Leffot's website is just too dangerous to look around on.
Would you go, for casual/bizcaz:
1. Nat CXL Longwing (double waterlock sole)
2. Nat CXL captoe boot
3. Greenwich Navy CXL shortwing boot
I know the color 8 LWB is always out there, but the black edging seems a littttle more formal than I'm looking for.
I just placed a pre-order for #1 in 10D. They will be my 3rd pair of Aldens. Currently own #8 Chukka and have a pre-order on 403s from J. Crew I was able to use a 25% off promo on.post #66303 of 12241611/15/13 at 6:57ampost #66304 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:01amQuote:Originally Posted by luc13
So i have some newbee questions.
i trie hard to find a Indy or Tanker Boot in 12.5 or 13 (depending the Last) in a brown shell tone.
but i fail.
what is the best way to get one?
did i hve to spend some candys for the Alden gods? there must be a temple!?
did this run only about the pre order lists? and how i came thrue it?
questions about questions
Context Clothing has color #8 Tankers on pre-order with scheduled delivery in May and 12.5 and 13 are available (in D and E widths). FWIW, I've done pre-orders twice with Context and each time they came in when they were expected to.post #66305 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:08ampost #66306 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:12ampost #66307 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:15amThinking about investing in some shell Indys. Are they that difficult to come by? Is it generally accepted that the Trubalance last runs a half-size larger so I should order down? I suppose there's never a discount available on these, right?post #66308 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:18ampost #66309 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:20ampost #66310 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:30ampost #66311 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:40ampost #66312 of 12241611/15/13 at 7:41ampost #66313 of 12241611/15/13 at 8:22am
FYI - I just called Leffot to see if they will be releasing any shell Aldens in the near future. I was told they will have two #8 offerings in the near future.
A plain toe (I think) boot with a crepe sole and an unlined dover pattern shoe with antique edge and brass eyelets. I'm pretty such I'm remembering the shoe/boot attributes correctly, but I could be wrong about the smaller details.
Just wanted to pass that along if anyone is interested.post #66314 of 12241611/15/13 at 8:33amQuote:
I would love to do that each morning, but I'm not sure I would have much energy left for the day (my work days start at 7:30). I suppose I would have to go to bed earlier than midnight though.post #66315 of 12241611/15/13 at 8:35amQuote:Originally Posted by Shawnc
