Plaza NST Boot in #8

 

post #94262 of 122416

Guys how rare is the whiskey wingtip boot on a scale of 1 to 10? Lets say  a 1 being a pair of brown indy boots and 10 being color #2 longwings? Want to see if I will ever have a shot at these.

That's a bummer.  To me, that's one of the major drawbacks of lighter shell colors.  Dirt, dust, and spots tend to show up much more on them than say, Color 8.  Eh, what can you do?  The boots were made for wearing!

At least a 9

Apparently they also have a ravello coming early 2015, and I got on the list for that as well though I'm 5 back for my size so I'm not holding out. 

TSM basically has the same cigar boot coming, though I only gave my name and number and don't know much about my chances. This is quite a game...

You could quite down the language for this particular forum...

Wow a 9??!?! Is this why people were so angry yesterday? So my chances of getting these are slim to none?

Folks were upset more for reasons of equity than rarity. Whiskey wt boots will reappear again in the future, no doubt, perhaps unlike Colors 2 and 4.

I think your chances are average that you'll get a shot at them...eventually.  As long as you're not looking to own a pair in the next few years then you may luck into some in the future.  I think the real question is: will you still want the same model 5 years from now and will you have the cash in hand to jump on them when the chance presents itself?

And I thought my post got lost in the shuffle! I assume you are talking about actual language used and not the subject matter?

 

Anywho..anyone get on these cigar lists?

Has anyone done a whiskey wingtip boot? I can't remember ever seeing one.

If so, please post a pic if possible. Thanks!

Not getting into the anger issues of various people, myself included, I would say that yes, the chances of getting those are very slim, absent some sort of sea change in the availability of rare shell models.  It is *possible* so your chances are not "none" but I wouldn't hold my breath.  Some people are more optimistic but I am not sure when the last time this make was done before was and when the next run will happen.

For anyone serious about a Whiskey wingtip boot, head over to the C&J forum. There's an MTO happening without the commando sole.

Whiskey PTBs from a few days ago


And my new Ravello LWBs arrived today! The color is fantastic (as everyone had already noted)
