I love that Leffot has their second round of tan suede LWB's going into production before I can get a pair I ordered from Leather Sole like 2 years ago.

What about the Plaza version on commando from J Gilbert? They should have it in 4-6 monthspost #64703 of 12241610/31/13 at 11:37amQuote:Originally Posted by Profligate47
I really like these two models from Epaulet and cannot decide between the two. I need a casual shoe for minor weather--i.e., rain, light snow etc. I want a commando sole and if I could combine these two, I'd be home free.
I like the closed heel, commando, and eyelets on the blucher, but dislike the white ?? welt. Possibly Nick could darken?
I like the wingtip but not the extended heel (360 welt?) and not sure of waterlock sole since I've never had it.
Any comments welcomed...
Thanks. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There were already a lot of votes for the short wings and I'll add my voice to that list.
I don't normally like short wings with a lot of casual looks, especially denim, but I think the Alden alpine grain leather combined with the short wing would work really well for quite a bit. And if you really wanted a commando sole, you could always take it to a good cobbler near you (or send of to somewhere like the ever recommended B. Nelson in NYC) and have the soles changed.post #64704 of 12241610/31/13 at 11:38ampost #64705 of 12241610/31/13 at 11:41amQuote:
gotcha, I am in the minority here and would go opposite. I actually like the NST on a more rounded toe box.
I would probably hold out for the NYC version. I find the double leather sole to be a really pain to break in and make comfortable where as the commando is great right away.post #64706 of 12241610/31/13 at 11:41am

The Whiskey PTBs from Alden DC have just arrived. I open the box to find that they sent me a 9D instead of 8D I went from 100-0 in zero seconds flat. WTF!!!!! Here are some pics, anyway. If anyone is a size 9D and interested in this pair, shoot me a PM. If not, I will be sending them back.
