Yeah, there are a couple pair of Cigar Indies up right now.  The other I've seen is an 11C or something weird like that.

Side note, someone should scoop these:

I would be awaiting the tracking number if they were my size
No flash in those pics. Just held at an angle under an overhead light. I gave them a pretty good look over when I got them and even took pics, but I must have just caught them at the right (or wrong) angle.

After a few steps a lot of it will be caught up in the folds, and Im guessing over time it will blend (someone with more knowledge than me might have better insight into that).  Sucks I know the feeling and I will admit my initial reaction and general behavior to this point falls in line with BK and Beebs words.

Taking Haberdash for granted.

Drives me nuts to see those and only wish they were my size - those are my grails except for maybe those color #4 tankers in Japan but those dont really exist so Ill pretend I never saw the pics

Shortwing Bal on Tremont, RL polka dot socks, otc.
nephew,
good looking combo

Thank you gents!

 

Uncle, your ravello PTBs look great.  Are they from the most recent batch earlier this fall?  Yours look like they have a dark storm welt and antique edge.  Mine have a dark edge and welt.

 

Wear often and in great health my friend!

My Dovers have the exact same dye splotching on portions of both shoes.  It is what it is.  No one will ever notice unless you point it out to them specifically.

I have similar splotching on my color 8 shortwing bluchers.  I didn't notice it until 6-7 months after purchasing them.  While I am not crazy about the splotching, this shoe has by far my favorite shade of color 8... (pic doesn't do the eggplant color justice)

King Tanker

The more I wear them, the more I like the tru-balance last of them.

Tifosi your new boots look awesome. They might have some splotching but that will be unnoticed once you start wearing them. They're one of a kind and they're AWESOME!
