Of the three, I prefer the color of the PTB and LWB. They appear to be a much truer medium brown than the boots, which have very strong red tones. Different strokes for different folks ......

I agree.  I wish my ravello LWBs were not as red in tone.  I prefer the rich carmel shade myself...

NST in carmel ravello...

Today was an unfortunate day in my life as an Alden collector. I was literally seconds away from kopping the much heralded king tassels from TSM when I decided to check the thread one last time in case someone announced that they had grabbed a pair in my size already. Of course, all hell broke loose on the TSM's retraction of sale prices and I ended up feeling too badly about spending the full 100% on the shoes. (FWIW, I'm not inclined to bust the chops of the forum member who called about the sale; I often have called Leffot rather than place my order on the web as I like the human interaction and feel like it's a way of making sure nothing with my order gets screwed up. Seemed like an honest mistake that anyone could have made on a busy day.)

I thought I'd console myself and shoot for the natty cxl boots I've been after for a few weeks, but was told by TSM that they won't let me break up the payment over 2 credit cards. Ack!

To top it all off, the Apple geniuses confirmed that my computer's hard drive is not only likely cooked (along with some of my important data and family pictures), but that its logic board is also apparently done. So, by the end of the day, I spent the equivalent of four pairs of shell boots investing in a new computer rig, backup system. Of course, dear wife feels the sting and has asked me to dial back my SF-related purchases for a stretch.

Rant over. Just needed to get it off my chest, as I thought venting to patients would be a bad idea wink.gif

PS - is there a Mac method for my new Mac? It just doesn't have the smell or patina of Ravello, Whiskey, Cigar or King.

If you aren't already backing up your mac to an external hard drive using Time Machine, I highly recommend it.

Gorgeous!
For years I never gave the tassels a look. But I think I may have to add these in 2014, as long as the Aberdeen works for my feet. I thought the Van last worked, but after a few wears it was evident it didn't.

My black NST (which I have always liked but worried about overlap with my black tanker boots) sold on eBay to a fraudulent buyer, so eBay cancelled the transaction... I'm glad they did as Prez's photo has convinced me to keep mine. Great shoes.

Grant Cigar Cap's today

post #68862 of 122416

I know Need Supply has the monthly 10% off code, but I have one for 15% that expires today if anyone is interested. Its Alden supply is pretty limited right now, but if you see something please PM me for the code. I'd prefer to give it to use on Alden, but anything more expensive where the extra 5% would matter is fine.

Haberdash is having another 20% sitewide sale today.
Works on Alden although I suspect their inventory is getting thin.
Site is getting hammered.

Hope the two people in line in front of me for the cigar cap toe pass them up when they become available at Alden DC.  So sweet.

Thanks for the heads up. Anyone happen to know what last the Color 8 cap toe boots are on? I sent them an email, but I'm not sure how fast I'll hear back.
