I meant to get my name on the list for these when I was in DC but I'm not sure if I succeeded or not. I better check on that.

I got on both lists today, although I would need a cancellation or two to get them. :devil: Spend, spend, spend during the holiday season fellow 10D'ers and cancel when the Williams hit the same time as the order!

 

I was also told the Medallion Cap is in production and should be January, but they (he) still had no idea on the Grant Boot.

Hey guys do you think it is redundant to have some shortwing boots and longwing bluchers in the same color? My rotation as of now is only 3 pairs, this next purchase being my fourth, so keep in mind that I have a small rotation. I had my eyes set on a pair of brown LWB until the ralph lauren sale came up and I got myself a pair of lindrick's boots. Now I am wondering if I should still buy the brown LWB.

Natural Chromexcel Cap Toes up on J. Crew, placed my order just now.

Was deciding if I should order the Natural Chromexcel cap toes that were recently posted on Leffot, and am glad that I held off. 

The 360 welt, commando sole, and stitching on the sides of the upper are much more my style. 

Nice pickup! This is one of my favorite makeups that J Crew has done. Usually there is one or two minor selections that they make that I don't like, but every part of this works.

Does anyone do a black CXL plain toe boot? Preferably on Plaza but would take Barrie. I am on the hunt for a black CXL boot
post #66460 of 122416
Thanks! I find the toe box on that Elston last quite rounded/bulbous in person.

With regard to black boots, I'd really like the black shell Context Tanker but my size is unavailable.

Do I have any alternative supplier options for this exact boot?

Approximately how often does Context re-stock? Could I pre-order?

Leather Soul made a similar boot years ago, but I haven't seen it restocked there

Context offered the black boot I believe for the first time this year. Given it is sold out I would expect them to restock.

Context requires full payment for preorders, which I dislike out of principle. I bought my black tankers from them after they were delivered, there seemed to have been a lot of sizes when I ordered, but with the boot now more well known, it is risky to wait.

Ok, I think you may be right. How about commando sole as the only requirement? If anyone has any in size 10, I'm here!

I'm my experience Context are very good to deal with. You should contact them and see if they can help you out. Yes they require full payment upfront, but their delivery dates are spot on.
