Do you know what leather that is? Burnished tan?

The website (Alden of Carmel still has B&M's shoe inventory listed) says it's Cognac Calfskin.

Anyone know who vwfoxx (San Diego) is on Ebay? He just listed Cigar Indies (Bootmaker Edition) for a reasonable price. A bit too small for me.

Ravello LWB for a rainy day. :)

 

It was raining in Chicago at a moderate pace but I had places to go. Figured I'd break in the newly "triple" Dainite-soled Ravellos in the conditions for which I got them.

 

Unfortunately, it ended up raining a lot harder than I expected, and the wind was so intense that it made my umbrella useless, and got my LWBs thoroughly wet. Not much worse for the wear, though. The rain practically beads off these things. I love shell in the rain. I'll hit them with the Mac Method tomorrow and see if I need to use Bick 4 or VSC (or Alden tan paste wax), but I'm betting I won't.

 

Before I headed out:

 


After, upon my return:

Gentlemen, I have received a jar of color 8 cordovan paste along with my #8 WT boots from Alden SF.  Do other Alden retailers do this as well, or is it just from the company stores?

I believe so, at least I have yet to receive any lagniappe from anyone else. Kathy and Co. In DC have always included shoe horns, extra laces, etc.

Yes, DC includes a shoe horn and extra laces. Not sure about SF because I've never ordered from them, but paste wax is a nice touch!

 

I like ShoeMart's shoe horn - substantial and metal. Fantastic thing.

What is the draw to commando soles vs neocork? Having both, it seems like the neocork is more durable and more water resistant. Most of the shell indys I see are on commando which is a downside to me.

That Plaza SW from BB in #8 is one of my grails.

 

Wish I could get it in a 10E...
