I have a pair of Navy CXL boots, and the color is a really nice, deep navy.  It does seem to lighten slightly over time as well.

 

 

Listed as Navy. I'm waiting on another pair of Barries to see how the fit is. If it's good, I may pick these up if they're still available. Thanks to everyone for the info.

I know, I was really shocked!  I called just hoping to get on the wait list.  Anyway, they said it's a darker shade of Whiskey.  I can't wait to get them tomorrow.

Ryden, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the tip!  I've been wanting a whiskey PTB for the longest time.  So I called Alden DC and they had a fresh pair of Whiskey PTB in size 8D in stock right now!!  I had it shipped to me from DC to VA, so I should get them tomorrow.  I hope I didn't get your pair Ryden and tifosi, haha.  Now, I just have explain yet another shoe purchase to my dear wife.  Aww, man ...:butbut:

WOW! So glad that worked out for you. I just spoke with Kathy and luckily you did not grab my pair. Although for it minute or two it seemed like you had. Phew...

I am guessing darker whiskey is going to look like older Ravello...very curious to see how it looks

So why would you still be on a list when they had them in stock, Ryden?

She had forgotten to call me as they had a few lists going. They only just came in. They were not due till January but arrived early. I should have them this week.

OK, I'm glad.  I did ask if they were reserved before I bought them.  Thanks again, Ryden!

Not to mention 360 welt vs closed heel.

 

I am really coming around on the full strap, however, I feel as if it is a model that would look better after it is thoroughly worn-in.

I'm so pissed at myself right now.

Sorry, tifosi!  At least you already own a pair in Whiskey.  This will be my first.

I was in the DC store on Thursday and saw those shoes - I think I even posted that they had them in stock... I guess folks missed that! They also had whiskey LHS, and whiskey short wings (or maybe they were LWBs, I cannot recall for sure), and cigar cap toe boots and some cigar LWB. I am not sure what lasts everything were in, but they all looked to probably be Barrie. And everything I picked up was available on display in 7.5 or 8, so I know us smaller footed folks might have some luck there right now. I actually almost went back the next day for the PTBs or the SWBs but thankfully restrained myself.

These are Epaulet's Natural Chromexcel Brixton boots - I have a pair that I am parting with in 10D if that happens to be your size. They are sold out at Epaulet and who knows when/if a re-order ever comes in.

AOC does have a wingtip boot in stock in my size, but they are different from the Alden NY make up.
