I thought the Day Trippers were speed hooks?  I hope I'm wrong because I would love all eyelets!

With the DC 10D cigar CT boot list over a dozen deep, maybe some of those decided on Ravello, and more down the list will get a shot. Then again, if they are from around here, they'll just take one in each color!

Mike's correct. Leffot ones are all eyelets. You may want Dig your email for their pics.

So what makes a wingtip a brixton?

Oh ok.  It was never confirmed (for me) whether it was all eyelets or speed hooks, but all the past pictures of the day trippers show speed hooks.  Maybe they changed the makeup, but I somehow doubt it....

Brixton is just the name of the Epaulet special makeup (they typically like to name their designs) for a wingtip boot with all eyelets, antique edge, flat welt, and double leather sole. They've done it in Ravello (back in '09 I think), Color 8, Cigar, Natty CXL, and Oxblood calf. This new version from TSM I think will be almost exactly like the Brixton, with the only difference being a reverse welt.

I wish Epaulet could run some of these again. :cry:

Does anyone know when DC will receive Ravello CT boot order? Thanks. Cheers.

Epaulet hasn't had any rare shell colors in a long time, but I wouldn't be surprised if they ran these again using other leathers. I'd probably pick up the Natty CXL if they released those again. Actually, a brown CXL version would be pretty nice.

Alden of Carmel stock a brown CXL version: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/Shoes-Brown_CXL_Wing_Tip_Boot_330.htm

Only difference from Epaulet are the heel broguing; AoC does not have them.

I have the brown CXL from Alden of Carmel But I would probably pick up the natural CXL at well. I wouldn't think the color 8 was out of reach either.

The AoC version has speedhooks, commando sole, and a reverse welt, as opposed to all eyelets, double leather sole, and flat welt on the Epaulet Brixton.

I'm surprised they haven't run the Color 8 version in a while, I got mine back in 2011 and they haven't sold another run since then.

Mike is not always right. I work predominantly off my memory when I respond to these questions and there are far to many designs to keep them all straight. :-) Plus I did not have a fun return trip home and am operating on limited sleep.
