That would do nicely - I got a PM about these as well.  I sent Yenni a note asking when the next order/build is.  Thanks!

My Fall slippers on today with some new trousers from J Crew (sorry Epaulet fans, gotta stick to local purchases with the brutal exchange rate for now)

Damn, Burzan, your slippers look great, almost new!  Love those socks as well.

You might be lucky and your size will be in stock. I'm sure Yenni will take good care of you :thumbs-up:

Just a quick heads up for for the thread members before I list my #8 BB version of the 9015. Just passing along the deal I got. 11.5D. New but tried on.

Thanks, I don't reach for them a ton and mainly wear them to work so they are basically in the same condition as when you passed them along. Great chukka and the 8E leydon is a great fit for me.

First half of today, color #8 LWB and some cotton/linen pants.

 

 

The rest of the day: unboxing my new Navy CXL wingtip boots on Plaza, from Yenni at B&M. Very pleased with them. Really awesome makeup, and Yenni is, as always, wonderful to deal with.

 

 

 


 

A few more photos... (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Decided to wear them for the rest of the day/evening with my (still being broken in) pair of Gustin Oxblood2 denim.

Nice pickup!  I've been eyeing them and also have a pair of Oxblood. 

 

Out of curiosity, do you find their color a "true" blue?   I had Navy CXL Indys that were more loden than blue.

@JSO1, I don't own any navy boots but yours look outstanding.  They are now on my wish list as they would provide well needed diversity to my rotation.

What a great make up.  Yenni is the best!  The Navy CXL boot look superb and you wear it well!

Interesting that you don't reach for them often. I just couldn't make them work for me. It was a shame for me because I think they are a really nice looking chukka. The snuff suede on those is a really nice shade.  I have a pair of Leffot snuff WT boots and the shade is not nearly as nice.

Thanks! I find these to be pretty true navy blue. I don't see many gray or green tones that would make me think of Loden. I can try and take some direct sunlight pictures next time I head outside in them.

Not sure where he got his pair, but that's a stock model now, style # 9794. You can order it from pretty much any Alden retailer. I have a pair, and absolutely love them.

Congrats @JSO1!

 

Those are one of my fav recently made boots, enjoy them often.

I think it's just a case of having a large rotation, they really can go with jeans, chinos or even wool trousers like I am wearing today. You are totally right though, they are a great shade of snuff.
