In other news, cigar seems to be popping up more as of late. Just heard from another retailer that they were called to ask which of their cigar orders they wanted prioritized. They ended up with one of their orders confirmed (NSTs). Then there was the recent AoM preorder. I wonder if we'll see a lot more cigar makeups coming down the pipe (pike?) from various retailers.

and which retailer might that be?

Ha thanks.. Was just being a smart ass, it was 6:30 p.m. Cocktail hour and was anxious to fish for some Large Mouth and Small Mouth fighting Bass. We toss them back and ALWAYS crimpe down the hook barbs so as to not damage the fishy for yet another day...

I don't own any but most go TTS on aberdeen but I know that I have already read that they should fit snug and stretch to conform to your foot over time. Others will have more info on sizing. As far as foxing goes, its a heel stitch detail thats found on some full strap and tassel moc models.  I personally love the heel foxing on the blue suede model from Unionmade. If someone made a brown suede with contrast stitching with foxing I would buy it tomorrow. Here are some examples from the Unionmade website:

Alden chooses to limit their Cigar supply because they can barely keep up with demand for their #8 and Black shell "catalog" models, and they have committed to being able to produce those within a reasonable amount of time when a retailer/vendor requests a model in their stock shell catalog.

Vass sources cigar. Olive tones ftw.

Aberdeen - be careful- toe box can be tight depending on the shape of your foot.
