The full strap is such an underrated model. I think it's a classic loafer in the top tier along with the LHS and EG Piccadilly

FYI: Just spoke with Yenni. She is expecting the shipment which includes the reverse chamois wingtip boots to arrive at her store on Monday. @TO Tie Guy

My apologies if this was covered, but where do I find the middle pair? And what is the exact name, style, color, etc? Thanks gents

So after a ton of wear, holes have started to develop in the heal area of my Ultimate Indy's on both shoes, in more or less the same spot. Picture below.

Is this something that Alden would look at fixing in a recraft, or is that out of scope?

Great lineup, Mike.

 

Question: did you get the same size in the Cigar Lhs's as you did in your BB unlined shoes?

Give Yenni at Brick & Mortar (that's the store's name) in Seattle, WA a call. She can put you on the list for the next run.

It's a color 8 wingtip boot on the Grant last. Not sure of the sole/welt offhand.

Thanks!! I will either be purchasing these to wear with nice denim or the Color 8 Cap-toe boots in Grant last from DC. Opinions on one or the other and why are greatly appreciated fellas.

Wingtip boot on the Grant last. Color 8 with an antique edge, flat welt on commando sole.
From Brick & Mortar. Yenni is doing another run, you may be able to get in on the pre-order.

$1500 for some Ravello LWBs. Ouch.

Those will be a tough sell, especially given the size. I think I was wearing 6.5 shoes when I was 7 or 8 years old, lol.

I wish I could wear the full strap!  My foot is not the right shape for them and they fly right off my feet.  Beautiful shoe, especially in the shell.
