It is a sweet makeup.  I sent mine back, though--one medallion was off-center, and I really need a C width in these.  Will get on the next pre-order.  Enjoy them!
Edit:spoiler

Both of my medallions are off-center, but at least it's symmetrical.

These are my go-to boots at this point

I wear new england outerwear lazy moc with the soft chrome tanned leather sole for in-house. It's great on the hardwood floors and is really comfy.

Cuatro.
Waiting while wifey looks at purses.



Worn in the rain. They did not melt.

@zippyh - please be careful. Rumor is that color 4 shell is 1/2 the quality of color 8 (thus, color 4) and may fall apart at any second.
post #2424 of 10714
that mean Color 2 may be actively imploding, so buyer beware on these #2 loafers for sale.

I think I need some suede tassel loafers for the spring, and spring comes early here in Texas!

Braved the winter weather with some Cigar Indys today...

What kind of structure does the unlined suede chukka have?

I read somewhere that the toe isn't completely floppy and there's a bit of a liner at the tip.

Is there a structured heel cup or is this boot literally a sock on a sole?

 

As far as color, I have the following and wanted to get some feedback on adding diversity to my shoe rack:

I currently have:

 

- Tan suede Alden Indy (needsupply makeup) on commando sole

- Walnut AE Cornwallis (oxford)

- Black calf AE Carlyle (oxford)

- Bourbon AE mora (monk)

- Medium brown chocolate rambler Rancourt boots

 

I'm trying to decide if the snuff would overlap too much with the tan, brown, walnut, and I should go for the black suede.

 

I also haven't seen too many real-life pictures of the black suede and if they show a tremendous amount of lint & always look dusty. 

Otherwise, I think that the black looks sharp against the antique/natural edging, at least when shoe trees on in them. 

 

Thoughts?

I wish I'd have figured that out earlier but I think I've finally come to the same conclusion. Lately I can't keep my eyes off the AOC AF53. Trubalance on commando were born to go together. Adam really hit it out of the park with that one.
