post #114826 of 122416
Im really on the fence about hopping on the preorder list for the Navy CXL Greenwich boots from Leffot.

Does anyone have any full wardrobe shots of these in the wild? I figure these would be almost exclusively a boot to wear with denim.

Any thoughts?

The snuff LHS is great, though I wish it had a tan antique edge/welt. Any thoughts on this?

TSM whiskey LHS

Just got them off ebay. Worn but not terrible condition, very happy with them.

Whiskey shell ages the best! Ravello is good too, but its color change over time depends on the shade at the start.

Color 8 and Cigar do not change enough, unless exposed to sunlight constantly.

Need some SF advice-

Im getting a pair of black boots with commando soles, should I go for calfskin or chromexcel?
post #114834 of 122416


To me CXL will show its age much faster than Calf but if you like that distressed look more, go with the CXL otherwise stick with calf for a more lasting newer look.

I'd choose calf over CXL. The extreme wrinkles/creases of CXL bothers me.

My wife and I are taking our first vacation together in about 5 years and that was my primary motivation for grabbing these. Airport gear and my first pair of Alden's that I will be comfortable wearing with shorts. Looking forward to the vacation even more after grabbing these. Thanks.

Hey Papa. I'm not an expert on Alden welts/edges and I think there are a few variations of antique. To me, they're either black or antique. Using my simplified logic, these are definitely antique, though maybe not tan antique. They seem pretty close to my snuff LWB's.



For my intended use, the welt is perfect. Wouldn't change a thing.

BL - those are amazing. We're pretty close in size so I wonder if they're the same pair I was watching for about a month. If so, they were an incredible pic given the price. I couldn't believe they lasted as long as they did. Congrats!
