post #64696 of 122416

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.

Do you ever say to yourself, "If I didn't have a car payment, I could buy more shoes?"

That is the reason I don't have a car payment! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dilemna: Alden NYC does not have the color8 wingtip boot on commando in stock and probably not until sometime next year, but Alden SF has it in stock on double leather...

I had wanted the commando, but now with the double leather available....

BUT I really like the wheeled edge of the double leather...

What about the Plaza version on commando from J Gilbert?  They should have it in 4-6 months

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.

I passed that up because I really want the NST on Plaza. I would rather have the wingtip on Barrie.

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.

I miss the brogueing around the heel. The AOC model doesn't have it. I just think it completes the look...

The Whiskey PTBs from Alden DC have just arrived.  I open the box to find that they sent me a 9D instead of 8D :censored: 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.

Here's a comparison pic verus my ravello LWB (new stock)
