^ email Steven at Leffot and express your interest so hopefully we all can be happy.

Speaking of Leffot they got in some Cigar NST on the Aberdeen last.

Anyone who's interested in trying to get a whiskey Indy boot made up needs to call Kathy at the Alden DC store @ 1-(202)-347-2308

Anyone who's interested in trying to get a ravello captoe boot made up needs to email Steven @ info@leffot.com.

The only way either one of these boots could possibly get produced is to take the time out of your day and express interest to either retailer. I'm in for either pair and have called Kathy already and will email Steven today.

Thanks for posting this. I'm certainly considering it although I'd much prefer an Indy Boot in Ravello.

Who decided that we have to contact Kathy for one and Steven for the other? Not trying to be difficult but I'm a little curious how this fell into place.

My guess is that Kathy has shown in the past to be receptive to makeup suggestions and Stephen has sold the Ravello captoe boot before.

Beautiful shoes, uncle. Love the color. Are these the shoes just posted on the Leffot blog?

That is correct. I'm just trying to generate interest in a special makeup boot from a retailer. I wouldn't be opposed to a ravello Indy, either. The more SF members who express interest, the greater the chance of getting a special makeup produced. I guess a consensus or poll should've been taken before this whole thing started up as to what boot we'd like to have made.

On the special makeups that are being discussed; is there a way we can get better organized on this? I am interested in a ravello boot, a whiskey boot etc. etc. but if we are calling/emailing different places with different requests not sure it can work.
What about us getting or shit together and asking Tom to help us out before going to someone else?

tom in the past has said if we get enough orders and alden has the pattern he will do it. i also remember that tom said it would be hard to do any exotic shell, cigar, ravello etc. calling tom.

I don't think it is interest that is causing these to not get made. ravello boots fly off the shelves whenever they are made, its the supply that is much harder.

though, getting in on pre-order does make it more likely that you will actually be able to buy a pair

Email sent, but how many people need to email him to get the project started?
