It is my understanding that this is indeed the case.

Kathy told me when I was in her store that they are making it a stock shoe in Black CXL starting this fall (I believe).

Went outside today and found the first leaves of fall in LA. That means it may rain again in four months.

Hi all. Does anyone know if there's another retailer that offers a brown alpine grain SW boot similar to Leffot's Greenwich makeup? I'm looking for brass hardware (4 eyelets + 5 hooks) with commando soles.

Check out the Epaulet Alt Wien which is a brogue captoe otherwise meeting your specs

Yenni at Brick + Mortar offers it in dark brown regina grain (darker than the brown alpine grain), minus the brass eyelets.  You could always get the eyelets and hooks converted by a cobbler.

She has it in 7D and 10D right now. Barrie last.

These look fantastic! Are they on the Aberdeen last? I just received the color 8 wingtip boots from B+M and have decided to sell those and place a deposit for these instead. I'm trying to decide whether to go with Barrie or Aberdeen, and I'm leaning towards the Aberdeen as I like the sleeker look and that last fits me really well.

Thanks. I saw those but I prefer the lighter shade of brown. Basically looking to replace a pair of boots that I sold because I had bought the wrong size.

Yeah...sigh. It's the first place I went as an alternative but they don't have my size. I'm an 11D in Plaza. Thanks, though :-)

Thank you!  Yes, these are on the Aberdeen.  I have a pair of black and a pair burgundy wingtip boots on the Barrie and I love them.  This is the first pair of boots I have in the Aberdeen and was a bit worried.  I only have a pair of shoes in the Aberdeen and heard the fitting could be tighter in the boots.  Not so with this pair at least.  They are a more sleeker look and with the medallion straight tip I figured it was enough of a difference to justify another pair of boots.  :)  I am happy with them and the antique outsole brings out more of the brownish tones in the color 8.

 

Even though I haven't seen them in the Barrie I don't think you go wrong with either last you choose.

The white contrast stitching is great on these. I would resole at Alden ONLY if the did not mess with the the uppers. Still LHS and Tassel weather here on the Sonran Desert..
