They are on the Snap last. They fit just like the Hampton, but with a rounder toe. They're clearly not on the Aberdeen.

I actually have this pair.

Thanks for the correction. I was thinking they would be on same last as model 971/972. Anyone feel free to PM me if you have questions about the Amex offer.

Nicely done. Those appear to be the Alden for Ben Silver split toe tassel. Yes?

Those whiskey LHS are amazing Don....so nice!

post #112103 of 122416

I wore these (whiskey SWB from Harrison Ltd) for the 1st time yesterday, and hope that they eventually get the variation in color as those whiskey LHS.

Any other companies make flat waxed boot laces that are ~54" and maybe a little more durable?

TZ Laces are really quite sturdy, here is a pair on my Vibergs. I only wish they made a darker brown.

Benjo as well but I have not tried them personally so can't speak on the durability.

I have laces from Benjos and they are as durabile as Alden's waxed laces. They are not any stronger.

Hey there buddy! Good question, I need some shorter laces myself. Throw up a pic of the natty WT boots!

Also, I got my package when I got home this evening. Thanks it looks great, testing it out this weekend.

@tricky you need to plan a trip to NYC and head over to Leffot or Alden Madison and just try on everything.  I did exactly that when I was in NYC last September.

Good luck.

Looking good and I concur. Anything Unlined (Chukka, PTB or LHS) in Suede is great for warmer weather.

I don't think those will look quite like Don's but with some time and wear, they should develop their own nice patina. Enjoy them ATL!

These were pretty tight in the toe box compared to my same-sized Aberdeen lasted shell captoe bluchers. After a few sockless wears, the shell has molded to my feet. I helped it a bit by pushing down the toe box area with my thumb!
