I have been looking for some black longwings for some time - does anyone know who makes the black fleece version?

Thanks!

That is a very nice looking shoe. I unfortunately have no clue who makes the shoe. I personally find the pull tabs on them a pidge odd. I would forgo them and get the 9751. For a shoe to last you decades (with proper care), I would go for the Shell.

Uncle,

Those Whiskey LHSes are beautiful and have a great glow.

Shouldn't it be exactly opposite Mike? And since you're not getting the ravello day tripper this one's an obvious yes?
post #85236 of 122416
Is the ravello daytripper actually coming to market?
post #85237 of 122416
One can only hope. And that it looks like the previous version or the Kirkwood.

In the wild Leffot Naval boot in black shell... 

Just to give the folks on the fence a nudge.

This is a little bit ago, but it shows the black glow :)

HAHA

I think so. I put in a deposit and I was told they'd contact me when they arrive. This is my first time being on a list so I don't really know how it works. I hope it doesn't get cancelled somehow between now and December because I just gave up another make up for them.

I'm guessing Grenson.
I have a pair of older BBBF longwings which were made by Grenson.
The nail pattern on the heel looks like both C&J and Grenson but C&J doesn't often make longwings.

Never saw them posted. I hope leffot is not adopting LS's preorder model on exotics.

I know color 4 is super rare as is. However Horween lists a color 2 and color 6. They seem to get more and more red and less and less purple from 8 down to 2.

Just curious on the color 2 unicorns if we know what styles have been produced, by who and what they look like?


Alden of Carmel recently issued some color 2 longwing bluchers that it had Alden make to commemorate an anniversary. Beautiful and fun casual dress shoes.  There are a number of pictures posted on this thread from the last few months, as rydenfan indicated.  I have never seen other make-ups although there may be some out there from the past.  If you are interested, I would get in touch with Alden of Carmel to see what it may have.

Outstanding pairing!  Excellent picture showing a great-looking use of that naval boot.  Taste is individual, but this boot with bright, hard-to-match pants like those, all shades of grey, grey flannels and jeans are a great look.
