Do you think there will be a strong secondary market for whiskey WTBs and Ravello CTBs?

I think those would command a couple hundred more for NIB. But hey, for a few hundred is it worth the hassle.. ? For me no. I'd prefer to sell to other solid SF members for actual cost and hope the favor would be repaid someday

I doubt it.

It costs $980 to MTO with Crockett and Jones.

Once ebay prices of Alden's whiskey WTB surpass $980 it doesn't make sense to go with alden's whiskey WTB, unless you are die-hard alden fan/collector. $980 on ebay=$880 after fees meaning only a $100 profit which wouldn't even be worth it for the seller.

 

Even from a collector's point of view, wingtip boot isn't that exotic. Maybe whiskey + tanker boot would make it worthwile for a collector.

 

 

Sorry to say, but crockett and jones SkyeII looks nicer, and the shade of whiskey shell has been pretty consistent judging from pics from the past 2 C&J MTO's. At least you will know that you will get a nice golden whiskey vs alden's muted, pastey whiskey as of late.

Just my $0.02.

Gentlemen, thanks for the advice on the dark cigar ptb's. I was 50/50 on what to do until I found another issue with them. There's always next time...

Is there anyone who ordered the DC ravello captoe boot and wants to trade with my order from Leffot? I prefer the commando sole over the waterlock sole. Size 9D.

That is not sex.  They are shoes.  

 

While some conflate the two, that is weird, and should be discouraged.

Those of you with the Unionmade Natural CXL NST, how do you like it after some wear? I love the look (my go-to right now is Epaulet's Innsbruck LWB) and may pull the trigger. How's the flex welt sole on a boot? How's the batch of CXL?

Cheers,
ww
