JCrew socks and chinos...
One of each please! I love them both, I'm on the AOC preorder for Ravello LWB. I will be thrilled if my pair is the color of either of yours!

Then my understanding of welts is off. I don't see the difference between J Crew's and Leffot's welts here (what I thought was a flat welt). And I'd call the Indy's welt a 270 and the 975's a 360/storm welt.post #86576 of 1224167/11/14 at 9:41ampost #86577 of 1224167/11/14 at 9:47ampost #86578 of 1224167/11/14 at 9:50amQuote:Beautiful shoes Don L. Great photography. For awhile I considered getting this traditional style from one of the old Budapest and Vienna shoemakers. But I must agree with you that the finish on Aldens #8 shell is nonpareil to just about anything else available.Originally Posted by Don L
As an owner from the first run of #8 Epaulet Alt Wien's I can say that you will not be disappointed. best finish on any pair of Alden's I have.

Leffot tankers are definitely a nice makeup. They're on the casual side (barrie last, antique welt, commando sole, speedhooks), but I think they work well for that use. I guess it depends on your needs and your current collection.post #86580 of 1224167/11/14 at 9:57am
