Was wondering if anyone could comment on sizing of plaza last going from shoe to boot.  Will the space of the lacing be the same...in other words I have about a 1/2 inch of space between the laces on my shoe.  Will I have the same on the boot?

I wish someone would do a natural CXL dover PTB with exposed brown eyelets and antique welt. *Fingers crossed*

Never thought I'd see a post with an absolute stunning pair of Ravello longwings, and they would be the 2nd best item of clothing in the post. My goodness MrDV, this is just spectacular.

Thanks for that. Im glad to see someone do that pattern. I'm partial to the low profile of the flex sole. Funny, I was just looking through that website and didn't even notice those.

I'm putting together another Alden gMTO and want to share it with the thread. The entire run is limited to 18 pairs, projected delivery time is late this year or early next year. The store submitting this run is very reputable and trustworthy. This is the make up:

Material: Chocolate suede
Last: Barrie
Design: NST boot
Stitching: Contrast stitching, Indy stitching (**please see picture below, this is an extra line of stitching that sits on the "waist" of the shaft and runs parallel to the length of the boot. It's often seen on Indy boots and JCrew Alden boots**)
All color matched eyelets
Welt: 360 degree flat welt
Edge: Tan Antique
Sole: Commando
Handsewn split toe

Make up will be similar to this, except for: flat welt, all eyelets, and Indy stitching


Here is an example of Indy stitching:


Terms:
This order is through a long time Alden stockist, they wish to remain anonymous in this stage of the gMTO. All standard sizes and widths are available, and they do not need to be consecutive in size. Size changes will not be allowed once the run is submitted. Total run is limited to 18 pairs, around half of the spots are already filled.

This order is not yet confirmed by Alden, I expect it to be confirmed since it will be submitted by a very reputable stockist. The final price should be around $600, the stockist requires a non-refundable $200 deposit. Expected delivery is hard to tell at this point, but should be 3-4 months after order is confirmed. Safe to say this will be in our hands winter 2015 or Q1 2016.

As with all Alden hand made products, there is a slim chance for QC issues, boots not passing QC, or not being made entirely. The stockiest will request the boot to be sent to them and will address the defects with appropriate refund/discount.

If you are interested, please PM me your: name, email, barrie size. Once we reach the run size and/or 1 week from today, I'll submit the list to the stockiest and everyone can call in with their deposits.



Thanks!

Dan

Very cool makeup, Zenny. If I didn't already own the LS Choco Suede Tanker, I'd be all over this. I especially like the added detail of the Indy stitch.

The cigar chukkas were actually a recent find on eBay (about 2 months ago) & I got lucky where the seller had them at a very good 'buy it now' price

 

They were made for TSM (The Shoe Mart), but I'm not sure if there's currently a list for them or not.  You could call and ask (ask for Ed).  Good luck!

Looking great in both your Cigars and Ravellos. Hope that you had a great weekend!

eBay and TSM are both great sources! :-)
