I have a few pairs of Alden (975s, and regular indy and gambles hill indys) and now a couple pairs of Vibergs (brandy and brown cxl service boots). I feel they're priced appropriately from a relative pricing standpoint - for cxl boots, an extra $200 makes sense. They're quite hefty and thick with a nice attention to detail, more than I was expecting based on the photos.

good to know that you are happy with Vibergs.

I just placed order for brown CXL from Leffot.

Did you size them same as your Barrie size?

Are you going to give up the chamois Greenwich?

For years I have always wondered about the difference between the Mahogany and the Ravello. I purchased the Mahogany Straight Tip Blucher many years ago from Alden SF and then recently received the Ravello chukkas from Alden SF.

What do you think?

Was there in fact an actual designation of Mahogany Shell by Alden? (i.e. Black, Color 8, Ravello, Whiskey, Color 4 and Color 2)

Also, notice the difference in the 9.5E Barrie and the 9.5E Aberdeen. It appears as if the Aberdeen could fit inside of the Barrie last. smile.gif

Pretty much.

I actually sized my cxls at 7.5 because my 975s are an 8c and that seemed to be the conventional advice (I'm 8.5b branock fwiw). They're too short. The Brandys at size 8 with medium thickness outdoor socks pretty much fit like my gambles indys (barrie) at an 8d with athletic socks.

Can't wait for mine. These look much nicer than I thought they would.

If you are giving it up, I would be interested in your spot.

Just picked up these black shell longwings on eBay.

Not sure I like them. shog[1].gif



On the positive side, my socks match the carpeting in my office. lol8[1].gif

That didn't take long!

Do you know how quickly the Vibergs sold out? Just curious.

Thanks but nevermind.  Thought we were the same size.

 

That's crazy about the Leffot preorder.  Makeups were too similar to their common boots but glad folks were able to get in on them.
