Good grief!! I was on the Unionmade site last night at like 8:30 and didn't see the new releases. Now the size 9's in the Halleck are all gone. Maybe I'll pull the trigger on the 9.5 and buy a pack of wool socks to fill the space, lol.

A little blurry, as I was shaking with nervous anxiety to test them out in these conditions.

The second pic is a little better, once I got to the office. I wasn't so shaky... haha.
American Trench boot socks FTW.

Nice looking Indy Boots guys!!! You need to get an iPhone 6+ with optical image stabilization. It helps quite a bit!

Frankly, I am concerned about the flaw. There was an unusual number of those Ravello PT Boots on the seconds list. They must have been harder to produce or something. Surprises me.

Modified last is harder to produce. Add the shaft of the boot and more difficult still. I'm sure they'll be awesome - fantastic score at about 40% of what it'd cost to import them.

Good info Roguls, learn new things everyday. Ravello PT boots were released from Paris customs and on the way to Canadian North. France had a Bank long weekend and it took a bit longer..

Congrats Mike @mdubs Post some pictures!

Hey all, does anyone have any experience with the perforated cap toe CXL boots from TSM?  I like the pattern and the brass eyelets, but the edging looks super light.  Looking for a nice weekend winter boot to kick around in. I already have the CXL LWBs, so I thought the CT would be something slightly different.

Orvis used to stock the George Boot in #8 and they were often available at a slight discount. They don't have them listed on their site anymore though (no AWWs either so I'm thinking they stopped carrying Alden altogether).

Of the new drops at Union Made, I'm really tempted by the navy monk strap.

 

TSM still has the George in both king and black shell, Aberdeen.  Beautiful boot.  SF used to have it in suede but not sure about nowadays.

beautiful shell color uncle mac.

so good, so good. ravello wins again.

How is everyone getting these boots? I keep calling and calling and I am always late to the game...I am like a kid in a candy store but my favorite candies are always sold out cloud.gif. Those boots are so sick and on my grail list. If anyone doesn't like or has a foot chop't off (and you wear an 8d), please let me know. I have two feet.

Enjoy the weekend. I envy all you guys with Ravello and Whiskey.

Fellow 8D er. haha

Does anyone have a picture of the milkshake suede indy's or captoe boots with some wear? I've seen it in my size on TSM emails the past few times, and i think it looks good, but don't know what they really look like.

That's a fine looking boot sir. Great Friday look.

I know. I am surprised the 8d is such a common size. I hate being a size. Oh well, I am several wait lists. I wish someone would do a whiskey or ravello PT boot. I missed out when Leather Soul did the boot a years ago.

You kind of have to give up your life and just live on this thread waiting for the 5 minute window that pops up once or twice a year (or three) to act.

Lol this, exactly the way I got my whiskey LHS and my Leffot tanker this year. Right place at the right time.
