After an unsuccessful run at the lined LHS, it might be time to give the BB Unlined LHS a try for size...

The factory supplied Cigar as a consolation, and those who wanted to change their orders could change to Cigar versions of the same makeup. I believe these are the first Cigar Wingtips being sent as a result.

That's really cool - please take and post more photos!

Is it the Van last? If not how does it compare? I feel kind of lucky the Van seems to work for me, in suede at least. Slightly tight across my left foot but I know it will break in and loosen up. Love the color 8 LHS from BB too...

I have the same issue - although the other foot at some point I would like to try a 12.5 to see the difference from the 12

if anyone wants to let go of their cigar boots from AOM in 7.5, I am up for buying. perhaps you bought one too many boots recently.

Maiden voyage of my Epaulet Innsbruck LWB, Anonymism socks & JCrew corduroys. Dig the commando sole. Purchased these to get me through the winter until my color 8 LWB with antique edge on commando arrives from Adam, who rocks. I cannot wait for that model to come in, but these will do for now.

It was originally a Ravello SWB or the WTB.  You were then given the option to switch to a Cigar SWB or WTB.  Not really a fiasco and not really a discount - free trees.
