Whiskey commando wingtip boots on the 379x. For 14oz but via TSM seconds (and an eBay seller who at the end of the day sold them for only slightly above his cost).

Congrats on your new Whiskey Wingtip Boots. They look superb!!!

Second pair I am waiting on the arrival - Brown chromexcel indy boots on commando sole. Will follow up later!

If any of you gents are interested, Alden of Madison just received a new shipment of the brown chromexcel indy boots on the commando sole... call them if you are interested!

Congrats on your two new CXL Boots. Those Perf Tips are looking very good and should be very comfy and supportive for you. Enjoy them both!

As always, let us know if there any any makeups you'd be interested in having us run.  We have been absolutely swamped since the holidays but we're finally digging out and will be more present on this thread going forward nod%5B1%5D.gif

Awesome news Sam! Funny considering our recent conversation. Hope all who ordered it enjoy it and all its Plaza-Y goodness.

My daily WSAYWT is quickly becoming either these or my Whiskey WTBs. Hey, at least I'm alternating them, right?

Ha! Alternating is important. But they are looking superb!

Rainy day, so some well loved #8 captoe boots for some work meetings.

Those boots should work for your meeting. Hope that they went well and that you kept dry.

I don't think there is any way to conjur up an argument that either of those are not amazing looking. They are both fantastic in their own ways.

Your boots are looking good and the great thing about Alden is that they have so many beautiful makeups on a combo of lasts and we get to chose between awesome designs.

Nay.

I was planning to wear my 975s but it looks really off, I sucked up and brought a pair of black shoes. I would say at least get a pair with black edge.

I personally don't think that even a 975 would look good with a tux. The color and the broguing just would detract too much from the formality associated with a tuxedo.

Your new Indy Boots are looking very good. The natural edge and commando are an interesting contrast.

Those Chukkas are just lovely. I saw those a few years back. Reminds me a lot of the LeatherSoul 8 year anniversary makeup, which was a Color 8 Chukka on Antique Double Leather Souls. Looking good sir!

It's funny because we hardly ever seen cxl tassels in general. My Brooks sales rep has an older pair done by BB in Natty cxl and they are just exquisite. These are no exception. Enjoy them!

Your Beams Boots are looking very good. Don't see a ton of Beams makeups here, but they have a slew of rad makeups. That's a pretty interesting thing you have hanging off your belt. :-)

I have a line on some C width LWB but no place to try them on for reference.

I saw Prez post the chart, but to directly answer your question. The difference is 3/16". Kathy would tell you 1/4"... ;-)
