend them and it's conveniently located inside the John Hancock building.

I was wearing JCrew PCT on top of Hancock building (even though you can't tell smile.gif)

Frans Boone has some PTBs on crepe with brass eyeles in stock right now, in case you're interested.

Cigar Indy Boots after their first coat of paste wax. Probably the best pair of Alden I have owned. I could see wearing this pair of boots for 20 years

Great collection. I've never owned whiskey LWB. I may have to get on a list.

Your Cigar Indy Boots are looking terrific and will look even better if you keep to that promise! :-)

 

The Whiskey LWB are a great makeup, definitely recommend adding it to your shoe fam.
