New gorgeous drops at Bureau Belfast. Looks like they have a makeup I'd been surprised no one made before, #8 LHS on antique sole. Lined, unfortunately (would be awesome if they were unlined). Also some #8 unlined antique dovers (reverse welt) and restock #8 trubalance Indy boots, antique, leather sole.

On a different note, I'm about 24 hours away from having a pair of whiskey shell LHS in my life. And I am soooo excited about it.

My whiskey Wednesday contribution. These may be for sale soon(9.5D)as they don't get worn often. Somehow I prefer darker shoes.

Call me a traditionalist, but I think your wtb are perfect the way they are.  The antiqued edge for color 8 is starting to win me over (still much prefer black with color 8), but brass hardware on color 8 is a flash in the pan, a fleeting fad, imho.  But, I've also always said, to each his own...

Antique sole on a #8 LHS was something I've always wanted. Also, very jealous about the whiskey LHS. Where are they from?/

Via profligate47, who decided in the end that he would part with them to a good home.

Lucky for me Epaulet had one more 9 in their Innsbruck build. I'm thrilled. Here is is...
 

 

Great choice. I'm with you, that's a perfect Indy configuration. TB and Commando are the perfect pairing. I have a pair of CXL cap toe boots from LS in TB. They'd be perfect if not for the lack of commando sole. Waterlock is good, just not great for me.

 

I'm waiting on a pair of AOC/Adam's masterpiece of Tru-Balance-ness, the AF53A. When it arrives this winter, I'll be in TB heaven :).

Trubalance and commando master race :slayer:!!!

Chukkas in Brown Kudu from The Shoe Mart:

 

 

These are going to become my go to casual shoe for the next few months.

 

Quick question though - it seems that shoe bags did not come with them, are they supposed to?  My LWBs and PTBs both came with bags, but they are shell.  Are all Aldens supposed to come with bags?

Guess I can play whiskey Wednesday :) Just got these Vtips back from B.Nelson. Ended up replacing the original soles with brick dainite, and could not be happier!

Magnificent looking LWBs. Understand, not everyone wants a tan colored shoe.

Beautiful looking CHukkas. Enjoy your new boots! I *thought* that all Aldens came with shoe bags, but I *could* be wrong....

Lovely looking Whiskeys. Cool choice with the Red Danite. I did a similar conversion to my older Ravello WT Boots.
