Speaking of suede boots, any word on ETA of the snuff suede plain toe flex welts from LS aside from in August? If they don't come out soon I might be forced to buy the Chromexel Plaza wingtip tomorrow.

They're 4 weeks out unfortunately.

I would buy the new Chromexcel version if it didn't have a 360 degree welt. Oh well, next time!








Excellent. I asked Tom about these but they were sold out of my size.

I love those! I have a pair of snuff suede PTB's that were seconds but they look too much like Uggs to get a lot of wear. I would wear those every day in every way!

All are Shoemart seconds except for the Kudu PTB boot, and they're all 8.5Ds on the Barrie last except for the unlined chukkas which are 9D on the Leydon last.

I decided to sell the brown calf wingtip boot below as there are on 8.5D Leydon last and too tight in the toes for me. I'm not sure what I'll replace them with: either another wingtip boot or a cord #8 longwing on the Barrie last.
Very nice collection. Wear them in health!

HAHAHA! I like the last two picks where they wanted pictures without you cramping their style.

What watch is that BTW?

How far out are the cordovan saddle shoes I just ordered a couple of weeks ago? I don't want to hear anything more than two weeks you selfish bastard!

Haha, yeah, I felt pretty silly setting it up, but it had to be done! The watch is a speedbird 3 (http://www.watcharoo.co.uk/speedbird3.htm).

I thought I saw a pre-order (and ETA) for some plaza wingtip non-speed-lace boots in #8 (and another boot) about 3 weeks ago through LSH (i.e. LSW/LSBH). I can't find any trace of this now. I have a feeling I missed the pre-order, but I will 100% buy a 9D if I can find them. Anyone have this same dream?

I'd email Tom if I were you. 9D would be a standard part of the order, hence he could set aside a pair for you.

I like them a lot but I am moving away from speed hooks as a general preference.

If I bought those and bought them from jcrew I would wait for a sale.

Anyone have these wingtip boots in scotch grain from Shoemart? http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._calfskin.html Not sure what my next purchase will be and whether I want to shell out (pardon the pun) $600+ for cordovan boots. However the Leather Soul #8 PTB boots with crepe soles are looking mighty nice...

sorry bit of a noob, what are speed hooks? do you think they'll go on sale? not in a rush to get them (I have some DBs that are ok) so ya I'd love to get them at least for a little cheaper. I'm just not familiar with jcrew's policy on 3rd party brand items and sales. edit:: I see the speed hooks now, they were hard to see before and because of that I didn't know what you meant haha
post #5128 of 122416
speed hooks are the 8 metal pieces the lace wraps around at the top as opposed to regular eyelets toward the bottom. They are there for convenience for lacing but sometimes don't look as good compared to all eyelets instead.

Anyone know if it's possible to identify the age of Aldens using the numbers printed inside the boot (5h28 0003)? I have this older pair of 405's with the duck lining and was wondering when they were produced.
