Yea, but the point of the spoiler is that people can see the content if they want to. If they want to see the referenced pics they can. We can't help you with the last part, haha! smile.gif

What color is tobacco chamois? Colorblind and can't tell if it's green or brown.  Also, any idea why the Leffot tankers almost $100 more than most non-shell boots?

Brown, and the prices have been rising.

Thanks.  Seems like a rather large jump for a price hike, so wasn't sure if there was something else behind it.

The NST are about $30 more than the wingtip boots in the same material. It could be the hand stitching.

Makes sense, plus commando soles usually cost a bit extra.

Agree.  Commando tends to be extra and NST tends to be extra (though not always).  The Leffot ones are definitely pricey but IMO worth a little extra.  The color is a very deep and rich brown.

What is the consensus on the Need Supply x Alden Church Hill Indy boot? I am on the list for the Madison whiskey Indy. Does the Church Hill boot bring enough distinction to rationalize a purchase?

Only have 3 pairs of Alden's- 2 of which a PTB in shell. Visited SF store and got a very nice fitting for all the styles and lasts. I am a 13D in the Barrie and a 13E in the more narrow ones. I am smitten by the ravello ones. If anyone runs across a gunship in ravello then I would be greatly appreciative of a quick note. Cheers to my fellow shoe lovers.

That old Ravello. Man I hope the NST is in a similar shade.

Alden DC might be your best bet, if not in stock then on the next order

Welcome to size 13 hell...many of the specials done by stores never order 13 so you would want to contact them often and hope they can add it for you. On the barried a 12d barely works for me so I can luck out once in a while. Good luck and happy hunting.

I currently don't own any black shoes at all (is that weird?) and am considering a pair of black shell PTBs or chukkas to add to my rotation. 


These don't have a ton of wear but you can see how they are developing...
