Same here. I just love split toes. Even though the tankers will be very close to my shell Indys, I had to have them.

OK. Now I'm really done till some exotics come up.

With my color 8 Plaza last boot from JG


Green tongue(?)



Happened to be wearing the JG #8 Plaza last boots when the Naval (Barrie last) boots arrived. FYI they are both 10.5

Love the Leffot navals. I had considered them, but I really wanted something without any brogueing and not on Barrie.  #8 Plaza are nice, too!

It is probably my favorite style.

I have a difficult time deceiding which of these I like best, guess it's whatever I'm wearing.

nephew,
smooth cloth for both steps 1 and 3 i.e. tie shirts, underwear, painters cloth etc

Does anyone know if you can contact Alden directly in Middleborough (508-947-3926) to find out who might be receiving a particular shoe / boot in the near future? I was wondering if Alden was able to divulge information like this, or whether we simply had to wait until retailers announced particular makeups or preorders?

Not worth your time...You will not receive the information you are seeking. You have a higher likelihood by watching this thread or asking about a specific makeup here
