Indestructible. Period.

 

 

Those look great......still breaking mine in with only a couple of wears.....did you find that the color variaton developed with some wear?

 

I was a little surrpised at how uniform the color/texture was when I got them as I had seen some of your previous posts.

IME chamois looks better the more you wear it. Color variations develop. Look great in the rain too.

ATL Since you asked...

I took a few shots of one for you.

Note where anything rubs against the smooth chamois, it darkens substantially. (see the tongue and where my jeans rub against the sides)

I couldn't agree more.

Seems that Epaulet just went live with preorders for the Brixton boot in #8

I missed out on the cigar captoe at AoM, but stoked I got in on the Brixton pre-order!

PSA:  

Epaulet just dropped pre orders for the Brixton - #8, wingtip, double leather on Barrie and Gustav PTB - #8, commando on Grant.

 

I am waiting for a Brixton "like" boot on commando to wear as a dress boot while traveling in the winter to the northeast/mid-atlantic to accommodate snow/sleet, etc...  The Brixton looks fantastic!  I can't wait to see Yenni's #8 wingtip on Grant when it comes in as I am on a list for the next round that appears similar to the Brixton, but on commando and with hooks.  

 

Good hunting everyone and cheers to Epaulet for offering some beautiful makeups!

brixtons are nice. just kind of tired of color 8 at this point. how about some black shell brixtons with antique soles?

I jumped on the Brixton preorder as well. Couldn't resist the antique edge!

Will be my first Alden wing...figured it was time to get over the clown foot fear...

The prices are getting a little crazy, Alden has had at least 2 bumps in a very short window. I know it's across the board regardless of maker, but geez. We're looking at almost $600 now for calfskin boots. $750 for color 8... a freaking grand for C&J Polo cordovan. Who is buying Marlowes for a thousand dollars? Come on.
post #117359 of 122416

A bit confused on 3rd party make ups when it comes to size availability. If they are MTO, why is there a limit of the number per size and how can they be sold out when they haven't been made? Doesn't make any sense to me for Alden to limit their MTO. Sorry just thinking out loud.

post #117360 of 122416

And….. Brixton's appear sold out for pre order on Epaulet website.  For all those who jumped on, congratulations.  Hoping and praying Yenni can add my 10.5EE TTS size to the next order!!
