Outstanding work today gents!! I don't have access to my phone camera today.  I'm sporting my chocolate brown calf LWB, Alden for J Crew... maybe time to resole.  I'm thinking of going with a Dainite replacement.

@MrDV
- I have a ravello shortwing boot on the way via TSM, hope mine looks as awesome as yours!

nephew, thank you

Does TSM have a regular list for Ravello wingtip boots?  Also, post more pics of the Whiskey wingtips, whoever has them! Cheers.

If you call Ed, he will add you to his list. It will frankly probably be a while unless someone drops off the current run, but it costs nothing to join their list.

The Whiskey Wingtip Boots are still about 6 months away. They were only submitted to production roughly last week.

^^^actually @mdubs getting on their list requires credit card up front with funds placed on hold until delivery. You give them cc authorization up front and they charge you when they arrive. It's not exactly, "won't cost you anything to be placed on a list," at least not like Alden DC lists.

Well, except that you are, from my understanding, free to back out and not take the shoes when they arrive…  So if you don't get charged up front, and you don't have to accept them when they arrive, it really doesn't cost you anything.

Some of what Brooks carries (or dare I say carried) is outstanding and available no where else: tassel loafers with foxing on the heel, unlined lhs, ptb on the m-58 last with metal eyelets and no storm welt, and wingtips with metal eyelets and the plaza-like last (can't remember the number).

I was in touch with my deep-throat source at Alden hq. She said that Brooks is not ordering as much as they used to. So the problem seems to be on the buy side. I have a call into Brooks.

All time nice! My unlined pair hasn't mellowed as beautifully, but they don't get out much.

I checked around today. Alden DC has a few sizes of the black grant commando boots laying around, but there are no current plans to rerun the boot at this time and none are currently in production.

Yes, I know the drill with the lists at TSM. I was just curious about whether this is a standing order/list TSM has. For some reason, I thought the Whiskey Wings had arrived already; I do not follow closely much of this stuff, let alone the makeups that do not interest me. 

 

P.S.- Anything in Whiskey, Ravello, or #4 only improves with wear.

Checking the stock of color 8 at the local grocer today. I think I like the horse I rode in on better though.

That's a shame. I really want a bb #8 tassel.

So do they have your size?

My mocha twill arrived and I like their feel. Haven't worn them out yet.

Thanks, they look awesome. I bought a pair from the last FF round as well. I need to get them tapered and see how they pair with my ravello boots as well!
