Wonderful casual shoe.  Are they from TSM?  I think they are the only ones that have the darker antique edge and welt, as opposed to the light (off-white) welt.  I get the impression most like the really light colored welt.  I prefer yours. Enjoy often and in great health my friend!

1) down to 15% relative to 1905 means little to us, more relevant is what percentage compared to 2010-2012 for example

2) the shortage started in late 2012, so with the 6 month tanning process - the market starts getting pinched in mid 2013

3) Horween reported that supply levels returned to pre-drought levels by the end of 2013, meaning the blip was a 12 month trough
 

So, while there is presently a relative shortage compared to 2012, by late 2014 / early 2015 we should reasonably expect output from the factory to return to what is was pre shortage.

While demand will still exceed supply, the summary is positive - more is on the way.

That's what I took from the article also.  Sounds very encouraging, provided you are ready and able to pull some triggers when items enter the market...

 

Sure looks like we are being set up (marketer's dream-come-true)

Looks like hand stitched to me.

Thanks Repp.,These are from Haberdash they have the darker edge which I also like better and double waterlock soles.

That's what I meant to say in my post. You're just a lot more eloquent haha! Well thought out!

So now the question is, return these cigar LWB's to theshoemart and wait for what I really want (ravello lwb)?

^cigar lwb would be the primary what I want!

Thanks for parsing it. Hopefully the craze will subside by year's end as well with more stock coming up. It's insane how every Leffot shell order is sold out within minutes of it going live.

Ravello LWB not going to arrive till late Fall if you're on the list. Enough time to put some money aside for them. Meanwhile, enjoy your cigar LWB.

Who plans to do the ravello LWB? Sounds like a list one should be on...

Thank you! Yes I'm aware, and find the shell thing a little ridiculous. That said, I do have some shell boots on pre-order, but none of my current models are constructed with it. I don't necessarily feel like I'm missing out since my office is very casual and I feel that many cordovan shoes would look out of place there.

Could be, hard to say.  One thing that I am pretty confident about is that they are not on Aberdeen.  Copley, perhaps?

 

No, not a chair, it's a coffee table.

DC has a list. Whether they will get made is an entirely different issue.
