Chatting with Kathy this week, she asked what special make-ups were on my wish list. I asked if she would consider an Indy boot in Whiskey with commando soles. She said that she would think about this as a possibility for Spring '12 delivery.

Mcarthur has a pair like this (not sure of the soles) and they are super-sweet. I believe his were made by LeatherSoul.

How 'bout it folks? Anyone interested in letting Kathy know we'd love to see that boot made up?

Called Kathy earlier today, gave her my phone number in case she decided to go with Whiskey Indy boots, we need more interest for her to order this one.

As soon as some retailer say's they're going to make them I'll sign up immediately!



Here is the Leffot pair again...





I emailed Steven and he asked for my size in case they decide to do another run so if other SFers are interested in a Ravello captoe boot as well maybe you all could email him too and we could make this boot happen again! (for less than the pair at Tassels would be due to them coming in internationally).

No he's talking about the "mcarthur" make up as the "other special makeup (not the Whiskey Indy people are talking about) If you're interested in the Ravello captoe see my above post.



To add something to this thread, I snapped some pics of my Jcrew Alden captoes in the sun the other day.



I just love the rich color of #8

Would Steven do odd sizing for a special run of boots? I've asked him about putting my barrie last size (10 1/2 EE) for one of his orders and he wasn't too receptive.

Stunning shoe Uncle.

Thanks to the folks showing some interest and calling Kathy. Maybe we can get this one made up. Would be a wonderful thing to look forward to 9 months from now!

I like that one a lot. Would like it even better with a punched cap.

More Whiskey Indy from Tom.
Seeing Mac's made me slip mine on today too.

^ I really really wish Alden would get back to doing the regular stitching for shell indys. The NST style handsewn look does not look good for cordovan indy boots.
