I was wondering if anyone was going to catch it or not. They are one of my favorites, and a total pair of neck breakers when worn around anyone "in the know".
In Amsterdam I wore them to Sir Max, the fellow working stopped me and called his other two partners in from lunch to check them out. I ended up hanging in the store for like 1 1/2 hour BSing talking about shoes etc. I even went back the next day to chat some more. (and ship home some shoes) Now Sir Max is one of my favorite stores. Period. Great bunch of guys. I make sure to stop in to say hello any time I am in the Dam. Fun times.post #5913 of 106695/20/16 at 2:24pmQuote:
The Cigar, I think late 08 or 09. I was in NYC a lot those years and some of the trips are kind of hazy.
The Ravello I would say 09 but I really can not remember 100%. For sure pre fall 2010, I started a company and that has been eating into my shoe budget, well that and an engineer boot lust. Anyone fill in the gaps? I am sure if got on the google and did some digging I could piece it all back together. But I really don't like to live in the past...says the guy who collects vintage "stuff". Thanks for the interest have a great day.post #5914 of 106695/20/16 at 2:24pmQuote:

Yep, I know where I am at. I was being a wisenheimer ;) Sometimes tone does not relay online. I should know better. My bad. I thought the "" were a signal to let everyone know I was kidding around. No disrespect.post #5916 of 106695/20/16 at 2:42pmQuote:

Thank you sir.post #5918 of 106695/20/16 at 5:28pmpost #5919 of 106695/20/16 at 5:33pmpost #5920 of 106695/20/16 at 7:00pmpost #5921 of 106695/20/16 at 7:16pmpost #5922 of 106695/20/16 at 7:36pmQuote:
Hmmm... Are you in the US? Do you know your Brannock size? Any other shoes you have (that fit you well) you can share your sizing on?
As for where to buy, that has a lot of variables, too. Is there a speciifc shoe/leather/makeup you've got in mind?
There is a LOT of great information at the beginning of this thread, too.
More information will help the excellent and knowledgeable crew here help you. Cheers!post #5923 of 106695/20/16 at 7:39pmpost #5924 of 106695/20/16 at 7:58pm
If I understand the nomenclature, this is a shoe built in 2010 or 2000. I guess it could be older, but it doesn't seem like the natural CXL that these boots are apparently made from was done much back farther than that - maybe not even as far back as 2000 - there are far more knowledgeable folks here than me. Model number is 45194H, which google reports as a a CXL boot that looks like it might be a Trubalance plain-toe boot. Size is 9 D (as I'm sure you know). The 5 refers to them being the 5th pair in the batch.
If that is the pair from eBay, the look like they've got some indigo crocking and some wear, but look pretty decent. I'd probably re-heel them sooner than later.post #5925 of 106695/20/16 at 8:16pm
