Was on the same order I believe. So probably the same time frame.

Your saddles are wonderful! I believe your snuff/color 8 by J. Crew might be my favorite pair of shoes I've seen in this thread.

Agreed! @MrDV you are killing the saddles recently!

I'm sure it depends on your personal preference and work environment, for me, jeans and alden longwings go like peas and carrots.

I wear jeans with all LWBs - whiskey, ravello, cigar, color 8, black shell.

For my wardrobe, the LWB is mostly a casual shoe (cigar, color 8, and black), and totally a casual shoe (ravello and whiskey) - particularly given its wide/bulky last, double leather (or Commando) sole, and storm welt.

I'm wearing tobacco reverse chamois on waterlock LWB with denim today. It's such a casual shoe and meshes perfectly with my casual work environment.

I believe I'm also #4 in my size so I could be looking at a looooong wait.

I think alot of you will be surprised how quickly it goes, if you are serious about buying them.
People add themselves to the list but never call back or decline the purchase when they come in.

Does anybody know of a retailer offering a LHS with the alpine grain leather? I don't think I've ever seen one but I would definitely be interested in such a makeup. I'm looking at you @Epaulet! satisfied.gif

Thanks for sharing this.  Some really cool makeups here (I'd love to see the natty CXL/loden green combo!) and those prices seem almost suspiciously low at the current exchange rate.

Dammit, Burzan! I just spent 5 min. Looking for that and you beat me by 30 seconds. I'm posting anyway.
Having some fun in the photo lab and hoping for some sunshine!

Close enough! I don't know how I missed those. I must have scrolled right past them in the feed. Now I just need for them to actually hit TSM's website.
post #104369 of 122416

Small question: I recently tried some Alden's plain toe bluchers on the barrie last. I really liked the fit in the toe area, but found that the heel counter was cutting in my heel a bit, probably because the heel cup on the Alden bluchers is pretty low (?).

 

Is this something that will dissapear with breaking in you think? 

post #104370 of 122416
I've been enjoying all the pics posted here recently - some fantastic makeups. Glad I finally received my TSM NST's... As others have mentioned, these things are almost flawless.

Crappy indoor pics.
