post #101446 of 122416

I am a style buffoon overall and my wardrobe is man-ly casual...cords and chinos...aka khaki's worn with flannel shirts and long sleeve henleys, thermals etc...nearly all of my winter wear are of the dark colored nature...black, navy, olive, slate, khaki, shades of brown(darker browns)

 

So my question is will these below boots look ridiculous with the pants? Do I need lighter pants? ( they just arrived at my house from Alden's repair shop so I will see them in a few hours)

 

 

 

This is not me but something that I would be wearing just with darker pants...and much better shoes...

Mouldedshoe has some shell boots on modified last in (they are now on IG @mouldeshoe)

They also have the #8 indy on modified in a 7, 8, 11, 11.5 and 13.

Best advice is to go with your barrie size for the modified last.

The front of the store had one of those deep glass showcases which provided for great window shopping. They don't make them like that anymore.

Their smaller store on Rector remains open.

Wow, never knew they sold Alden.

Has there ever been a Whiskey Dover? I really like the Whiskey PTB but I would like a Dover even more, just not sure if that's a combination one can expect to be made?

Someone posted (a while back) a description of the modified last and how it fits... I'm really interested in it. I over probate super bad, so any support is appreciated.

AoM just posted a photo of the Whiskey NST shoe that was just dropped (all sold out at pre-order). Great shade. Congrats to all who kopped. One of my favourite pairs (too bad it gets so little wear!)

Haha, thanks! A little deer bone and a little edge trim polish and I might be alright!

I saw! How was it? It's easily the most complimented shoe I've worn. The color stands out I guess...

When was the preorder for this? Gosh I feel like I have to constantly keep up with this thread to even have a chance at the rarer rare shells. Greatly brings down my productivity :confused:

Email was sent out 6/11/14, I would guess submitted to Alden by the end of the same week. Ravello wingtip boot, whiskey Indy, cigar LHS, cigar and ravello LWB were also on this order.

That Whiskey Indy.. one of my biggest regrets not grabbing one when they had one in my size years ago!

I had a chance to get on either whiskey NST shoes or whiskey Indy recent run from AoM and decided to pass.. Of course I'm kicking myself for that, damn.

Whiskey Indy. Dang I'm gonna be jealous when those show up.
post #101458 of 122416

other than the LHS on that list, I'd have been in for all the rest.. would have been an expensive month

No, no, and no.

Those boots are in for repair; not for sale.

Indys are on Trubalance;

Modified last sizing is unique. It is not as simple as "same as barrie" for most feet. It is best to be fitted in that last. I'm a 1/2 size down in length and a letter up in width from barrie, in shoes. Boots fit differently as well.
