Well, I joined in the complaining about the price of non-shell Aldens earlier today but have to eat my words as that did not stop me from snagging the last pre-order slot in my size for the Leffot CXL PT Boot.  Very much looking forward to these and plan to abuse the *#$(@ out of them.  I guess when you keep compulsively checking the same item over and over again, it is just easier to buy it and get on with life.

I personally love CXL boots, wrinkles and all.  Although the amount of creasing and wrinkling varies.  My Vibergs hardly wrinkle at all.  I have one pair of Alden NatCXL that has almost no wrinkling and another Alden pair that is a wrinkle machine.

congrats! You will not regret your choice. I preordered reverse chamois WT boots for $580 and know that once I get it I'll forget about price. Also next year the price will rise again.

Very nice --- I had my eye on those but couldn't justify another wingtip boot.  The reverse chamois (and those boots) look awesome though.

thank you my friend, it was a hard pill to swollow after "shelling" out $750 for Leffot Tankers.

Thank you for the clarification.

Speaking of Whiskey, anyone notice that Saphir now sells a Whiskey Cordovan Cream? (It's possible they have for months, I don't exactly check for it every day).

Thanks! Hope you're feeling better!

I didn't know about the Saphir whiskey. I haven't tried any of the Cordo creams yet … I've just used Reno and a bit of wax for shell. I'm tempted, but haven't seen a need to mix it up yet.

Cigar was too avant garde in that day.  Ravello was for communists! ;) 

 

[Edit: I love your ravello LHS Uncle. Mdubs was right on the money; you are in fact killin' it!]
