I have a pair of unlined Dovers (although not the Leffot version). They tend to crease a bit more than my PTB but not to the point where it bothers me. What I'm not a big fan of is the flex sole. I find my feet tend to ache after a full days wear whereas I can go all day in my PTB with no ill effect.

Hmm. I do have bad Achilles' tendons, so maybe I should skip it and go for a stock PTB instead (will be my first Aldens).

I do like the derby pattern better, though. Do retailers ever do a lined Dover?

Hahaha I need to chill. I'm tapping out of this one. I shouldn't have 2 tracking numbers inbound to me at the same time, let alone ordering more haha.

Had fun last night! Ravello WT boots this week or they become property of @BenLeaman!

You can just give them to me at the same time as those ungodly wide cigar Indys...

I just noticed Leffot updated the ETA on preorders to 16-24 weeks. I swear last time I ordered it was 12-16 weeks. No complaints as I'm happy to wait plus it gives me more time to save in case I snag both.

If you guys haven't noticed.....mdubs marketplace listing for his whiskey PTB is closed.......nod[1].gif

It's going to be a very good week for the Watchman.........biggrin.gif

I was fortunate to get on the last round of the Leffot #8 LWB. I'm holding out to see what other options might happen...plus I'm still waiting on 4 pre-orders to arrive from last year.

Alden Madison Ravello and Whiskey WTB and Cigar LHS, plus Ravello NST boot from TSM. That's getting me close to being done on my dream list. Plus the DC Ravello CT boot. Did I mention I like Ravello?

Good luck to those getting what you want!

See Ya,
Steve

its a club you proudly join as a new years resolution, and then you quickly realize it was a decision made in a moment of weakness.

its a stupid club, immature club.

I left the club in 5 days.

My shell boots remain closeted while I've been favoring CXL the past few weeks in our 5 feet of snow.

Want to get in on dover but really would prefer an EG dover. Wish there were more unlined dover options

Been waiting for the LWB to make a return but really love those dovers. Unlined is so nice. And after I join a few makeups this afternoon. Sheesh.
