I would be in for that captoe if Tom can get it made. Especially if it is on the flex welt oiled sole like on the chukkas. That would look great and be amazingly comfortable.

The Leffot Blog showed a pr of G&G's black captoes with waxed flat brown laces - which gave me this idea:

Tom,

Any captoes coming in the future or a reorder of the longwings, so I can get my size.

trunks206- where did you get those J. Crew LWC's from? I'm still impatiently waiting for my pair which is still on the wait list.

I'm really trying not to visit Leather Soul BH again because I know I will at least buy 2 pairs if I do! Lol.

Tom,
I am looking for NSTs on Cigar/Ravello on Aberdeen last. Shoemart used to carry them but not anymore, should have bought them back then. How come they are so rare? There are bunch of them on Barrie last which I don't care for a lot.
Do you what last the cigar captoes I posted are? Are they Hampton?

These are looking great, Cigar is my favorite color. The ones I posted are Ravello, I don't think shoemart has them. Oh yeah, shoemart has them on Barrie last which to me is very bulky. I think NSTs look best on Aberdeen last.

They are rare because there are so many options! When a retailer gets an allocation they have a choice on what to order with that allocation. Because there are just so many choices, it's rare for a retailer to reorder the same style when they have ravello or cigar available unless it is a proven winner with a lot of demand, eg. Cigar Longwings, Ravello Chukkas, Cigar Indy Boots, etc... I hope that made sense... Basically, if you see something in ravello, whiskey, or cigar that is kind of out of the ordinary and you really like it, I'd get it while you have a chance.

Those do look like Hampton to me.
